When You Must Have The Latest IV Drug Information

King® Guide to Parenteral Admixtures®

The Standard in Injectable Drug Compatibilty Since 1971

IV Drug Compatibility & Stability

The King Guide to Parenteral Admixtures has provided the most up-to-date, complete and innovative injectable drug compatibility and stability information since 1971. As a 'standard' reference in hospital pharmacy worldwide, the King Guide is a proven, authoritative resource for pharmacists, nurses, physicians and other practitioners involved in the preparation and administration of intravenous drugs.

Peer-Reviewed, Evidence Based

We strive to include in King Guide to Parenteral Admixtures only that information that has been published in refereed journals or information that is provided by the manufacturer.

We believe that by using only data that have been reviewed by peers via the professional literature, we insure the accuracy of the content of King Guide.

Unpublished results that have not had the benefit of scholarly review is not adequate for us to use, and in our opinion other references that rely heavily upon unpublished results should give one cause for concern.
