Synopsis:

Fundamentals of Pharmacology for Paramedics provides students with the insight and understanding of pharmacological essentials needed to respond effectively to the patients' needs. This textbook will help students improve, expand, and enhance their expertise and the overall health and wellbeing of their patients, while boosting their self-confidence as paramedics in the process. This textbook integrates the extensive knowledge of pharmacology into a workable and accessible plan of care that will help to improve patient care. The book also includes:

  • Thorough introductions to pharmacology and how to use pharmaceutical, and prescribing reference guides
  • Comprehensive explorations of the legal and ethical issues of pharmacology within paramedicine and the role of the paramedic in medicines management
  • Practical discussions of pharmacodynamics, pharmacokinetics, drug formulations, and adverse drug reactions
  • In-depth examinations of a wide variety of medicines, including analgesics, antibacterials, and medications used in the cardiovascular, renal, respiratory, gastrointestinal, and nervous systems

Written for students of paramedicine, Fundamentals of Pharmacology for Paramedics would also prove an indispensable resource for practicing paramedics seeking a practical, one-stop reference on a challenging subject.
