Designed for quick access to essential anesthesia drug information, the "Handbook" is a complete clinical guide in a portable format. It is packed with tables, descriptions, and expanded dosing information covering a broad range of drugs and the various routes of administration commonly used in the practice of anesthesia and critical care. As a synopsis of anesthetic pharmacology, it is a useful review for the beginning trainee and the advanced practitioner. Over 140 drugs are listed alphabetically for ease of reference. Each is presented using a standard formal use(s), dosing, elimination, how supplied, storage information, and a brief review of pharmacology. Next, pharmacokinetics are summarized succinctly onset of action, peak effect, and duration of action. Interactions/toxicity guidelines/precautions, and principal adverse reactions are also included for each drug. The "Handbook" also contains a section on volatile anesthetics and a handy appendix.
