Top customer reviews
I have found this book an extremely useful resource in providing my patients with the correct advice as to how to take their medicines via their PEG / RIG.
I initially bought it when doing a case-study for my Non-medical prescribing qualification.
Myself and my colleagues were so impressed with it, I have now donated it to the radiotherapy department for all to use.
The 1st section has practical information about enteral feeding tubes including how to flush the tubes, how to use different formulations of drugs with eneteral tubes, sizes of syringes for introduction of drugs into the eneteral tubes - and much more.
The next section lists common drugs in A-Z format. For, each drug, it tells you what formulation it comes in and whether it can be used via an eneteral feeding tube. If it can't, there will be an alternative drug / formulation suggested.
It's only drawback is that it's a text-book and as other reviewers have commented, text-books go out of date relatively quickly.
Even so, we have found that most commonly used medicines do not change much and the book is still a very useful resource.
I wouldn't hesitate in recommending it.
