Editorial Reviews

From The Critics
Reviewer: Jacqueline M Theodorou, Pharm.D.(Temple University School of Pharmacy)
Description: This book focuses on appropriate medication use for varying disease states, using mainly algorithms and tables.
Purpose: The purpose is to provide a pharmacotherapy reference that focuses on clinically relevant topics and frequently asked questions about medication management. The goal is not to provide every detail of these disease states (i.e. pathophysiology, etiology, etc.); rather, it is to present the information that is commonly required to provide the best patient care.
Audience: The intended audience includes medical and pharmacy students, as well as medical and pharmacy residents. It also would be helpful for the medical team and pharmacists, particularly those who round with the medical team (perhaps in internal medicine positions).
Features: The book focuses on 15 topics, ranging from gastroenterology to critical care. Each topic reviews appropriate medication management using treatment algorithms and answers frequently asked questions, such as patient-specific considerations, dose ranges, PK/PD, etc. The authors have done a great job of keeping the sections succinct and to the point. However, some of the tables are hard to read because of the black ink on blue-grey background and the small font. Additionally, some algorithms run on to the next page which can be confusing, since the tables and algorithms are exactly the same color. Extra blank pages in the back of the book could be used for notes, although they are not labeled as such — perhaps blank pages at the end of each section labeled "notes" would make more sense. Lastly, the index does not list any disease states, which makes it less than helpful. If I need to look up atrial fibrillation I cannot use the index to find it.
Assessment: This book has some great qualities, and I would recommend it to my fellow inpatient rounding pharmacists as a quick reference. We are continually asked questions on rounds about medical management, dosing information, and patient-specific variables. This book does a great job of answering those questions.
