A book in pharmacology which finally distinctly meets the needs of the allied health professional. The focused teach-and-test approach of this book provides readers with the perfect blend of concise content and an enjoyable—even fun—learning process. Pharmacology and fun have never been joined in the same sentence—until now! Uniquely designed to use a focused approach to learning pharmacology, the introductory chapters lay the groundwork for learning this topic by explaining the history of pharmacology, discussing the legal and ethical principles involved, illustrating drug administration techniques, reviewing math, and explaining drug calculations. Using a five-heading approach to focused pharmacologic principles, each drug chapter focuses on drugs used to treat a certain body system or disease type. The chapters open with a concise review of anatomy and physiology to provide readers with a foundation from which to understand the pharmacologic principles actions, effects, and uses of the drugs that treat a body system or disorder.
