The author has worked to ensure that all information in this book concerning drug dosages, scheduled, and routed of administration is accu-rate as of the time of publication and consistent with standards set by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration and the general medical community. As medical research and practice advance, however, therapeutic standards may change. For this reason and because human and mechanical errors sometimes occur, we recommend that readers follow the advice of a physi-cain who is directly involved in their care or the care of a member of their family.
