Editorial Reviews

Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: Melissa M. Ranieri, BS, PharmD (Temple University School of Pharmacy)
Description: The 22nd edition of one of the most respected and comprehensive references in the field of pharmacy for the past 100 years manages to balance the traditional aspects of pharmacy with the expanding needs of current clinical pharmacists.
Purpose: Remington covers all aspects of the science and practice of pharmacy, making it useful throughout one's pharmacy education and beyond. Pharmaceutical researchers as well as clinical specialists will find relevant chapters. This edition has undergone significant changes to maintain relevancy, adding new chapters organizing drug monographs for better accessibility.
Audience: Since the range of topics is so broad, this is a key reference for pharmacy students, researchers, pharmacists, and clinicians. Newer chapters are targeted to infectious disease, critical care, academic, and pediatric pharmacists. The information it includes will serve a variety of pharmacy professionals, including scientific researchers and pharmacy practice clinicians. There are hundreds of contributors, with backgrounds ranging from pharmaceutical preparation to therapeutic management.
Features: Volume I begins with several chapters on the fundamentals of pharmacy, including career paths, licensure, and the historical evolution of the field. Chapters on topics such as the drug approval process and pharmaceutical calculations are useful for students just learning as well as pharmacists looking to review these areas. Drug monographs are now organized at the end of volume I alphabetically instead of being split into several chapters as in previous editions, which allows for faster and easier searching. Information from Martindale: The Complete Drug Reference, 37th edition, Sweetman (Pharmaceutical Press, 2011), is also included in each monograph, providing international brand names; this is useful for drugs used throughout the world. New chapters in volume II cover consultant pharmacy, veterinary pharmacy, pediatric pharmacy, infectious diseases, and critical care pharmacy. This allows students and professionals who may be interested to learn more about opportunities to specialize. One of the caveats about using this reference is that because it covers many topics, it may be necessary to research additional literature for more detailed information. Perhaps it serves best as a basic reference for pharmacy professionals — a nice addition to one's library.
Assessment: This edition of Remington blends the more traditional aspects of pharmacy with current and clinical topics relevant to modern practice. A variety of information can be referenced in this book, including inorganic and organic pharmaceutical chemistry, drug monograph data, and information pertinent to today's clinical pharmacists. This edition succeeds at providing information for a variety of readers, including students, researchers, and clinicians alike.
