Practical Pharmacology in Rehabilitation: Effect of Medication on Therapy With Web Resource serves as a textbook for students and a reference book for practicing rehabilitation professionals. Rather than discussing pharmacology as it relates to only a limited segment of rehabilitation professions, this text takes an interdisciplinary approach to the effects of medications on rehabilitation patients and assists rehabilitation professionals in designing patient-specific therapy plans based on coexisting disease states.

Practical Pharmacology in Rehabilitation explains the necessary pharmacology and then focuses on the relationship between medications and the rehabilitation process. It offers a proactive approach to educating the patient and caregiver, monitoring the patient for side effects, and modifying therapy plans to provide the most effective and safe therapy for each patient. Written by a clinical pharmacist, a speech-language pathologist, and a physical therapist and athletic trainer, this unique guide helps readers in these ways:

• Optimize rehabilitation sessions with appropriately timed and dosed administration of medication.

• Understand the effects of medication on cognition and learning necessary for accomplishing the tasks of rehabilitation.

• Identify medication-associated issues affecting the rehabilitation progress, such as dysphagia and problems with muscle function.

• Work with patients, caregivers, staff, and physicians to determine appropriate interventions regarding medication use in patients.

In each chapter, Patient Cases based on the authors’ clinical experiences engage readers in understanding how medications can positively or negatively affect the rehabilitation process. Readers will need to consider the role of various medications, drug interactions, and drug intolerances on speech and language, cognition, and ADL and motor functioning as they apply concepts to determine possible solutions to each case. Throughout the text more than 100 easy-to-use tables provide quick access to information, including potential side effects affecting rehabilitation for common medications used in treatment for many conditions and other possible side effects or considerations. Expanded versions of many of these tables are offered as downloadable PDFs in the accompanying web resource. Those tables provide more complete and in-depth coverage by breaking medications down by class, indications, dosage, and potential side effects or interactions.

Practical Pharmacology in Rehabilitation begins by presenting foundational concepts necessary for understanding clinical disease states and the impact of medications used for treatment on rehabilitation. Chapters that follow are grouped by categories of clinical disease covering psychiatric and cognitive disorders, neurologic and movement disorders, chronic pain syndromes and substance abuse disorders, immune system disorders, and common chronic diseases such as diabetes, cardiac disease, thyroid and parathyroid disease, respiratory diseases, gastrointestinal diseases, and dysphagia.

Each chapter begins with a definition of the condition or special population that it focuses on. Chapters are organized to provide an overview of the pathophysiology, pharmacology, mechanism of action, dosing and monitoring for effects, drug and food interactions, side effects and effects on rehabilitation, and the role of various rehabilitation specialists for each disease state. Summaries conclude each chapter to reinforce the important concepts covered. A glossary is included, and terms are boldfaced in the text to denote their inclusion. A medication index, an index of important terms, and an appendix with information on administering medications using iontophoresis and phonophoresis are also included.

With Practical Pharmacology in Rehabilitation, students in rehabilitation and related health care fields can gain essential knowledge to prevent adverse occurrences and medical complications and work with their patients, caregivers, pharmacists, and physicians to optimize rehabilitation and the return to daily living. For rehabilitation professionals, this essential reference provides an integrated understanding of medication use with nonpharmacologic therapies in rehabilitation patients.

Editorial Reviews

Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: Monique Serpas, PT, DPT, OCS (Touro Infirmary)
Description: This reference guide for rehabilitation clinicians describes medications in the context of specific conditions encountered in rehabilitation and their effects on treatment.
Purpose: The authors' goal is to integrate pharmacology into clinical practice in an easy-to-use format that assists rehabilitation professionals in designing effective treatment plans that keeps the patient's condition, comorbidities, and current medication therapies in mind. By organizing the book according to medical condition, including case studies, noting rehabilitation implications of specific medications, and indexing by medication as well as important terms, the authors have met their objectives. The authors include a pharmacist, a speech-language pathologist, and a physical therapist/athletic trainer. Including an author who commonly prescribes medication might have further advanced the goal of presenting an interdisciplinary approach to this topic.
Audience: The intended audience includes students as well as practicing clinicians. Although this is a practical reference for practicing clinicians, the book does not go into enough detail on pharmacokinetics for students. There are no illustrations, which may make learning concepts of pharmacology for the first time difficult. The tables in each chapter that list the medication, side effects affecting rehabilitation, and other side effects or considerations make this book an easy reference for busy practicing clinicians.
Features: Part one of the book's six parts has chapters on foundations in pharmacology including how medications are monitored, their effects on the nervous system and muscle function, and the impact of medication on nutrition in rehabilitation. Parts two through six are organized by disorders and diseases encountered in rehabilitation that therapy has a direct effect on, from neurological diseases including Parkinson's to the treatment of musculoskeletal diseases such as osteoarthritis. There is also discussion of disorders and diseases for which therapy does not have a direct effect on treatment, such as inflammatory bowel disease and schizophrenia. The book includes brief descriptions of pathophysiology followed by commonly used medications and their side effects and considerations in rehabilitation. The tables in each chapter that list medications and side effects have a corresponding web resource that is more in depth. There is a good section in the appendix on iontophoresis and phonophoresis that lists medications commonly used in these interventions as well as treatment parameters. The chapter on pain is superficial in its description of the pathophysiology of pain and makes understanding the mechanism of a medication's effect on pain more difficult.
Assessment: This book's descriptions of pharmacokinetics and pharmacodynamics are not as in depth as those in Pharmacology in Rehabilitation, 4th edition, Ciccone (F. A. Davis, 2007). However, it is a useful resource for busy practicing clinicians looking to gain more of an understanding of how their patients' medications can impact therapy and it may assist clinicians in educating patients about these effects.
