Burlington, MA (PRWEB) November 14, 2011
Tarascon Publishing,® an Imprint of Jones & Bartlett Learning, is pleased to announce the release of the Tarascon Pocket Pharmacopoeia 2012 Classic Shirt Pocket Edition, in its 26th edition.
The Tarascon Pocket Pharmacopoeia has been a trusted and relied upon source of portable drug information since 1987. Available in both print and digital formats, it is carried in essentially every medical bookstore in the United States, Canada and around the world. The Pocket Pharmacopoeia is an essential tool for prescribers at any level including residents, interns and medical students. We also have a strong following with pharmacists, nurses, physician assistants, nurse practitioners, dentists and medical transcriptionists.
In an Annals of Internal Medicine survey, the Pocket Pharmacopoeia tied with the stethoscope as the most essential item in resident physicians' white coat pockets, with 97% rating the reference as either "very useful" or "essential."
Every edition of the Pocket Pharmacopoeia is meticulously peer-reviewed by experts and is now available in multiple formats. It details typical drug dosing, available trade and generic formulations, metabolism, safety in pregnancy and lactation, relative drug pricing information, Canadian trade names, and an herbal & alternative therapies section. Multiple tables supplement the drug content, including opioid equivalency, emergency drug infusions, cardiac dysrhythmia protocols, pediatric drug dosing, and much more. The Tarascon Pocket Pharmacopoeia 2012 Classic includes updated drug content, new figures and tables and black box warning indications.
In addition to the 2012 Classic Shirt Pocket Edition, there are several other versions available in the Pharmacopoeia family. The Tarascon Pharmacopoeia 2012 Deluxe Lab-Coat Edition contains additional drugs, expanded forms section and off-label indications. The Pharmacopoeia Mobile Apps, available for iPhone/iPad, Android and BlackBerry are based off of the information found in the Deluxe Edition as well as a drug interaction tool, additional interactive calculators and weekly content updates. The Tarascon Pharmacopoeia 2012 Professional Desk Reference Edition is printed in a larger format as well as larger type and contains adverse effects and mechanism of action. Both the Deluxe and Professional Editions will be available later this month. Please visit our website to pre-order your copy today.
