Lexi-Comp, Inc., a provider of clinical information to the healthcare industry, has added direct PubMed linking to Lexi-Comp ONLINE. Subscribers can now link directly to abstracts of the primary literature from the References field of monographs within this Web-based application. This enhancement allows clinicians to more quickly and effectively research information impacting patient care.
PubMed, a service of the U.S. National Library of Medicine, includes over 18 million citations from MEDLINE and other life science journals. PubMed includes links to full text articles and other related resources.
This linking is available within Lexi-Comp's core drug databases, Lexi-Drugs® and Pediatric Lexi-Drugs®.
Lexi-Drugs includes content that addresses all patient populations and covers clinical specialties such as cardiology, infectious disease, oncology, psychiatry, anesthesiology, and others. Monographs include up to 67 fields of information, such as Adverse Reactions, Drug Interactions, Contraindications, Dosing, Medication Safety Issues, Pharmacodynamics and Kinetics, and Special Alerts (including FDA boxed warnings).
Pediatric Lexi-Drugs® is designed for situations where pediatric dosing information is required and contains guidelines that have been researched and compiled by pediatric specialists. The database includes over 820 pediatric-sensitive drug monographs with detailed dosing guidelines for neonates, infants, and children.
In addition to these core drug databases, Lexi-Comp has added PubMed linking to databases that cover geriatric medications, infectious diseases, pharmacogenomics, lab and diagnostics, and natural products, all of which are accessible within Lexi-Comp ONLINE.
