Overview

Introduction to Pharmacology is known for presenting need-to-know information in a straightforward, easy-to-digest format. As Elsevier's most basic textbook of pharmacology for nurses and allied health professionals, it features a thorough review of mathematics and dosage calculation, an introduction to the basic principles of pharmacology, and concise monographs on every major drug — including drug dosage information.

• Streamlined drug monographs offer essential information, including drug dosages.

• A comprehensive review of math and the basics of calculating drug dosage are the subjects of the first nine chapters — all of Unit One.

• Considerations boxes offer tips and warnings on adverse drug reactions for children, older adults, and pregnant and nursing women.

• Clinical Implications lists provide hints, warnings, and practical information on the drugs covered in each chapter.

• Herb Alerts boxes examine popular herbal supplements, and discuss their interactions with commonly used drugs.

• Critical Thinking questions encourage thought and discussion of real-life issues.

• Review Questions, in multiple-choice format, allow students to confirm their mastery of the chapter content.

• A Disorders Index lists drugs by the disorder they treat — especially useful for programs in which pharmacology is integrated into the curriculum.

• Each chapter opens with Objectives that outline the important concepts to follow.

• Glossary is marked by an easy-to-locate tab, and serves as a convenient reference for terminology and pronunciation.

• Canadian Drug Information in appendix summarizes the laws and practices governing drug distribution in Canada, and provides a comprehensive list of Canadian trade names.

• Pain Medications chapter covers management of long-term, chronic pain, using a patient-centered
• Innovations: Gene Therapy chapter introduces this emerging issue and presents the new drugs being developed.

• A Key Terms list opens each chapter, highlighting words for study and providing pronunciation keys.
