Reviews of the 6th edition: I will continue to strongly recommend this text to students whom I teach. (Pharmaceutical Journal, November 2009) The book is valuable as a revision text for medical students and busy clinicians wishing to refresh knowledge. It will also appeal to students and scientists from other disciplines. (Journal of Tropical Pediatrics, 2009) Medical Pharmacology at a Glance presents the basics of medical pharmacology in bit-sized chapters, each of which corresponds approximately to a 60-minute lecture. Students who are new to pharmacology can start at the beginning and work through the text, while the figures provide a refresher on the mechanisms of drug action for those with a more thorough grounding of the key principles. Beginning with the principles of drug action, interaction, absorption and excretion, chapters on drugs used in key diseases/syndromes follow. Case studies and corresponding questions and answers allow the student to test their knowledge. This 7th edition is now also supported online by a full suite of interactive flashcards.
Widely recognised as the best starting point for pharmacology study, the internationally best-selling Medical Pharmacology at a Glance is an ideal companion for all students of the health sciences. Key principles are supported by coloured schematic diagrams - invaluable as both an introduction to medical pharmacology, and revision in the run-up to pharmacology exams. Revised and thoroughly updated throughout, and reflecting changes to the content and assessment methods used by medical schools, Medical Pharmacology at a Glance: Introduces the basic principles of drug action, interaction, absorption and excretion Bases chapters on diseases and syndromes, for clinically-focused learning Includes references to the pathophysiology of disease, to aid understanding of drug choice and action Indicates the therapeutics of choice for specific disorders and conditions Features cross references between discussion of drug classes and diseases Includes self-assessment cases studies with full answers, for revision and review Features a new chapter on immunosuppressants and antirheumatoid drugs Now includes a brand new companion website, with cases and fully downloadable flashcards, at www.ataglanceseries.com/pharmacology
