PHARMACOLOGY: AN INTRODUCTORY TEXT is a perennial favorite that occupies a unique niche among low/LPN-level pharmacology texts. It is the smallest, simplest, shortest, and most inexpensive pharmacology text available for LPN/LVN and allied health programs. The ninth edition of this popular text is extensively revised with new content highlighting two increasingly important topics: lifespan considerations and alternative therapies. The book also sports a fresh new two-color design and dozens of new illustrations. To enhance usability in LPN/LVN programs, the text now includes a Disorders Index, and the Instructor's Manual includes strategies for teaching pharmacology in integrated curricula

The book contains black-and-white illustrations.
