    Purchased for my wife as a vital part of her Training to become a Midwife.used to understand medications used in the field of midwifery requested part of the NHS University course.Handy pocket size and fits perfectly in her scrub uniform and can be used as a quick guide reference.easy to use and read.A vital piece of kit for a student midwife or someone refreshing the training.

    perfect for all student midwives and qualified When it arrived it was so small I thought I was going to be disappointed, not so Used it to complete my drugs log for my portfolio, gives information on each drugs safety in pregnancy and safety in breast feeding Light weight so you can keep it in your pocket at work placement.

    Majority of medications used today are not in the book super disappointing when I go to look something up quicky and its not there for example, nothing on oxycodone, endone and targin which are used daily on the ward several oxytocics missing, and none of the current antacids other than ranitidine its also a shame that it doesnt state administration in terms of compatible fluids, slow push etc I have to hunt down the IV drug book on the ward anyway.
