"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
This 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.
