In fact, nine out of ten doctors consider PDR their
most important reference source. The 59th edition is
more than 3,000 pages—our most comprehensive edition
The 2005 PDR also includes important information on

Anesthetists, and Clinical Nurse Specialists in
full-time patient practice and medical students and
residents) can access:
