Davis's Drug Guide for Nurses with Integrated Calculators, based on Davis's Drug Guide (FA Davis Co), is a remarkable advance in drug reference. DDGNIC contains the entire content of the Davis's Drug Guide (10th Edition) - and has Integrated Calculation tools with all weight based medications. The 10th Edition has been extensively updated and is now more resourceful than ever! This product is focused on patient safety with critical information about vulnerable populations, including expanded pediatric information with new indications and dosing recommendations.
