    This DVD will show you how such drugs as vancomycin, clindamycin, and trimethoprim-sulfamethoxazole work to treat life-threatening infections, such as bacteremia, septic shock, and Pneumocystis carinii pneumonia (PCP); how to prevent - or recognize and treat - adverse reactions and drug interactions; and how to assess the effectiveness of drug therapy. You'll discover how the actions of these antibiotics may affect your nursing care before, during, and after drug therapy.

    With this DVD, you'll learn:

    • why vancomycin is prescribed for patients with bacteremia caused by certain resistant gram-positive bacteria
    • how the fourth-generation cephalosporin cefepime works by preventing the cross-linking of peptidoglycan chains, which usually strengthen and support the bacterial cell wall
    • which drugs are effective against bacteria that secrete beta-lactamase
    • which drugs are preferred for treatment of PCP
    • how certain antibiotics can cause hearing loss or renal failure
    • why you should check blood pressure and blood glucose levels frequently in a patient who is receiving I.V. pentamidine......and much, much more.
