About The Syringe Driver: Continuous Subcutaneous

Product description The syringe driver is a simple and cost-effective method of delivering a continuous subcutaneous infusion (CSCI). A CSCI provides a safe and effective way of drug administration and can be used to maintain symptom control in patients who are no longer able to take oral medication. There have been several developments in this field since the second edition of this highly successful book. The text in this edition has been completely revised, incorporating new treatment options and an extensive list of new compatibility data. This book serves as a valuable reference source, providing comprehensive review of syringe driver use and administration of drugs via CSCI. The first chapter provides an overview of syringe drivers and CSCIs, including a useful array of frequently asked questions. The second chapter provides revised and referenced information relating to most drugs likely to be administered via a CSCI using a syringe driver. The third chapter discusses the control of specific symptoms that are often encountered when CSCIs are required. The fourth and final chapter contains an extensive, referenced list of physical and chemical stability data relating to drug combinations administered via CSCI. Review Review from previous edition: "This book is a valuable resource providing a wealth of information about the use of syringe drivers and CSCIs in palliative care and should be readily available wherever syringe drivers are used. One can only imagine the trouble experienced by the authors in researching, collating and presenting all the data, but I know the second edition will be even better." --IAHPC Website "The straightforward comprehensive style and in-depth coverage of the subject should, along with its relatively low cost, ensure that this book will soon be found in nearly all palliative care units." --Progress in Palliative Care "A welcome resource... This book will be an excellent source of information for palliative care practitioners and should be readily available as a valuable reference source." --Palliative Medicine 2002 "I would highly recommend it as a resource handbook for any service where syringe drivers are used for symptom control." --Centre for Palliative Care Research and Education August 2003 "What...are the benefits of 'upgrading' to this new edition...[i]s it worth the investment? Will it make a difference to your practice? The answer to both these questions is undoubtedly, yes. The second edition is a 'must have.' I cannot recommend this book highly enough. If using or advising on CSCIs in clincal practice, having the first edition of The Syringe Driver is not good enough. The text itself is essential, but only the newest edition will do." --European Journal of Cancer Care, Vol 16 January 2007 About the Author Andrew Dickman is the author several books, including Drugs in Palliative Care, the Palliative Care Formulary (PCF2) and Chronic Pain, part of the Oxford Pain Management Library. He has also contributed chapters to several books, including the Care of the Dying, Wall and Melzack's Textbook of Pain and the textbook, Palliative Medicine. His job involves clinical work, research and education.
