Summary note:
"Pharmacology for Nurse Anesthesiology provides appropriate chemical, biological, and physical inforamtion of the actions, interactions, and reactions of medication, particularly as they apply and impact the practice of nurse anesthesia. Written by certified registered nurse anesthetists (CRNAs) for CRNAs, this title presents information about various drugs using theoretical aspects based in chemistry, biochemistry, biology, and physics/biophysics and practical aspects straight from actual CRNAs who administer and deal with the medications on a case-by-case, daily basis." "The perfect resource for both practicing professionals and students in CRNA programs!"--BOOK JACKET.
