Top Pediatric Prescriptions

Children between the ages of 1 and 12 years metabolize medications in a manner distinct from adults. As such, there are a number of anatomical and physiological factors that the nurse practitioner must take into account in order to safely prescribe and administer medications in the pediatric population.

“Top Pediatric Medications” will aid the nurse practitioner in making pediatric pharmacology decisions with increased confidence. The presentation begins with an overview of concepts pertinent to pediatric medications, including a discussion of factors unique to pediatric pharmacology and the top 20 drugs prescribed for children. It then defines common pediatric conditions and provides detailed information on the treatment plans and medications available for those conditions, including signs and symptoms that warrant specific regimens, age-specific dosage information, first-line choices and alternatives, resistance and recurrence issues, and more. This session also contains a detailed discussion of pediatric pain medications.

Use this session to boost your knowledge, and keep it in your archives as a reference tool for your practice. The pediatric treatment regimens for the following conditions are covered:

  • Ear infections
  • Asthma
  • Depression
  • Schizophrenia
  • Psychosis

Asthma and Respiratory Illnesses in Children: Pharmacotherapy

The incidence of asthma increases every year in the United States, and pediatric treatment guidelines are intricate and must be tailored to each patient’s needs. This CE session will prepare you for any pediatric asthma case by providing you with the most up-to-date information on severity assessment and triggers, enabling you to provide the best stepwise pharmacologic care. Management guidelines for viral infections and pediatric pneumonias are discussed, as well as other care guidelines for patients with cystic fibrosis. After completing this session, you will be able to form smart diagnoses and execute the most efficient methods of care.

This presentation includes information on the following topics, in addition to asthma:

  • Influenza and immunization guidelines
  • Administration of long- and short-acting beta agonists for asthma management
  • Management of pharyngitis and sinusitis

Pharmacologic Management of Common Immune and Allergic Conditions in Children

Many pediatric immune and allergic conditions can be successfully managed through proper administration of pharmacologic agents. “Pharmacologic Management of Common Immune and Allergic Conditions in Children” takes a deep dive into the current medical knowledge and prescribing practices regarding these agents.

This presentation provides a refresher on the definition, cause, incidence, and presentation of several allergic or immune pediatric conditions and is specially designed to provide thorough, research- and practice-backed recommendations for each condition’s corresponding pharmacologic regimens. You will learn the ins and outs of stepwise treatment for asthma and be able to compare and contrast distinct drug regimens for a variety of other pediatric allergic or immune ailments. This session will also guide you through dosing and safety details, biological mechanisms of illness, special considerations for disease treatment, emerging guidelines, and more.

Pharmacologic regimens for the following conditions are included in this presentation:
