This classic pocket guide to drug dosing is the most complete resource of its kind. Easy-to-read tables cover dosing information for more than 450 drugs when used in adult patients with impaired renal function. The addition of pediatric dosing information makes this new edition even more useful.

Physiological changes associated with renal disease profoundly affect the kidney’s ability to regulate the internal fluid environment. This fifth edition emphasizes the metabolism of drugs eliminated by the kidney as well as the importance of the patient’s glomerular filtration rate.

Dosing adjustments are provided for antimicrobial and antiviral agents, antihypertensive and cardiovascular agents, analgesics, sedatives and hypnotics, and miscellaneous agents. Recommendations are included for supplemental drug dosing during renal replacement therapy.
