This series provides a straightforward and comprehensive reference source for anesthesiologists and students alike. Volume I: Pharmacology reviews all aspects of pharmacological principles, with an emphasis on how those principles relate to the basic practice of anesthesiology.
The text classifies an array of drugs and profiles their actions on various systems in the body. It includes an explanation of adverse reactions and contraindications, as well as the use of certain drugs in unusual circumstances. The whole series is targeted to anesthesiologists and those in training in the field, but pharmacologists could also benefit from the knowledge presented so clearly here.
