    Basic Pharmacology

    This textbook is a very basic introduction to pre-hospital pharmacology, that seems to be made for students. I bought this book as a seasoned Paramedic, and found it to be rather disappointing. It does not provide the in-depth mechanism of action that I desire to know. It also does not include all the indications for the medications it covers, nor does it include many of the medications that are currently used in EMS and critical care transport. I highly reccomend: Basic & Clinical Pharamacology by Katzung, if you are looking to expand your knowledge.

    Excellent Textbook for new and experienced paramedics

    This has become a required textbook for all of our incoming paramedic students. In addition it is a good review for seasoned medics. Very easy to read and undertand.
