If you work with children, you must have this book.

For more than two decades, Pediatric Injectable Drugs (The Teddy Bear Book), has served an important and continuing need for reliable evidence-based information specific to pediatric injectable drugs. The tenth edition of this invaluable reference has grown to cover 238 drugs commonly used in the treatment of infants and children, including 20 new to this edition. The Teddy Bear Book covers neonates through adolescents, with age-specific dosing and administration guidelines throughout. With three new editors, who collectively bring 75 years of pediatric pharmacy practice experience to the book, the tenth edition is the most thorough and comprehensive reference yet.

As with previous editions, the structure of each of the drug monographs covers the following areas:Brand NamesMedication Error PotentialContraindications and WarningsInfusion-Related CautionsDosage (age specific)Dosage Adjustment in Organ DysfunctionMaximum DosageAdditivesSuitable DiluentsMaximum ConcentrationsPreparation and DeliveryIV PushIntermittent InfusionContinuous InfusionOther Routes of AdministrationComments
Also included is a comprehensive list of abbreviations and more than 4800 references. This is the only pediatric (neonates through adolescents) parenteral drug reference that covers limited fluid amounts, maximum doses, and limited intravenous sites - issues that pediatric practitioners often face in their patients. When it comes to pediatric injectable drugs, valid safety and efficacy research can be hard to locate. This indispensable reference changes all that.

Pediatric injectable drugs 10th edition (The teddy bear book) By Stephanie J. Phelps, Tracy M. Hagemann, Kelly R. Lee, A. Jill Thompson.
By Laurence A. Goldberg
An indispensable reference for practitioners in pediatrics.
Over the past 20 years, this book has served as a valuable reference source for evidence-based information on pediatric injectable drugs. This latest edition has been revised to include 238 monographs of commonly used pediatric parenteral medications. Twenty new monographs have been added since the previous edition was published and the existing monographs have been extensively reviewed and updated to include the most recent literature available.
Much of the information has been compiled in an evidence-based manner from primary literature, including case reports, observational reports and comparative trials. Many licensed medicines are not formally tested on children and lack rudimentary dosing information for pediatric use.
This book addresses this deficiency by compiling these case histories, accidental overdose reports and clinical studies into a single source of reference for licensed and unlabeled use of intravenous medicines in pediatric patients.
Unless otherwise specified, doses are banded into age groups. These age groups are as follows: neonates (premature and term), up to one month: infants, one to 24 months: children, two to 12 years: adolescents, 12 to 18 years. Where applicable, adult dosing is also provided. Dosage is usually expressed as mg per kg per day in divided doses. Some doses require a calculation of body surface area or ideal body mass, and nomograms for carrying out these calculations can be found in the appendices.
Drugs requiring dosage adjustment in patients with renal or hepatic dysfunction and drugs requiring serum drug concentration monitoring are indicated. Miscellaneous information, such as sodium content, is included in the comments section of each monograph. Information pertaining to adults is sometimes included as, in the absence of reports on pediatric use, adult data may be relevant and may be cautiously extrapolated to the pediatric population.
A comprehensive list of abbreviations and more than 4,800 references are included. This edition of the book is also available both as a mobile app and as an eBook.
This important book provides guidance to pharmacists and nurses who administer IV drugs to neonates, infants, children and adolescents. The four editors between them have over 75 years of pediatric pharmacy practice experience and this has contributed to a most thorough and comprehensive reference source.
Pediatric injectable drugs 10th edition is an indispensable reference for practitioners working in pediatrics.
