The author's general aim has been to survey as wide a field of evidence as possible and this had involved excursions into subjects of which he has little first hand knowledge. This width of range also has necessitated a somewhat arbitrary selection of evidence and has prevented full discussion of any indi vidual problem. The author trusts that he has not misrepresented anyone's results or opinions, and if this has occurred, he can only plead in excuse the peculiar difficulty of giving a brief and yet accurate account of evidence of such a wide variety. The diagrams reproduced in the article have all been redrawn and in many cases the original figures or diagrams have been modified as, for instance, by recalculating dosage on the logarithmic scale. The original authors therefore have no direct responsibility for the diagrams in their present form. The author desires to thank Messrs Arnold and Co. for permitting the repro duction of Figs. 9 and 23 from similar figures which appeared in his book "The Mode of Action of Drugs on Cells"; portions of other figures from this book also have been reproduced in modified form. The author also desires to thank Dr. J.M. ROBSON for help in correction of the proofs. Edinburgh, July, 1937. A.J. CLARK. Contents.

This 1984 book, part of the series Progress in Clinical Pharmacy, provides an authoritative account of developments in clinical pharmacy in Europe. It is prefaced by chapters on the American experience in clinical pharmacy education and on patient education. The book reports the proceedings of the twelfth European symposium on clinical pharmacy, held in Barcelona in October 1983. Two of the great challenges facing pharmacy were how better to educate pharmacists to fulfil a clinical or extended role in healthcare and how to meet an important part of such a role, that is the better education of patients in the use of medicines. These two complementary topics were the twin themes of this symposium. As well as papers on these themes, other articles on clinical pharmacy were presented and are published in these proceedings. The book will continue to interest any pharmacist contemplating the development of clinical pharmacy.

Intended for use in an introductory pharmacology course, Basic Pharmacology: Understanding Drug Actions and Reactions provides an in-depth discussion of how to apply the chemical and molecular pharmacology concepts, a discussion students need for more advanced study. The textbook introduces the principles of chemistry and biology necessary to understand drug interactions at the cellular level. The authors highlight chemical and physical properties of drugs, drug absorption and distribution, drug interactions with cellular receptors, and drug metabolism and elimination. The book begins with a review of chemical principles as they apply to drug molecules, focusing mainly on those for commonly prescribed drugs. The authors use drug structures to illustrate the chemical concepts learned in general and organic chemistry courses. They cover the dynamics of receptors in mediating the pharmacological effects of drugs. They clarify theories, drawn from the scientific literature, which explain drug-receptor interactions and the quantitative relationship between drug binding and its effects at the cellular level. The authors’ extensive use of drug structures for teaching chemical and molecular pharmacology principles, and their emphasis on the relevance of these principles in future professional life makes this book unique. It provides the framework for better understanding of advanced pharmacology and therapeutics topics. Blending medicinal chemistry and pharmacodynamics aspects, this textbook clearly elucidates the essential concepts that form the cornerstone for further work in pharmacology.

Basic Pharmacology for Nurses is a modern classic nursing pharmacology textbook known for its impeccably accurate drug content and its practical applications of the nursing process. A consistent emphasis on health promotion through monitoring and patient education is a hallmark of the book. Introductory units ground the reader in basic principles of pharmacology and medication administration. Subsequent body-system units apply the nursing process to every major disorder, and appropriate nursing implications are discussed for every drug class to promote safe medication administration. Provides an overview of relevant pathophysiology with an application of the nursing process in each drug chapter, followed by nursing implications for each applicable drug class. Covers the pharmacology of all major classes of drugs, emphasizing side effects to expect, side effects to report, drug interactions, and more. Emphasizes patient education and health promotion with easy-to-recognize Patient Teaching boxes and reproducible Patient Self-Assessment forms on the Evolve site. Provides need-to-know coverage of herbal therapies and dietary supplements with an Herbal and Dietary Supplement Therapy chapter and Complementary and Alternative Therapies boxes throughout. Increased emphasis on medication safety prepares nurses to practice more safely in a clinical environment that is both more pressured and more focused than ever on reducing drug errors. The increased emphasis includes Chapter 7: Principles of Medication Administration, do-not-confuse icons, and an icon to signal ISMP's "high alert" drugs. As the focus on pharmacology on the NCLEX continues to increase, chapter-ending Get Ready for the NCLEX(R) Examination sections include Key Points, Additional Learning Resources, and Review Questions for the NCLEX Examination. Updated coverage of the most recent FDA approvals, withdrawals, and therapeutic uses provide impeccably accurate and current content to ensure safe drug therapy. Updated and streamlined coverage of nursing care with a focus on the need-to-know material helps students focus on the most current, need-to-know content.

Pharmacology for Student and Pupil Nurses and Student Pharmacy Technicians is based on lectures presented to nurses in training for the State Registration and State Enrollment Examinations and to Students in Dispensing. The book presents an account of drugs that are in use or are very likely to be used. The text includes description of drug administration; antacids, gastric sedatives, laxatives, antidiarrheal, and diuretics are discussed in detail. The intravenous infusions, cardiovascular drugs, anti-anemics, hemostatics, and anticoagulants are described as to their effects and functions. A brief anatomy of the human circulatory process is presented. The next types of drugs discussed are those that target the respiratory system — expectorants and cough sedatives. The effects of sedatives, stimulants, analgesics, and anesthesia on the nervous system are discussed in detail. Antibiotics, drugs combating infection, tropical diseases, sera, and vaccines as prophylactic and therapeutic remedies are explained. Other drugs, such as antiseptic and disinfectants, drugs used in endoctrine therapy and malignant diseases, as well as drugs that are locally applied and those used in diagnosis are explained. The process of ordering, storage, and administration of drugs; calculations used in determining safe dosages; and the poisons regulations concerning dangerous and potentially harmful drugs are covered in detail. Pharmacists, student pharmacy technicians, professors of pharmacology, practitioners of general medicines, and specialists with interests in drug therapy will find this reference valuable.
