This book covers the whole gamut of pharmacology from basic science pharmacology and pathophysiology, through clinical pharmacology to therapeutics. This integrative approach is in line with the new medical curricula. The first section covers the basic principles, followed by the bulk of the book organised by body systems. The book ends with sections on toxicity and prescribing practice. Each chapter ends with case histories, multiple choice questions and a tabular presentation of all common drugs within a particular class.
The level of detail closely matches the needs of medical students and the current medical curriculum.
