Does anyone else pull out their Trissel’s IV Compatibility during a code when you’re running over five meds on two lines?!? Oh wait jk, the tiny 22 on the left hand just burst! Can someone start a central line so I don’t have to choose which life-saving drips need to be paused?!!!! I also like the calculators and drug-drug interactions tool on the app.
This is my Holy Grail! I start all my medical and pharmaceutical searches here. I often find myself jumping around from link to link gathering all the knowledge I can. I like how off-label indications are listed on UpToDate and I can click the link to the clinical trial, case report or drug study to determine if the patient meets certain off-label criteria for safe medication usage. We’ve all worked with that one physician that always orders medication for an off-label indication you never even knew existed. My favorite is when they leave love notes for pharmacy aka “off-label indication, pharmacy don’t change”. Hi, I’m Pharmacy.
The activity spectra is very helpful when you are trying to recommend antibiotic therapy. I often refer to this app when patients have multiple allergies or cultures need to be interpreted. It’s also helpful to have a second reference to compare antibiotic therapy instead of just using UpToDate.
