9780340551714: Pharmacology in the Practice of Anaesthesia

'Pharmacology in the Practice of Anaesthesia' outlines, in a highly-accessible manner, the principles of pharmacology as applied to anaesthesia and intensive care. Anaesthetists are expected to know not only the pharmacology of anaesthetic agents, but also the pharmacology of drugs used in medical disorders and the possibility of drug interactions and side effects.

The book contains introductory chapters covering the principles which affect the mode of action of the drug. These are followed by detailed descriptions of anaesthetic agents and the drugs affecting each body system. Relevant physiology is included to make the pharmacology more comprehensible, and key points are highlighted throughout the text.
