Description: This book attempted to combine Drug Therapy Pocket, Endres et al. (Borm Bruckmeier, 2003) which contains overviews of treatment for common diagnoses, and Drug Pocket: Clinical Reference Guide, by Russ (Borm Bruckmeier, 2004), which contains drug information such as dosage forms, common brand names, etc.
Purpose: The purpose is to have a concise pocket reference that contains important drug information, as well as treatment options and, where applicable, step care for common diseases. There is also a chapter on oncologic therapies.
Audience: This pocket reference should be useful for any practitioners once they become accustomed to the format.
Features: A total of 16 chapters cover by system the available drugs and therapies for specific diagnoses. There are also chapters on emergency drugs and toxicology. There are very few omissions; one example is tiotropium, which has come into common use in 2004.
Assessment: The authors had an ambitious goal to provide a lot of information in a small book necessitating a rather small font type. Nevertheless, many will find it useful as the one reference of its type covering all subspecialty areas.
Rating: 3 Stars from Doody --Doody Review Services, Sally Ling, M.D. (University of Missouri-Kansas City School of Medicine
