Editorial Reviews

Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: Paul A. Sobotka, MD (Loyola University Stritch School of Medicine)
Description: This is a pharmaceutical reference designed for the practicing physician. Each drug page includes text on the approved indications, particularly dangerous side effects of the drug or drug class, official contraindications, known drug interactions and adverse effects, and the recommendations of dosing based on the manufacturer's FDA approval and the authors' clinical experience.
Purpose: The authors' objectives are not to improve the depth or breadth of pharmacological information available, but rather, to improve access to important prescribing information. To the practicing physician who has grappled with the obtuse organization and small print of the PDR, this goal is laudable, and this book clearly succeeds in this goal.
Audience: It is intended for practitioners who prescribe or encounter cardiovascular pharmaceuticals and have need for rapid and reliable information. The presentation of information will facilitate patient care and could eliminate the frequently frustrating efforts to look up drug details in traditional references.
Features: Important clinical information on drugs commonly used in clinical practice is clearly presented, easily found, and well written. Clever use of font, color, and summary tables enhance the presentation.
Assessment: The principal value of this text rests with its novel and unique presentation, which makes it easy for the practicing clinician to access important prescribing information. The authors promise to update the reference text regularly. The value of this text will be significantly modified as the prescribing physician encounters increasing restricted formulary in managed care, and inclusion of "therapeutic exchanges equivalents" may be valuable. Also, as an increasing cadre of physicians use personal computers for patient care, the current presentation could be easily altered into a PC version. This book could certainly be a resource to the busy clinician who needs rapid and convenient pharmaceutical information.
