In The Press
"...the book is a quick guide to the use, admixture, administration, monitoring, storage, physical characteristics, and other clinical information for injectable medications. The tables are well organized and the information is easy to retrieve and follow...This is a quick and dirty, go-to book for information on the use of injectable medications. It is a handy, "just in case" reference (just in case you don't know how to mix or administer, or are unsure of the compatibility of a medication). This is a good reference."
