It lets you quickly locate the drug details you need, such as a correct spelling and capitalization, corresponding uses, cross references of brand names to generics, and the usual methods of administration (e.g., capsule, IV, cream).

Over 28,000 brand-name and generic drugs are profiled, including in vitro testing kits, radiographic contrast and other imaging agents, and wound dressings.

Appendices offer useful information at a glance, including the most prescribed drugs, a list of sound-alikes, therapeutic drug levels, and abbreviations used with medications and dosages.
Information written by and for medical transcriptionists eliminates unneeded information to save you time in correctly determining the drug being transcribed and confirming related information.
