Editorial Reviews

Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: Vincent F Carr, DO, MSA, FACC, FACP (Uniformed Services University of the Health Sciences)
Description: This companion to the well-known Tarascon Pharmacopoeia likewise is an outstanding book covering the essentials that one can carry in a pocket for instant reference. It is every bit as helpful as its companion.
Purpose: The purpose is to provide a readily available point-of-care guide and memory jogger for the most common procedures encountered in practice. The book is one of the best for completeness and, as the author points out, the only one of its kind that fits in a shirt pocket.
Audience: The book is designed for those who are trained to and routinely perform various procedures in the outpatient office or intensive care unit of an inpatient facility. The author is a highly experienced clinician.
Features: The book consists mainly of very well-drawn diagrams accompanied by relevant text in a bulleted format to conserve space. I usually prefer photographs, but in this instance the diagrams are very well done and are tremendously helpful. The information is well organized, complete and, where applicable, includes the procedure CPT Code for billing purposes. The Tarascon series of books are also available as iPhone Apps.
Assessment: I highly recommend this book for house staff and students on clinical rotations. It has tremendous teaching value for those just beginning their careers and provides students an outstanding perspective about what the attending physicians are doing at a time when they have not yet formed the mental images that they will need in the future.
