Editorial Reviews

David J. Dries
This is the first edition of a pocket handbook describing critical care drug administration in the adult patient. This is designed to be a pocket reference on drug therapy for use where rapid decisions are required prior to access to more extensive sources of data. The student, resident, or practitioner working in the intensive care unit or emergency department may use this handbook. Contributors are a senior pharmacist and physicians at the National Institutes of Health. Drug use is described according to area of interest. Contents begin with acute cardiac resuscitation followed by anesthesiology, cardiopulmonary critical care and other areas including renal, endocrine, nutrition, neurology and infectious disease. Also provided is a brief reference on allergy, poisoning, and drug monitoring. Resuscitation protocols represent current guidelines dating to within two years of publication. For the most part, the remainder of the book is without references. A detailed index is provided including generic and trade names. There is little discussion of pharmacokinetics and creatinine clearance, a key to drug administration, is discussed under aminoglycoside dosing. Type quality in figures and pagination is inconsistent. This is a worthwhile pocket reference for the student, house officer, and practitioner. An attractive addition is material on acute treatment of various types of poisoning. However, recent data on aminoglycoside dosing and new information on side effects of drugs including neuromuscular blockade have not been provided. Finally, the impact of various stress states on antibiotic and other medication use is not discussed. Specialty and disease organization is a positive feature ofthis handbook.
Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: David J. Dries, MD (University of Minnesota Medical School)
Description: This is the second edition of a critical care drug manual originating from the Cleveland Clinic and the National Institutes of Health.
Purpose: Provided is a quick reference for drug therapy intended for use when urgent decisions are required and time limits access to more extensive information sources.
Audience: The student or resident physician in the adult intensive care unit is an appropriate audience for this work. The authors represent major research and clinical centers of critical care medicine.
Features: Chapters include cardiopulmonary critical care, renal and endocrine disorders, gastroenterology, hematology, neurology, infections, and allergic considerations. A small amount of material is also included on monitoring drug therapy and various types of poisoning. Apart from the first chapter, which includes ACLS algorithms, other chapters include tables of three general kinds: therapy according to disease entity; drugs with indications; advantages, and disadvantages, and transition from intravenous to oral therapy. Three appendixes are also included, describing use of a specific list of intravenous medications and transition from intravenous to oral drug therapy. The table of contents is detailed, allowing rapid access to information in contained subject areas. Detail in the index has also been improved over the first edition. Resuscitation protocols represent current therapy. Only occasional references are provided, but citations are current and represent important work.
Assessment: This book has clearly been lengthened and improved over the first edition. Tables allowing transition from intravenous to oral therapy are an attractive addition. When combined with a complementary reference text, this handbook may prove a useful tool to the junior members of the ICU team.
