Apply the core principles of pharmacology for safe, effective anesthesia practice

Clinical Pharmacology for Anesthesiology incorporates the latest research and effectively details what anesthesia care providers must know about the drugs they use in everyday practice.

This comprehensive textbook uses a visual approach with an abundance of tables and illustrations to assist the practicing anesthesia care provider, resident, and student of anesthesia. The text begins with an overview of fundamental pharmacology concepts (pharmacokinetics, pharmacodynamics, and drug interactions) and then details all classes of drugs relevant to the anesthesiologist in a highly clinical manner.


  • Applies clinical pharmacology principles to patient care, focusing on how anesthetic drugs interact with one another in regards to analgesia, sedation, and hypnosis.
  • Delivers a concise overview of anesthetics and other drugs (diuretics, antiemetics, antiseizure medications, etc.) used in the perioperative environment
  • Describes how patient covariates, such as body weight, blood loss, and age influence drug behavior
  • Incorporates the use of computer simulations to visually present drug concentration and effects forselected anesthetic techniques in premedication, induction, maintenance, emergence, and sedation
  • Includes simulations of sample anesthetic techniques for various challenging surgical procedures

Ken B. Johnson, MD (Salt Lake City, UT) is Associate Professor, Learned Family Associate Professorship; Director, Center for Patient Simulation, Department of Anesthesiology, The University of Utah School of Medicine.
