Consistency Counts

2024 is the 53rd year that the King® Guide to Parenteral Admixtures® has been the leading source of the most up-to-date IV drug compatibility and stability information in hospital pharmacy practice worldwide.  In those 53 years, Dr. James King and Dr. Patrick Catania have been the only editors of the King Guide and have made carefully crafted updates every quarter using painstaking and time-tested methods for data collection and reporting. No other references can claim this kind of consistency in information compilation.

Well Informed Decisions

Drug safety, improved patient outcomes, ensuring compliance and eliminating costly errors have always been our top priorities. Using the latest technology and a consistent editorial team benefits practitioners' ability to analyze continuously updated information without sacrificing convenience and mobility.

Peer Reviewed, Evidence Based

We strive to include in the King® Guide to Parenteral Admixtures® only that information which has been published in peer reviewed and refereed journals or information that is provided by the manufacturer. We believe that by using only data that have been reviewed 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 Unpublished results that have not had the benefit of scholarly review are inadequate and other references that rely heavily on unpublished results should be scrutinized cautiously.

Winter 2023

In this update we added a new monograph for SULBACTAM AND DURLOBACTAM.

We also added new stability information to the monographs for OMADACYCLINE.

New compatibility information was added for SULBACTAM AND DURLOBACTAM in combination with 95 different drugs.
