Designed for quick access to essential anesthesia drug information, Sota Omoigui’s Anesthesia Drugs Handbook app is a complete clinical guide in a handy portable format. This pocket reference is packed with tables, descriptions and expanded dosing information covering a broad range of drugs and the various routes of administration commonly used in the practice of anesthesia and critical care. As a synopsis of anesthetic pharmacology it is a useful review for the beginning trainee and the advanced practitioner. An all-time best seller, the Anesthesia Drugs Handbook has been translated into Italian, Japanese, Malaysian, Polish and Portuguese.
Over 140 drugs are listed alphabetically for ease of reference. Each is presented using a standard format: use(s), dosing, elimination, how supplied, storage information and a brief review of pharmacology. Next pharmacokinetics are summarized in a succinct manner: onset of action, peak effect and duration of action. Interaction/toxicity, guidelines/precautions, and principal adverse reactions are also included for each drug. The book also contains a section on volatile anesthetics presented in the same format and a handy appendix with infusion tables, updated CPR algorithms and a drug compatibility table.
