Principles of Pharmacology for Athletic Trainers is designed to help athletic training students understand the basic principles of pharmacology, as well as the broad classification of drugs.

Drs. Joel Houglum, Gary Harrelson, and Deidre Leaver-Dunn have created a user-friendly format to help students meet the pharmacology domain outlined in the NATA Competencies in Athletic Training. Over 100 helpful figures and tables help to summarize the information presented and provide clinical examples.

Principles of Pharmacology for Athletic Trainers begins by detailing the principles of drug action, administering and dispensing drugs, using drug references, medication adverse effects, therapy considerations, and classification of drugs.

The pharmacological actions of eight categories of drugs including antibiotics, anti-inflammatory medications, and gastrointestinal medications are examined in the next section. Each drug-specific chapter profiles the biological effects, indications, adverse effects, and the drugs' impact on exercise or how exercise can impact the distribution and availability of drugs.

In providing a complete and up-to-date summary of pharmacology, Principles of Pharmacology for Athletic Trainers concludes with an overview of performance enhancing drugs and an in-depth analysis of drug testing.

Principles of Pharmacology for Athletic Trainers is a unique resource that not only simplifies the broad range of principles and classification of drugs; it also provides specific application information for the athletic trainer.

Features

Review:

"This text is written in an orderly progression, beginning with an introduction to pharmacokinetics and pharmacology...

...the writing style is consistent and the chapters follow similar layouts.

...illustrations do serve to clarify particular concepts.

...numerous tables serve to encapsulate the text are very useful for quick reference.

...as the name states, this would be appropriate for a course in pharmacology, would meet BOC guidelines for this competency, and is complete enough to be the sole text for such a course.

...this text could serve as a reference for the athletic training room and would be very helpful in establishing procedures for the storage and dispensing of medications.

...a well written reasonably priced text.

...as drugs come to the forefront in athletics and athletic trainees deal with an ever-widening cross-section of the population, the information contained in this text will be invaluable to all athletic trainers."

— John Miller, PhD, ATC, Journal of Athletic Training



“One of the strengths of this text is the depth and breadth. The organization of the text is great. I really like the flow charts that give the reader both a heads up and a review...the other huge advantage...is the charts, graphs, and tables. In many cases the tables are directly linked to the Athletic Training Educational Competencies which is another BONUS of the text.”

— Elizabeth Swann, PhD, ATC, Nova Southeastern University, Fort Lauderdale, FL



"...chapters are easy to follow and do not require the reader to have an extensive biochemistry background. Although the book is written for athletic trainers, students and clinicians from other sports medicine disciplines would benefit from the information."

— Janice K. Loudon, PT, PhD, SCS, Physical Therapy
