Sleep

by

Review of Health Assessment for Nursing Practice by Susan F. Wilson and Jean Foret Giddens.

I liked the chapter on Sleep. It was a good review and update. I liked that is was short and direct. The interactive exercises were lacking in drug interventions. There are so many drugs for sleep ranging from Benadryl to, dare I say, Propofol! Although, I am familiar with the common drugs of Ambien, Lunesta, or Soma. I think I would be much better served to know the drug/drug/alcohol/OTC interactions are. Well, we hope our patients aren’t deviating from their prescribed course of treatment, but we should be highly aware of the risk for potential knowledge deficit and abuse. Somnolently Yours.
