Elsevier now offers a series of derivative works based on the acclaimed Meylers Side Effect of Drugs, 15th Edition. These individual volumes are grouped by specialty to benefit the practicing physician or health care clinician.

A safe and efficient anesthesia practice requires appropriate drug knowledge. Catastrophes under anesthesia have focused attention on the interaction between drugs, including prescribed and non-prescribed medications, including interactions with vitamins, herbal preparations, traditional remedies, and food supplements.

This book summarizes the adverse effects of a large range of drugs used in anesthesia. The material is drawn from the 15th edition of the internationally renowned encyclopedia, Meyler’s Side Effects of Drugs, and the latest volumes in the companion series, Side Effects of Drugs Annuals.

This volume is critical for any health professional involved in the administration of anesthesia.
