In recent years our understanding of molecular mechanisms of drug action and interindividual variability in drug response has grown enormously. Meanwhile, the practice of anesthesiology has expanded to the preoperative environment and numerous locations outside the OR. Anesthetic Pharmacology: Basic Principles and Clinical Practice, 2nd edition, is an outstanding therapeutic resource in anesthesia and critical care: Section 1 introduces the principles of drug action, Section 2 presents the molecular, cellular and integrated physiology of the target organ/functional system and Section 3 reviews the pharmacology and toxicology of anesthetic drugs. The new Section 4, Therapeutics of Clinical Practice, provides integrated and comparative pharmacology and the practical application of drugs in daily clinical practice. Edited by three highly acclaimed academic anesthetic pharmacologists, with contributions from an international team of experts, and illustrated in full colour, this is a sophisticated, user-friendly resource for all practitioners providing care in the perioperative period.

In The Press

'Despite being titled as a pharmacology text, there is significant coverage of the pathophysiology and practice of anaesthesia. The content is current, with several new drug compounds and theories of action described. This book complements the filtered down information found in many of the smaller texts recommended to trainees sitting exams and by increasing understanding of the subjects might aid long-term learning … It provides an enormous amount of information to the reader in a clear and understandable format. As a reference text, it would be a bood addition to the library of an anaesthesiaor intensive care department.' The Journal of Anaesthesia
