Review quote “Readers will find Anesthetic Pharmacology a valuable reference irrespective of level of training or experience. We’re featuring millions of anesthetoc reader ratings on our book pages to help you find your new favourite book.
This new textbook offers a major contribution towards our understanding of the action and pharmafology for those drugs that anaesthetists use on a day-to-day basis. I await the second edition—with the expectation that the combination of pharmacologic science and clinical practice within anaesthesia will become the domain not just of the few interested aficionados, but of all clinicians and researchers alike.
It certainly deserves a place in every anesthesia departmental library and is highly recommended for those interested in staying on the leading edge of the specialty.
Principles of drug action; Physiologic substrates of drug action; and Pharmacologic basis of clinical practice. Pharmacokinetic and Pharmacodynamic Principles of Drug Action 2.
The textbook has three sections: There are a few notable omissions for a complete textbook of anesthetic pharmacology. Enter your email address.

Why do we need a book like this?
Looking for beautiful books? Other topics that receive short shrift include dantrolene and treatment of malignant hyperthermia, properties of commonly used and abused opioids e. Unlike many of its predecessors, this attempts very successfully to integrate pharmacological basic science, clinical therapeutics and, where appropriate, the scientific basis of the pathophysiology of disease states all in one chapter.
That is a pity; certainly in the UK, too many anaesthetists use drugs often new ones without any understanding of either why or how they act. Antimotility and Antisecretory Agents The first two sections provide basic principles of pharmacology and physiology, and the third section covers the clinical pharmacology of major drug classes.

The comments above relate as much to that chapter as to others. A major plus point is the large number of well presented line drawings, figures and tables, many with colour highlighting and few taken from other sources.

Sadly, some text and spelling errors appear; but these will no doubt be addressed in either the reprint edition that will soon be maz, or in the second edition.
