Here's the book that Anesthesiology called "a valuable reference irrespective of level of training or experience." This beautifully illustrated, full-color text offers more in-depth coverage of pharmacology and physiology, especially at the molecular level. This resource is perfect for board preparation, recertification, or for use by clinicians wanting to enhance their understanding of the mechanisms of drug action and find a framework from which they can approach the use of new drugs in practice.
• Offers more in-depth coverage of physiology than other texts of its kind.
• Examines the molecular biology of drugs and organ systems.
• Covers the mechanisms of drug action for the latest anesthetic drugs as well as all other drugs that anesthesiologists encounter in practice.
• Features comprehensive information on drug interactions.
• Complements the text with full-color figures that make every concept crystal clear.
• Serves as a perfect resource for board preparation, recertification, or daily clinical use.
• Provides a conceptual framework from which clinicians can approach the use of new drugs in practice.
• Includes outstanding chapters on Pharmacokinetic and Pharmacodynamic Principles of Drug Action, Signal Transduction Mechanisms, Motor Function, GI/Liver Physiology, Neuroprotective Agents, and Immunosuppressants.
