Instructor resources are also available. Contact your sales representative for details.
  • Provides the core, basic pharmacology content necessary to meet curriculum needs.
  • Offers a review of basic math skills and the framework for pharmacologic principles to help students apply the information to surgical situations.
  • Each chapter includes helpful learning tools such as learning objectives, key terms with definitions, chapter summaries, and review questions.
  • Includes common surgical medications by category with descriptions of surgical applications.
  • The Basic Pharmacology chapter is expanded to include more content on drug classifications and explanations of their subcategories.

Editorial Reviews

Krysia Warren Hudson
This is a basic general pharmacology reference written for surgical technologists. The purpose is to provide pharmacological information for surgical technologists. While I think this is a worthy objective, I am unsure what this information will enable these technologists to do. I believe it is written for those who work in the surgical realm but do not have a formal education in medicine, such as nurses. The authors wrote this book because they felt no text existed for this population of surgical technologists. I feel that their audience (high school level of education) would appreciate a basic text such as this. Very general areas are covered, from basic math to anesthesia complications. I particularly liked the section on pharmacokinetics and pharmacodynamics. A noteworthy features is how key words are not only highlighted but explained in the beginning of each chapter. Also impressive are the critical thinking questions provided at the end of each chapter. Conversely, I found the history of pharmacology and the basic math sections to be a weakness of this text. I think that the target readers would appreciate cases in which they could evaluate simple situations. This is a good, basic book for those who need to understand minimal basics in the surgical arena. I feel that the authors tried to reach a population (surgical technologists) that could use a simple reference. I am unaware of any other books that serve this population, and I strongly feel that all employees in the surgical arena need to have references that they can understand and help them mature in their field of work.
