DynaMed® is a clinical information resource used by physicians to answer clinical questions quickly and
easily at the point of care. In this tutorial, you will learn about the key DynaMed features, such as basic
searching, recently-updated content, and obtaining Continuing Medical Education credit for your searches.
We’ll begin by conducting a basic search for “coronary artery disease.” As you enter your terms in the
search box, DynaMed topics matching your terms appear below. Select a DynaMed topic from the
displayed list or click Search to view all results.
You may also choose to browse DynaMed alphabetically by clicking a letter below the Search box.
On the results screen, click Coronary artery disease (CAD) to access this topic, or simply hover your
pointer over the title to preview all of the topic sections in the right column. When available, you can change
the text size by clicking on the text icons in the upper right hand corner.
Sections can be expanded further by clicking the plus icon to the left of each title. Or you can view
each topic with a specific section expanded by clicking the section title.
When viewing the topic, access a persistent link to the record by clicking on the persistent link icon
found in the right column of the screen, located below the print and e-mail icons. To view the individual
sections within the record, click on the desired section. Here, we will click on Treatment.
All treatment information and subsections are displayed. To collapse the Treatment section, click
Treatment again. If enabled by your administrator, you can receive Continuing Medical Education
credit for your search. Click Get CME for this Topic, fill out the form in the resulting pop-up window,
and click Submit.
Search within the text of a topic by entering a term in the Search Within Text field and clicking the
magnifying glass icon. All instances of your term available in the topic are highlighted in yellow. You
can also create an alert to be notified when the topic is updated. Simply click the Alert icon found in
the right column. Select an alert frequency, enter your e-mail address and click Create Alert.
If your organization subscribes to other EBSCO medical full text databases, and has configured them in
DynaMed, you have access to related search results from those resources in the right column of the
DynaMed result list. To read a topic from another EBSCO medical database, click on a title.
The topic is displayed in DynaMed. Click the Result List link to navigate back to the result list.
DynaMed topics are updated daily. To view the most recent updates, click the Recent Updates link in the
top toolbar.
Updates are displayed with the most current update at the top. Each topic lists an update reason,
indicating the nature of the update. To access the updated topic, click the hyperlinked name.
Updates can be filtered by specialty area. Click the Limit by Category drop down menu and select a
specialty. You can also limit Recent Updates to updates that are flagged as practice-changing by clicking
the Practice Changing Updates Only check box. Practice-changing updates are those added to
DynaMed which may lead a clinician to change practice patterns or medical decisions.
DynaMed includes over 1,000 drug topics. Enter a drug name in the Search box and click Search. On the
result list, click a drug name to access the DynaMed topic for the drug. As demonstrated previously, you
can hover your pointer over a result to preview the Drug topic sections in the right column.
Click on the title of a section to expand it. Or expand or collapse all sections at the same time by clicking
on the Expand All or Collapse All links found at the top of the result list. If a warning is present for a
drug topic, it will be opened automatically when the topic is displayed.
You can return to the home screen by clicking the link found at the top of the screen.
If the Search Other Services feature is enabled by your administrator, you can access links to
other resources and websites directly from the DynaMed home page.
At any time, you can click on the Help link to view the complete online Help system.
