Anesthesia for the New Millenium: Modern Anesthetic Clinical Pharmacology contains the refresher course lectures of the 1999 meeting and is a review of the current state of the art in anesthesia clinical pharmacology. The authors of the individual chapters are among the world's most widely recognized experts in the pharmacology of perioperative medicine. The book features sections on new pharmacology concepts, new drug delivery techniques, recently released drugs and novel thinking about older drugs. It also addresses several areas that have recently emerged as very hot clinical and research topics, including depth of anesthesia monitoring technology and anesthesia drug interactions. The textbook is the seventeenth in a continuing series documenting the proceedings of the postgraduate course.
