Overview

Now available as software for your handheld!
Essential at-a-glance guidance whenever and wherever it's needed. Previously published as the Anesthesia Drug Manual, this handy guide, now entitled Perioperative Drugs, once again concisely reviews the essential pharmacokinetic and pharmacodynamic properties of more than 400 drugs in 36 drug classes to give readers an informed basis for sound decision-making. It enables clinicians to quickly review the pharmacologic properties of all of the drugs a patient might be taking, and to anticipate interactions between these medications and anesthetics. The concisely organized, templated format facilitates quick reference, and a PDA version makes it accessible any setting.

  • Describes the drugs a surgical patient might be taking for other medical conditions, and how these drugs interact with anesthetics.
  • Details approximately 400 drugs in 36 different drugs classes, including drugs recently approved by the FDA.
  • Uses a concise, bulleted format to present-generic and trade name · pharmacokinetics · indications · pharmaco-dynamics involving the central nervous, cardiovascular, pulmonary, hepatic, renal, gastrointestinal, and musculoskeletal systems · dosages/concentrations for adults and children · specific contraindications · and interactions/allergic responses-for each drug.
  • Includes a "key point" for every drug entry that summarizes the clinical implications of the drug for the patient's perioperative course.

  • Is meticulously updated throughout to incorporate all of the latest information.
  • Features new sections on transplant drugs as well as alternative and herbal medications, and offers expanded coverage of blood substitutes.

The CD-ROM version of this handheld software is not Mac-compatible. All Mac users must purchase the downloadable version (ISBN 0-7216-0540-0). See link to this product under "Companion Products".
