Designed for quick access to essential anesthesia drug information, The Anesthesia Drugs Handbook, second edition, is a complete guide in a handy, portable format. This "pocket brain" is packed with tables, descriptions and dosages covering a broad range of drugs and the various routes of administration commonly used in the practice of anesthesia and intensive care. As a synopsis of anesthetic pharmacology, it is a useful review for the beginning trainee and the advanced practitioner. This second edition has been completely revised and updated for 1995-1996.
Over 130 drugs are listed alphabetically for ease of reference. Each entry is presented using a standard format: use(s), dosing, elimination, how supplied, and a brief review of pharmacology. Pharmacokinetics of each drug are summarized in a succinct manner: onset of action, peak effect and duration of action. Interaction/toxicity, guidelines/precautions, and principal adverse actions are also included for each drug. The book also contains a section on volatile anesthetics presented in the same format and a handy appendix section with infusion tables, CPR algorithms and a drug incompatibility table.
