Handbook of Pediatric Drug Therapy and Immunization

by RK Suneja

Handbook of pediatric drug therapy and immunization provides vital information about key aspects of drug therapy and immunization in neonates, infants, and children, derived from various authoritative sources in a simple, easy to access and apply format. It covers treatment of a broad range of important pediatric disorders such as infections, asthma, epilepsy, congestive heart failure, diabetes, hereditary clotting disorders, blood component therapy, and management of emergencies such as shock, status asthmaticus, status epilepticus, diabetic ketoacidosis, anaphylaxis, hypertensive emergency, cardiac arrhythmias, and life support-requiring situations. The guidelines by Indian Academy of paediatrics, world health organization (WHO), and other international authorities in respect of schedules of immunization, appropriate use of various vaccines, and measures for pre-and postexposure prophylaxis in children have been described. A separate section provides information about drugs used in children—their indications, dosage, modes of use, precautions, and side effects along with trade names of some standard proprietary products.
