Pharmacology Case Studies

Rundio A, Lorman W. Silver Spring, MD: American Nurses Association, Nursing Knowledge Center; 2015. Paperback; 184 pages. ISBN-13: 978-1935213680

This book offers a unique case-based approach to pharmacology content. Each chapter includes one or more cases and a discussion of the rationale for selecting specific agents to manage the identified diagnosis. The authors address a variety of topics including psychiatric disorders, heart failure, postanesthesia and perioperative care, and substance use disorders. In discussing the management of various health problems, the authors do not confine their discussion to pharmacologic interventions. The inclusion of nonpharmacologic care is best emphasized in the final chapter on holistic nursing care.

Overall, this is a nice supplement to a pharmacology course or as a refresher for advanced practice nurses looking to reaffirm their understanding of the pharmacologic management of specific disorders.
