Editorial Reviews

Julie Hosley
The authors of this small handbook offer prompt access to drug names, general indications, dosages, and forms. The text and its contents are updated annually to address rapidly expanding pharmacological needs. The book is designed to be a quick reference to the most prescribed drugs for healthcare professionals who need a brief reminder. The objective is admirably met in this latest edition. The authors have worked through seven editions, improving and expanding the resource each year. The text is appropriately written for any healthcare professional who needs a brief reference to general drug information. The information is vital to busy practitioners at all levels. The text includes an extensive list of drugs by generic and trade names with a very brief description, including forms and dosages. There is an excellent section on sound-alike drug names that is particularly valuable for the transcriptionist. Drug names include proper capitalization of trade versus generic brands. Through evolving editions, the authors have addressed and eliminated any deficiencies in earlier editions. The authors suggest using the companion text Drake's Saunders Pharmaceutical XRef Book 2000 (WB Saunders, 2000) in which street slang and Investigational Codes are covered, and which contains cross references between generic drugs and brands that contain them. The companion text also includes 3000 hazardous material and their potential dangers. No office or medical setting should be without this guide to support, but not replace, more extensive but less accessible drug information. This text should be as well-received as the previous editions.

This book contains an alphabetical listing of the names of drugs: brand, generic, and investigational. There are 23,832 entries in the 1996 edition. The book was first published in 1993. The purpose is to provide the medical transcriptionist with an easy-to-use reference for the correct names of drugs (brand and generic), with a brief description of the drug's use and dosage form. Although intended for medical transcriptionists, this reference can be used by any healthcare professional whose work may require them to recognize or be familiar with drug names (such as ward clerks, medical assistants, or technicians). It may also be of use to nurses and students in health professions. The book contains an alphabetical listing of brand and generic drug names and investigational drugs. Some foreign drugs are included in the book. The listing is cross-referenced making it easy to find the brand and generic names of an individual drug. Each generic/brand name entry also includes the dosage form, strengths, usual route of administration of the drug, and whether it is prescription or nonprescription. Drugs that have been discontinued within the past few years are so indicated. Combination agents include a list of ingredients. Drugs that are considered sound-alikes are also cross-referenced, with a list of sound alike names included. Listings of investigational code names and the most commonly prescribed drugs are also included. This can be a useful reference for individuals who need to be familiar with drug names, especially those who need to transcribe records or other information from handwritten or recorded notes. It can also be useful for nurses, students, pharmacy technicians, ormedical assistants.

This is a useful second edition reference book on pharmaceutical drugs and drug-related terms. It lists drug names by generic, trade, and chemical names. The drug usage is also provided. The purpose is to provide correct spelling and capitalization of drug names, along with cross references of brand names, generic names, chemical names, and drug usage information. It provides basic information that may be needed for any type of health field related to recording, writing, or transcribing. Information provided in this reference book could be used by any student in a health-care related field or by anyone needing an easy, quick reference for drug names, spelling, and usage. Medical transcriptionists, medical record personnel, ward clerks, nurses, and legal secretaries would find this book very useful. All entries in this book are in alphabetical order and are typed in bold print, making them easy to locate. Drug names are listed by trade, generic, and chemical names. Uses of the drugs are provided, along with some methods of administration. Included in the appendixes are a listing of experimental and investigational drugs along with their codes, a listing of chemotherapy drugs and their protocols, and a list of orphan drugs. Another useful feature is a list of common prescribing abbreviations. This is a very useful and easy-to-use reference book that would be very helpful to any student or employee in a health-related field, such as medical transcribers or quality assessment or medical records personnel, who need this type of information on pharmaceutical drugs or terms. I think it would be beneficial also to nurses, nursing students, ward clerks, and medical assistants.
