Editorial Reviews

Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: Timothy John McMahon, MPT (Mercer University College of Pharmacy and Health Sciences)
Description: Using a systems approach, this book presents basic pharmacologic principles, mechanisms of action, and side effects of major drug categories, discussing how drugs affect rehabilitation and how rehabilitation can affect drug effectiveness. The first edition was published in 2006.
Purpose: This update is timely due to medication advances and new interactions.
Audience: The author notes that this material is commensurate with the knowledge requirements of a doctorate in physical therapy. However, the book also is an excellent resource for experienced clinicians and residents, due to newer medications and their effects.
Features: The book covers most major categories of pharmacology in its seven sections and 28 chapters. The first section is a well done presentation of pharmacology constructs. The six remaining sections are arranged by body systems and pathologies. Chapters new to this edition cover vitamins and minerals, complementary and alternative agents, and drugs of abuse and doping agents. Multiple summary charts, figures, and illustrations demonstrate concepts. Each chapter has an activities section with exercises for students to apply principles. Online resources include activities, content updates, references linked to Medline, image collections for classroom presentation, and a test bank. This is an excellent resource for a course in pharmacology for rehabilitation professionals. The book is indexed but does not have a glossary.
Assessment: This is an excellent resource for students in doctoral programs or for experienced clinicians who need a reference for pharmacologic considerations in rehabilitation. This book is appropriate for all areas of physical therapy practice, and I can recommend it without reservation. The second edition is justified because of the continued evolution of pharmacology and the need for updates on medications. This is an important tool to help therapists improve patient-centered care and be more cognizant of adverse drug interactions.

c/o Doody Enterprises Inc.

"This textbook on pharmacology is comprehensive, covering most areas of drug therapy most likely to be encountered by physiothrapists...they cover areas such as the scientific priniciples of pharmacology with chapters on pharmacokinetics, pharmacodynamics and adverse drug reactions; autonomic and cardiovascular pharmacology with the ttherapeutic areas in which the treatment of so much pharmacological treatment contributes...In conclusion while this book may be of value to physiotherapists as a useful reference work that covers most areas of pharmacology."
