The new second edition now includes discussion of intrathecal, intraosseous, and epidural procedures, as well as coverage of subcutaneous pain management, conscious sedation, and the use of catheters not being inserted intravenously. Addressing every aspect of infusion therapy, this text can be applied to any healthcare setting. INFUSION THERAPY IN CLINICAL PRACTICE also covers management, quality assurance, entrepreneurial roles, and future considerations for infusion therapy. Each chapter can stand alone, making it a great reference tool for practitioners. Author is the Intravenous Nurses Society, a highly-respected nursing organization that is the authority in the field. All four chief editors are experienced intravenous nurses, some in both research and clinical practice. Over 30 expert contributors have participated in this text, ensuring that content is current, accurate, and pertinent to todays infusion therapist. Chapter 19, Intravenous Therapy Calculations covers formulas, their uses, and sample calculations, addressing all the basics a novice practitioner needs, and providing a comprehensive refresher for the experienced practitioner. An entire unit in the book explores the unique challenges presented by infusion therapy in alternative settings, including home care.

Basic material is addressed first and organized to facilitate learning for a new practitioner. Advanced and supplemental chapters are located later in the text, to be addressed as the student knows and understands the more basic material.

The Case Management chapter covers care and cost management, the health care system, and the IV nurses role as part of the health care team. The Conscious Sedation chapter presents all of the basic information: what it is, how it is used, what agents are used, patient selection, and expected outcomes and more! The IV Therapy in Radiology chapter covers the broadening role of infusion therapy in radiology and the role of the IV nurse within this specialized sector.

Praise for Beebe, Beebe, and Ivy's "Communication: Principles for a Lifetime 2nd Edition" “lThis book has it all-mention of culture, of technology, skills orientation, good learning tools, and appropriate reading level." -Leonard Assante, "Volunteer State Community College" " The most unique design incorporated into this textbook is the pentagon model or five fundamental principles. The model introduces and then reinforces the precepts upon which effective/competent communication is built. Finally, some ethical or moral standards for students to contemplate in the current world order." -Debra Sue Wyatt, "South Texas Community College" " The writing is clear and concise an yet still involves the student's imagination by using interesting current examples and posing ethical issues for consideration." -Annette Folwell, "University of Idaho" Excitement for the 1st Edition " I like the approach of the five principles of communication to organize some of the fundamentals of communication. They organize fundamentals such as nonverbal, language, perception and the self in a manner I've not seen in other introductory communication texts...The combination of areas under each principle helps to accomplish the authors' goal of a more manageable amount of material for survey of communication." -Elizabeth Lindsey, "New Mexico State University" " It was a pleasure reading this text. Its conversational tone and use of contemporary examples make it approachable to students." -Timothy P. Mottet, "Southwest Texas State University" " This is an impressive text. The authors have done a good job of condensing the vast amount ofinformation related to communication studies into a manageable and cohesive text." -Phil Hoke, "The University of Texas at San Antonio" " The five basic principles give the book cohesiveness. Each chapter is clearly related to the overriding principles of effective communication stressed in the text. The more I read, the more I appreciated the effectiveness of this organizational strategy." -Carol L. Hunter, "Brookdale Community College"
