This pocket-sized quick reference provides essential information on the most commonly-prescribed drugs, looking at the implications for use on both mother and child. Intended as a supplementary text to The British National Formulary and other pharmacology textbooks, The Midwife's Pharmacopoeia provides at-a-glance information on mode of action, side effects, contraindications and interactions of all main drug types. Emergency situations are also covered, and a glossary of terms and abbreviations plus guidelines for further reading makes this an essential companion for all midwives - whether in a hospital environment or in the community.
