Review quote

Handbook on Injectable Drugs, 19th EditionBy: ASHP Doody s Review Services / January 5, 2017 Reviewer: Patrick J. McDonnell, PharmD (Temple University School of Pharmacy) Pharmacists who work with injectable drugs, especially those who work in hospitals, are certainly familiar with the Handbook on Injectable Drugs, published by ASHP since 1977. Sometimes referred to as "Trissel's," in reference to Lawrence A. Trissel, who has been a distinguished author of ASHP's first research on injectable drugs, this is one of the most valuable references on the compatibility and stability of injectable drugs. This edition updates the 2015 edition. The purpose is to provide one single, standardized source of primary research on the stability, compatibility, and incompatibilities of injectable drugs. Even in this age of, where pharmacists and nurses may look to online resources for injectable drug information, there is still something about the ease of having a complete reference at one's fingertips with the full text, which of course is fully referenced. (Incidentally, this title is also available as an online version or as an app for Android and iOS devices.) The audience is primarily pharmacists who are often called upon to provide stability and incompatibility information regarding the use of parenteral drugs. This can be useful for pharmacists who work in hospitals, home infusion companies, IV compounding facilities, or any facility that prepares and dispenses injectable drugs. The authors are primarily pharmacists and clinicians specializing in this area. This edition follows the traditional format of recent editions, now with over 360 drug monographs, alphabetized for easy reference. This edition adds 27 new injectable drug monographs, with more than 3,000 references supporting the information on stability, compatibility/incompatibility. Monographs highlight the products' administration, stability, compatibility (often with solutions and other drugs, hence also incompatibilities) and other specific drug information. Product information also may include the pH and osmolality of resultant solutions, sodium content (if applicable), and other specifics regarding injection/infusion of these drugs. This format has worked for over 40 years and still does. As a hospital pharmacist for over two decades, I have used other online resources, but still favor having the full print reference at my fingertips. When I work as a pharmacist, I can cross-reference two or more drugs just by double checking the monographs. I include this in my annual picks of core titles in pharmacy for Doody's Core Titles, and the current edition still meets the criteria for my recommendation. ----------------------------------------------------------- Weighted Numerical Score: 98 - 5 Stars! --Patrick J.
