    DescriptionThe third edition of this market leading book has been thoroughly updated and expanded, with additional contributions from experts in the field, to include all new drugs available to the anaesthetist and intensive care specialist. Basic pharmacological principles, vital to understanding how individual drugs actually have their effects, are dealt with methodically and with many highly annotated diagrams and tables. With hospital infections becoming increasingly prevalent, the important section on antibiotics has been further expanded. With the third edition, this well established title continues to provide its readers with the most concise yet comprehensive coverage of all aspects of pharmacology. An ideal aid to study and practice for junior and trainee anaesthetists, critical care nurses and all physicians and healthcare professionals working in theatre, accident and emergency departments or intensive care units.

    Review quote
    "With its especially informative and concentrated chapters on the subjects of pharmacology of drugs, medicinal chemistry, mathematics, and pharmacokinetics, Basic Principles is undeniably the best section of the book. In my opinion, the chapters in this section are well worth the price of the book and would be of great benefit to residents in any medical specialty...Overall, the book is well written and the information is very well presented, and it merits both the reputation and the audience it has garnered." --Canadian Journal of Anesthesia
