It feels like a day doesnâ€™t go by that I donâ€™t receive an email letting me know of something cool for mobile devices. With the ever increasing onslaught of tablet and smartphone use in pharmacy practice itâ€™s only a matter of time before everything will be available in some electronic media format.
In this case itâ€™s ASHPâ€™s Interactive Handbook on Injectable Drugs: IV Decision Support by Lawrence A. Trissel. Every pharmacist working in a hospital pharmacy knows about this reference. And if they donâ€™t then they have a big problem because itâ€™s only one of the most definitive reference sources for IV compatibility. Over the course of my career itâ€™s simply been know as â€œthe Trisselâ€™sâ€. (kind of like â€œthe Talystâ€â€¦just sayinâ€™ â€“ private joke people)
Thereâ€™s a link in the ASHP web store leading to a â€œgetting started videoâ€, but I couldnâ€™t get the video to run. Little bit of a fail. Perhaps ASHPâ€™s never heard of YouTube. Who knows.
