Handbook on Injectable Drugs, 18th Edition By ASHP __________________________________________________________ Doody s Review Services, June 6, 2015 [REVIEWER'S EXPERT OPINION] Patrick J McDonnell, Pharm.D.(Temple University School of Pharmacy) **Description** Now in its 18th edition, this is the quintessential reference for information on parenteral drug stability and compatibility. Published by ASHP (the American Society of Health-System Pharmacists), it is the most up-to-date book for this type of information. The previous edition was published in 2012 and is now out of date. **Purpose** The purpose is to provide those who prescribe, dispense/prepare, and administer parenteral medications the best information possible to optimize safe patient care. Recent news of unsafe and nonsterile compounding practices that have led to medication tragedies highlights more than ever the importance of a solid, fully referenced book on drug stability and compatibility. As a still practicing hospital pharmacist, I can't begin to count the number of times I have referenced this book to provide compatibility and stability information in response to nursing staff requests. **Audience** It is written for any healthcare provider directly dealing with parenteral medications. Obviously, pharmacists will find it of most value for the preparation of drugs and for providing information to nursing staff about compatibility of parenterals. First developed in 1977 by Lawrence A. Trissel, to this day the book is referred to as Trissel's. This edition, with over 2,900 references, is the gold standard reference on this topic. **Features** The book alphabetically lists the names of the products, information on administration routes, stability and storage requirements, compatibility information with other drugs (dependent upon concentration of the drug and other factors), and the designation of such compatibility. All of the information is fully referenced. **Assessment** I have been using this book for nearly 20 years, and as a hospital pharmacist I really can't imagine a department of pharmacy being without it. As the Editorial Review Group Chair in Pharmacy for Doody's, I have selected this as a Doody's Core Title. This is a necessary update - indeed, the publisher states that all previous editions are considered to be out of date. ----------------------------------------------------------- Weighted Numerical Score: 97 - 5 Stars! --Patrick J McDonnell, Pharm.D.(Temple University School of Pharmacy)"Doody Review Services" (07/06/2015)"show more
