Second edition
edited by Robert K. Stoelting

Designed for quick reference in the operating room or rapid review for board exams, this compact, portable handbook presents the most critical clinical information from the newly updated Fourth Edition of Pharmacology and Physiology in Anaesthetic Practice.

Handbook of Pharmacology and Physiology in Anesthetic Practice is written in easy-to-scan outline format, with more than 250 tables to summarize key points and dosages for use in the operating room.

The 60 chapters of Handbook of Pharmacology and Physiology in Anesthetic Practice correspond to the chapters in the textbook, so readers can easily refer back to the textbook for more detailed information. A separate drug index is included.
