Doody's Review ServiceReviewer: Vincent F Carr, DO, MSA, FACC, FACP (Uniformed Services University of the Health Sciences)
Description: This is one of many such books which are reissued each year as quick references for use during rounds.
Purpose: The purpose is to provide a medication reference clinicians can keep in their lab coat pocket during rounds to save them time getting to the information they need when the larger references may not be readily available.
Audience: This can be used by every type of clinician, although it assumes a certain amount of pre-existing medical knowledge to navigate.
Features: Although it cannot be relied upon as a single reference for all information concerning a medication, this pocket guide does give a reasonable abbreviated summary of what a clinician should remember when prescribing or reviewing a patient's medication history that may include a medicine the clinician is not very familiar with.
Assessment: Organized alphabetically by generic name, this pocket guide presents a tremendous amount of information on some 1,000 medications in a compact format.
