Health, age, and body process; care of the aged; and handling medications are discussed in unit 3. Selected medications for the major body systems are the subject of the eight modules constituting the fourth unit. Unit 5 contains four modules devoted to medications for such special problems as inflammation, infection, and immunity; nutritional deficiencies; allergies; malignant deseases; and mental and emotional stress. The final unit covers the following techniques involved in the administration of medication: preparation and administration of oral medications; count schedules to establish accuracy of supply; application of topical medication; instilling ear, eye, and nasal medication; and inserting rectal or vaginal suppositories.
