1. Pharmacology Review – A Comprehensive Reference Guide for Medical, Nursing, and Paramedic Students
Author: by M. Mastenbjörk M.D.
Pharmacology doesn’t have to be hard! Here’s why:At Medical Creations, we are firm believers of the notion that the best way to learn a new topic is first to understand the fundamentals. Once you know the fundamentals, you will be able to understand the bigger picture.
If you don’t understand the bigger picture, forcing yourself to memorize any details becomes that much harder. Our Pharmacology book is meant to give you a good understanding of the topic before you can dive into the details with other, more extensive pharmacology books.
The goal is to have you understand rather than memorize. It’s a great alternative to the thicker and more expensive pharmacology books if you are studying for an exam and you just want a quick recap, or if you are just starting out and you want an overview.
The purpose of this pharmacology book is to serve as a reference manual and a comprehensive study guide for medical, nursing, and paramedic students. For easy understanding of this complex subject, the book has been divided into multiple units based on each body system.
2. Deep Medicine: How Artificial Intelligence Can Make Healthcare Human Again
Author: by Eric Topol MD
One of America’s top doctors reveals how AI will empower physicians and revolutionize patient care Medicine has become inhuman, to disastrous effect. The doctor-patient relationship-the heart of medicine-is broken: doctors are too distracted and overwhelmed to truly connect with their patients, and medical errors and misdiagnoses abound.
In Deep Medicine, leading physician Eric Topol reveals how artificial intelligence can help. AI has the potential to transform everything doctors do, from notetaking and medical scans to diagnosis and treatment, greatly cutting down the cost of medicine and reducing human mortality.
By freeing physicians from the tasks that interfere with human connection, AI will create space for the real healing that takes place between a doctor who can listen and a patient who needs to be heard. Innovative, provocative, and hopeful, Deep Medicine shows us how the awesome power of AI can make medicine better, for all the humans involved.

Author: by Angelo E. Volandes
In this “enlightening” (Jane Brody, New York Times) book, Harvard Medical School physician Angelo E. Volandes offers a solution to traumatic end-of-life care: talking, medicine’s oldest tool. There is an unspoken dark side of American medicine-keeping patients alive at any price.
Two thirds of Americans die in healthcare institutions, tethered to machines and tubes at bankrupting costs, even though research shows that most prefer to die at home in comfort, surrounded by loved ones.Dr. Angelo E. Volandes believes that a life well lived deserves a good ending.
Through the stories of seven patients and seven very different end-of-life experiences, he demonstrates that what people with a serious illness, who are approaching the end of their lives, need most is not new technologies but one simple thing: The Conversation.
He argues for a radical re-envisioning of the patient-doctor relationship and offers ways for patients and their families to talk about this difficult issue to ensure that patients will be at the center and in charge of their medical care.

13. Heckman's Nursing Pharmacology Simplified
Author: by David Heckman PharmD
Pharmacology is a notoriously difficult subject, particularly in nursing school where students must speed through the entire subject in just one semester. Despite the lack of time spent on the subject, the importance of pharmacology cannot be overstated. As we all know, medication errors can kill.
What makes pharmacology such a difficult subject? The sheer volume of information and lack of readily apparent connections. Shortly after initial exposure to pharmacology, students enter survival mode which means they do their best to ascertain what will be on the exam and then focus all of their time and energy on memorizing that information.
This is a mediocre short-term strategy and a horrible long-term strategy. Heckman’s Nursing Pharmacology Simplified is here to help. Rather than overwhelm you with seemingly random lists of facts and acronyms, we carefully select key information and present it in a way that is logical and easy to digest.
We emphasize core themes and focus on helping you make lasting connections. To ensure brevity and clarity, we tackle pharmacology one drug class at a time and limit the information to one page per drug class. The result is an extraordinarily high-impact pharmacology review.
