Application and Review of Pediatric Pharmacotherapy Second Edition

By  Mark L. Glover

This second edition of Application and Review of Pediatric Pharmacotherapy increase your understanding of pharmacotherapy prescribed to pediatric patients with these realistic case studies.

Application and Review of Pediatric Pharmacotherapy is designed as a self-assessment tool, comprising over 1,000 multiple choice questions. It enhances your knowledge of pediatric pharmacotherapy by allowing application of textbook information to case-based scenarios.

The pharmacotherapy issues that are most likely to be encountered during your exposure to pediatric medicine are covered in four sections:

  • Module 1: Neonatal Intensive Care
  • Module 2: Pediatric Intensive Care
  • Module 3: Pediatric In-Patient
  • Module 4: Pediatric Out-Patient

Pharmacy, nursing and medical students and residents often receive limited exposure to pediatric pharmacology during their education. As a result, providing medical care for a pediatric patient can be intimidating. This book provides a pharmacological resource to help prepare your for pediatric clinical experiences.


The book uses case studies to illustrate different pediatric ailments and their treatments in a variety of care settings. It is comprehensive in its representation of various settings and the pharmacotherapy for different maladies. It is unique in its format of providing questions and answers with explanation, but it could be improved by positioning the answers with explanations immediately following each set of questions, rather than at the end of each chapter. Overall, the book would benefit from an introductory chapter prior to the case studies.

Review about this edition:

Mar-2011, Doody’s Notes

“This book uses case studies to represent different aspects of pharmacotherapy for neonatal and pediatric patients in a variety of practice settings, followed by questions and answers with explanations. Application and Review of Pediatric Pharmacotherapy is a good pharmacotherapy review book for students who may be studying for board exams or wanting a supplemental study guide with comprehensive applied case studies. The second edition is justified because treatments have changed and new medications have been added since the publication of the first edition. “
