Rapid responses are electronic comments to the editor. They enable our users to debate issues raised in articles published on bmj.com. A rapid response is first posted online. If you need the URL (web address) of an individual response, simply click on the response headline and copy the URL from the browser window. A proportion of responses will, after editing, be published online and in the print journal as letters, which are indexed in PubMed. Rapid responses are not indexed in PubMed and they are not journal articles. The BMJ reserves the right to remove responses which are being wilfully misrepresented as published articles.
I agree with colin Bradley that this CDROM is not too good as a
source of detailed pharmacological information.
As a GP, I find the eBNF is a superb tool for checking rapidly on
drug doses and interactions and use it several times a day
One huge advantage over the printed text is the ability to MAGNIFY
the display. A high myope like me can set the default text to be easy to
read and I can increase the size more so that patients can read the
information easily as well. (I'm sure they believe information on the
screen more readily!)
