This concise, illustrative atlas is organized by organ system and further subcategorized by major pathophysiologic conditions affecting particular organ systems. Its strength comes from the integration of Netter’s normal anatomy/physiology and pathophysiology illustrations with detailed, mechanism-of-action illustrations of pharmacologic concepts for a visual presentation of the very complex pharmacodynamic relationship between drugs and body. Divided by specific organ systems, each chapter shows how drugs are used for specific disorders of that system. The authors include clear, concise notes under each image, highlighting the important elements of each principle.
Concise, descriptive and illustrative format which helps to demonstrate the most important principles in pharmacology Full color illustrations showing the organ systems coupled with illustrations showing how a drug works at a particular physiologic site Illustrative conceptualization of pharmacology principles in summary format Not intended to be a "stand alone" pharmacology text -- Compatible with currently used textbooks of pharmacology
This is the ultimate book for the visual learner. Even for those who initially learn best from simple succinct outlines of high yield facts, will find this book to be the best for the final integration of basic sciences into the art of patient care prior to board examinations or clinical studies. I would recommend this book for every healthcare professional who has some need for understanding how drugs work. -Doody's Book Review Service
