Critical Care Trauma Centre (CCTC) Medication Manual
The monographs that are included in this CCTC Medication Manual represent summaries of the pharmacology and side effects of drugs that are used in Adult Critical Care. The monographs contain pertinent clinical information but are not comprehensive documents. They are to be used in conjunction with clinical expertise and judgment. This Manual has been designed for use in the CCTC at London Health Sciences Centre (LHSC), London, Ontario, Canada, and represents clinical practice at this institution. The information contained within the Manual may not be applicable for other centres and is not to be shared or duplicated without permission.
As for previous editions, the available literature and clinical experience have been used to develop the monographs. Every effort has been made to ensure that monographs remain accurate and current. However, the user should be aware that while attempts are made to keep the Manual updated, LHSC does not guarantee that individual monographs represent the ‘up to the minute’ latest information.
If users of this Manual are not familiar with a drug, it is recommended that the official monograph be consulted before it is prescribed and administered. Any user of this information is advised that the contributors, Editor and LHSC are not responsible for any errors or omissions, and / or any consequences arising from the use of the information in this Manual.
I have read this disclaimer and would like to proceed to the Drug Monograph Index.
