Critical Care Clinicians can use general drug references (Micomedex, Lexicomp) for data on dosing of high-alert medications in special patient populations but these references are not available to all healthcare clinicians, they are expensive and they are not specific to high-alert medications or critically ill patients. Doctors, nurses and pharmacists in the hospital setting will benefit from having one resource with all of this information. The purpose of this reference manual would be to guide critical care clinicians on dosing of high-alert medications in special patient populations. The most important feature of the book will be a summary of primary literature using tables when possible. This will be useful to readers because currently a reference book does not exist that guides clinicians in these difficult dosing decisions.

Bernard Rosner's FUNDAMENTALS OF BIOSTATISTICS is a practical introduction to the methods, techniques, and computation of statistics with human subjects. It prepares students for their future courses and careers by introducing the statistical methods most often used in medical literature. Rosner minimizes the amount of mathematical formulation (algebra-based) while still giving complete explanations of all the important concepts. As in previous editions, a major strength of this book is that every new concept is developed systematically through completely worked out examples from current medical research problems.
