This fifth edition expands the content and comprehensive scope of respiratory care pharmacology. Providing information essential for a working knowledge of respiratory care drugs, the new edition also offers coverage of the principles of pharmacokinetics and disease-based pharmacologic therapy. This edition is split into three sections. The first section covers the basics of respiratory care pharmacology, including the principles of drug action, the basic methods of drug administration, the standard drug calculations, and the effects of drugs on body systems. The second section covers the drugs most frequently delivered to patients by respiratory therapists, and the third section covers the drugs used to treat critical care and cardiovascular patients.
