Constantly expanding, ASHP’s Handbook on Injectable Drugs, 18th Edition™, is now newly updated with the latest information.
With its 37-year track record for covering vast amounts of data with precise, accurate detail, nothing else comes close for compatibility, stability, storage, and preparation of parenteral drugs.
The 18th edition brings together information on parenteral drugs available in the United States and in other countries in 338 drug monographs. About 50% of the monographs have been revised and updated for this edition to include new drugs, expanded and updated stability and compatibility information, more specific referencing of manufacturer information, and other enhancements.
While primary, peer-reviewed literature remains a major source of compatibility and stability information, beginning with this edition ongoing efforts have been initiated to provide increased specificity of references to the pharmaceutics research of drug manufacturers. Other relevant information and pertinent study details supplied by corresponding authors of the published literature also have been incorporated into this edition.
All formats of ASHP’s Interactive Handbook on Injectable Drugs™ have been further enhanced and now include regular electronic updates, Food and Drug Administration (FDA) MedWatch notices, drug shortages information, wall-chart custom views of compatibility information, and other features.
Also new to digital versions is the addition of concisely formatted beyond-use dating recommendations for parenteral drugs and nutritional solutions from ASHP’s Extended Stability for Parenteral Drugs by Bing and Nowobilski-Vasilios. This extended stability information is specifically designed for use in home and other infusion practices. The Interactive Handbook is available online and as an app for iOS, and Android.
Whether in print, online, or on your smartphone or tablet, the Handbook on Injectable Drugs continues to be the “Gold Standard” for injectable drug compatibility and is a must-have resource.
