The clinical treatments described and recommended in this
publication are based on research and consultation with
nursing, medical, and legal authorities. To the best of our
knowledge, these procedures reflect currently accepted
practice. Nevertheless, they can’t be considered absolute
and universal recommendations. For individual applications,
all recommendations must be considered in light of
the patient’s clinical condition and, before administration of new or infrequently used drugs, in light of the latest
package-insert information. The authors and publisher
disclaim any responsibility for any adverse effects resulting from the suggested procedures, from any undetected
errors, or from the reader’s misunderstanding of the text. © 2011 by Lippincott Williams & Wilkins. All rights reserved. This book is protected by copyright. No part of it may be
