  • Paul White, PhD, MD, Professor and McDermott Chair of Anesthesia, University of Texas, Southwestern Medical Center, Dallas, TX

Now available as software for your handheld! Essential at-a-glance guidance whenever and wherever it's needed. Previously published as the Anesthesia Drug Manual, this handy guide, now entitled Perioperative Drugs, once again concisely reviews the essential pharmacokinetic and pharmacodynamic properties of more than 400 drugs in 36 drug classes to give readers an informed basis for sound decision-making. It enables clinicians to quickly review the pharmacologic properties of all of the drugs a patient might be taking, and to anticipate interactions between these medications and anesthetics. The concisely organized, templated format facilitates quick reference, and a PDA version makes it accessible any setting.
