Better understand the complexities of pharmacology and physiology relevant to your practice with the brand-new medical reference book, Pharmacology and Physiology for Anesthesia. Drs. Hugh Hemmings and Talmage Egan provide the clinical insights you need to effectively administer anesthesia, ensuring patient safety and the most optimal outcomes.

"...This is a useful well-written textbook of pharmacology and physiology. There is a greater emphasis on the pharmacology, but both sciences are dealt with to a high standard...I am happy to recommend this book as a useful learning and reference source." Reviewed by: C.S Reilly on behalf of British Journal of Anaesthesia, Feb 2014
