An essential reference text, the fifth edition of this popular book details drugs in anaesthesia and intensive care in an A-Z format. The book describes the pharmacokinetics and pharmacodynamics of all the drugs commonly used by anaesthetists. The A-Z organisation allows rapid access to specific information on the properties and characteristics of almost 200 drugs.
The new edition includes a complete revision of all the featured drugs, and the addition of key new drugs. New diagrams of particular drug structures and comparison tables aid comparison of differences within a drug class for exam revision. Improved navigation in the index enables prompt discoverability of information.
Written in a concise, bullet-point style to allow quick access to information, the book contains all necessary drug references for anaesthetists in training, consultant anaesthetists, intensive care nurses, and anaesthetic assistants.
