Pharmacology in Anesthesia Practice 1st Edition

Pharmacology in Anesthesia Practice 1st Edition

In anesthesia practice and treatment, pharmacology and therapeutics are intimately related, synergistic, and mutually reinforcing. Rapid advances in pharmacotherapy often offer myriad treatment options for clinicians to sort through when developing patient management strategies. In turn, the principles of clinical therapeutics are rooted in fundamental pharmacology. Clinicians must understand pharmacologic principles in order to formulate and implement therapeutic algorithms that maximize patient benefit. Pharmacology in Anesthesia Practice provides clinicians with a rapid and easy review of the most commonly utilized pharmacologic agents during perioperative care. Clinical application is emphasized throughout. It aims to offer clinicians point-of-care guidance from internationally recognized authors and centers of excellence.
