This is a new book in the American Society of Health System Pharmacists Point-of-Care series. Emergency Cardiovascular Pharmacotherapy addresses all aspects of managing patients in an emergency code situation from the roles of the code team members to drug-specific information. This pocket-sized book reflects the most current ACLS guidelines and provides algorithms for use in code situations. Chapters on therapeutic hypothermia, toxicology, and fibrinolytics provide a resource on all aspects of emergency cardiac care. Embedded throughout the book are clinical pearls and case studies that help to translate the subject matter of the section to the practical world of the practicing clinicians.
