This set of 369 PharMnemonics cards is finally printed in full colors and put in a box!
It is carefully designed to make medical pharmacology fun to learn and easy to memorize.
First of all, major drug names or class stems are linked to drug actions with mnemonics,
humor and illustrations. This turns a "clueless" drug name into a vivid visual cue for easy
recall of drug actions and quick recognition of drug classification. Secondly, along with the
action-linked visual mnemonics, mechanisms of action are explained sufficiently with
detailed diagrams. Thirdly, drug uses, interactions and side effects are summarized
concisely in an outline format and ALSO made memorable with numerous mnemonics and
illustrations. Finally, some key points of drugs are presented with tables and even
highlighted with Dr. Bright's Hint, a special mnemonic form mostly expressed as a brief
conversation. Organized systematically, each topic starts with an overview card that has a
list of drugs on the front and an integrated diagram illustrating the sites of action on the
back. This provides the reader a comprehensive yet clear big picture for drug classification
and rationales of drug therapy.
It is updated with the latest drugs and drug classes, such as targeted cancer therapy,
anti-HCV drugs, SGLT2 inhibitors for treating type II diabetes mellitus and PCSK-9 inhibitors
for hypercholesterolemia. Also, it has an appendix listing commonly used trade names.
This set of PharMnemonics cards is intended to serve as an excellent memory aid in
medical pharmacology review, either for the courses or the board exams. It is suitable for
anyone who wants to learn and memorize medical pharmacology with ease and fun.
