A compact and regularly updated reference with all the information doctors, midwives and nurses need to know about the prescribing of drugs, and their safe and accurate administration. Information on placental transfer, teratogenicity, and toxicity is provided for each listed drug, as is information on the extent to which the drug appears in breast milk (and the extent to which this matters). A whole page monograph is provided for all the commonly used drugs, blood products and vaccines and for a range of "orphan" drugs not mentioned in other standard formularies. There is also introductory advice on the management of suspected infection, renal failure, neonatal pain, circulatory and vascular problems and the control of seizures.
