Clinical Pharmacology for Anesthesiology
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. Features
- 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
Dermal Drug Delivery: From Innovation to Production
by Tapash K. Ghosh
With the continued advancement of better-quality control and patient outcome reporting systems, changes in the development, control, and regulation of all pharmaceutical delivery systems including transdermal and topical products have been happening on a continuous basis. In light of various quality issues that have been reported by patients and practitioners resulting in the recall or removal of products from the market, both the pharmaceutical industries and regulatory agencies have been adopting new measures to address these issues. With chapters written by experts in this field, this book takes a 21st century multidisciplinary and cross-functional look at these dosage forms to improve the development, design, manufacturing, quality, clinical performance, safety, and regulation of these products. This book offers a wealth of up-to-date information organized in a logical sequence corresponding to various stages of research, development, and commercialization of dermal drug delivery products. The authors have been carefully selected from different sectors of pharmaceutical science for their expertise in their selected areas to present objectively a balanced view of the current state of these products development and commercialization via regulatory approval. Their insights will provide useful information to others to ensure the successful development of the next generation dermal drug products. Key Features:
- Presents current advancements including new technologies of transdermal and topical dosage forms.
- Presents challenges in the development of the new generation of transdermal and topical dosage forms.
- Introduces new technologies and QbD (quality by design) aspects of manufacturing and control strategies.
- Includes new perspectives on pre-clinical and clinical development, regulatory considerations, safety and quality.
- Discusses regulatory challenges, gaps, and future considerations for dermal drug delivery systems.
