Advise about IV Drug Books

  1. I am about to complete the LPN expanded IV Therapy class and was wondering which IV drug book to purchase. I am sure they are all helpful, but I wondered if there is one that is better. Any thoughts?

    My IV drug guide is from Nursing I believe. It isn't very big, but it has had everything I've needed so far. I haven't ever had another brand to compare it to.

    I like the F.A. Davis Drug Guide. I have found more IV compatibilites there than any other reference guides. My last guide was issued in 2000. We still use it in our ICU/SDU. Of course we have more updated versions of Nursing Drug Guide, but everyone tends to go for Davis if in doubt.
