About this book

Although there are many pharmacology texts, and electronic sources of drug information relating to GI disorders, they are frequently encyclopedic, and practical information can be difficult to find. In Pocket Handbook of GI Pharmacotherapeutics, George Wu and Achilles Pappano create a text that combines the current treatment protocols and practical pharmacological information of prominent GI disorders for the first time. Chapters are disease specific, and contain treatment algorithms and therapy guides that present all the essential information in a compact, easy to reference handbook. The text contains practical clinical information in a highly accessible format, including keys for relative costs and the FDA pregnancy rating system for drug safety. Informative and unique, Pocket Handbook of GI Pharmacotherapeutics is a must have reference for any internist, gastroenterologist or general practioner who endeavors to provide better treatment of their patients.

Reviews

From the reviews:

“This soft cover, small pocket handbook provides instant access for the practicing gastroenterologist to therapeutic regimens for various gastrointestinal disorders. The book is small and … could easily be placed in a physician’s jacket. … highly valuable for the very busy practitioner who has limited time to peruse through large textbooks. … the book will likely be highly valued by many physicians and … is recommended as an essential contribution to everyday practice.” (Ronnie Fass, Practical Gastroenterology, August, 2009)
