Pharmacology for Student and Pupil Nurses and Students in Associated Professions is based on lectures that have been updated and presented to nurses in training for the State Registration and State Enrolment Examinations and to Students in Dispensing. This book describes therapies and drug trends in the industry, as well as many types of drugs, their administration, dosage, usage, and effects. Functions of the pertinent human anatomy are included to illustrate the absorption of these drugs. This book includes a section on patient counseling; the use of the International System of Units (SI); and the immune-response process related to specialized fields of treatment. Patient counseling is undertaken for patients who will continue treatment at home. The nurse gives proper advice on the administration of the patient's medicine. SI was adopted to enhance the standardization of the unit of measurement for volume, weight, temperature, and length. This standard includes the use of the terms Celsius, millimole, and joule and the way of writing abbreviations and numbers in the Metric system. The immune-response process deals with the mechanism and related aspects concerning the two groups of cytotoxics, antimitotics and antimetabolites. The side effects of these drugs when used, for example, in chemotherapy, are discussed. This book will prove useful to pharmacists, student pharmacy technicians, professors of pharmacology, practitioners of general medicines, and specialists with interests in drug therapy.
