Editorial Reviews

Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: Nima Patel, PharmD (Temple University School of Pharmacy)
Description: As the title implies, this is a quick reference for pharmacists to commonly used equations, algorithms, schedules, drug interactions, and other guideline-based therapies.
Purpose: The set of laminated cards is to be used on rounds or outpatient clinics as a quick reference tool. Since pharmacists need to know equations and normal serum concentrations offhand, this will be useful to have in a coat pocket.
Audience: It is designed primarily for pharmacy students and residents who are starting on rotations. Although it also can be useful for practicing clinical pharmacists, seasoned pharmacists most likely would know most of this.
Features: Useful features include the 10-year Framingham risk, patient history checklist, aminoglycoside nomogram, and drug-drug or drug-herb interactions. The guidelines are great additions, but they can become outdated once new guidelines are issued, so students and resident need to be aware of any changes.
Assessment: This is certainly a unique tool that can be useful for students and residents who are starting rotations and it is priced appropriately. The drawback is that guidelines and algorithms can quickly become outdated. Also, because this is a set of hole-punched cards on a single ring, there is the possibility that individual cards can tear and be lost.
