For nearly 44 years, Plumer's Principles & Practice of Infusion Therapy has retained its position as the most reliable, complete source of information addressing intravenous therapy for practicing clinicians, educators, and students. The Ninth Edition of Plumer's Principles and Practice of Infusion Therapy provides clear, concise coverage of basic and advanced infusion procedures, as well as current Infusion Nurses' Society standards of practice. You'll enhance your understanding and hone your skills with this new edition featuring the most current coverage of infusion therapy, procedures, standards, and equipment, along with practical new features and an emphasis on safety considerations, as well as evidence-based practice. Plumer's Principles and Practice of Infusion Therapy begins with an overview of IV therapy, including how to minimize risk and enhance performance, and then addresses assessment and monitoring; clinical decision making; patient specific therapies, and infusion therapy for children, the elderly, and across the continuum of care. Updated information on INS Standards of Practice insure that your skills keep pace with current requirements and revised clinical and patient education content will help you prepare for certification. Nurses will also find step-by-step application features that address interventions and procedures while offering guidelines, equipment checklists, actions, and rationales for each procedure.
