The authors successfully cover these potentially dry subjects in a very readable and user-friendly way.The rest of the text is devoted to detailed coverage of the classes of drug used in anaethesia. Each of these latter chapters include a discussion of subjects such as chemical and physical properties, effects on the various systems, pharmacokinetics, mode of action, clinical uses, unwanted effects and treatment of adverse reactions. Relevant physiology is also given where appropriate.The broad coverage of this book means that readers do not need to refer to a basic pharmacology or physiology text, but can use this as a primary resource, whether they are studying for a postgraduate examination or just keeping up to date.
