This edition is slimmer than the third edition with pages rather than pages. This has been achieved by reducing the number of drugs vs and grouping some drugs into sections, that is, angiotensin-converting enzyme inhibitors, aminoglycosides, fluoroquinolones, and selective serotonin re-uptake inhibitors SSRIs. While this may have slightly reduced the bulk of the book, it can make navigating it quickly for a specific drug in these groups more difficult. The format remains the same, a revised, comprehensive glossary of terms used, followed by an A—Z of drugs and then two indexes, the first of drug derivation and the second of medical usage.
Drugs in Anaesthesia and Intensive Care
By Martin Sasada and Susan Smith. New York, Oxford University Press, Pages: Many anesthesiologists choose to carry a small pocket manual of the drugs most often encountered in clinical practice.
The updated version of this manual is well designed for the clinical environment: it is softbound with a splash-resistant plastic cover and easily fits into a labcoat or scrub suit pocket. Inside, the reader will find a description of drugs, listed in alphabetical order, and all tersely summarized in a consistent format.
After the generic drug name, a one- to three-page discussion highlights 1 clinical uses, 2 chemical classification, 3 commercially available preparation, 4 fundamental clinical, cellular, and molecular pharmacologic actions, 5 routes of administration and dosages, 6 pharmacodynamic effects on major organ systems, 7 toxicity and side effects, 8 pharmacokinetics, and 9 special points.
This last section, Special Points, might better be termed Clinical Pearls, because it is in these closing remarks that the clinical anesthesiologist, who is largely familiar with most of these drugs, will be reminded of the key issues to guide safe practice.
Having this book in my possession for several months before the editorial office expected my review, I took the opportunity to pass the manual around to several colleagues for their input. Four staff anesthesiologists, one fellow, and one resident carried the book for 1 week while working in the intensive care unit. Although their comments confirmed several of my biases, they had a few additional insightful observations.
The two trainees found this book more helpful than the attending staff. This did not surprise me because Sasada and Smith intended this work to help the anesthesia resident registrar prepare for written and oral examinations.
The alphabetical listing of drugs gives the book a simple and logical organization, but this approach makes it harder to search for alternative drugs within the same class or clinical application.
The two indexes are not of much assistance either. The Index of Drug Derivation provides chemical classifications, but how often does a physician look up aryloxypropanolamine to find esmolol or pipecoloxylidide aminoamide to locate ropivacaine? The task of searching and cross-referencing thus falls to the Index of Medical Uses.
Unfortunately this index is not nearly as complete as one might hope. For example, inotropic support sends the reader to dobutamine and isoprenaline isoproterenol , but fails to cite adrenaline epinephrine , aminophylline, dopamine, dopexamine, digoxin, enoximone, ephedrine, glucagon, metaraminol, or noradrenaline norepinephrine -even though all of these drugs are listed alphabetically in the manual.
One final comment on drug searching needs mentioning. Although the trainee or even the practicing clinician will be served best by using generic names in all written and oral communication, the reality of clinical practice requires familiarity with trade names of pharmaceuticals.
This is my opportunity to ask that the authors include these in their next edition, so that readers on both sides of the Atlantic Ocean can find what they need in this handy volume, whether they look up Xylocaine, lidocaine, or lignocaine.
By incorporating these changes, which will facilitate the reader's search for a specific and appropriate therapeutic agent, Drugs in Anaesthesia and Intensive Care would be an even better choice for anesthesiologists and intensivists looking for a useful and affordable pocket manual.

Handbook of Pain Management pp Cite as. In order to prescribe for and treat painful conditions pharmacologically it is important to know whether the pain to be treated is nociceptive, neuropathic or mixed in nature. Neuropathic pain in particular may not respond to conventional analgesics. A simple and successful way to use analgesics in most pain conditions requires application of the World Health Organization WHO pain ladder  and use of multimodal analgesia. This chapter will focus on non-opioid, opioid and anti-neuropathic analgesic medications in current usage and will comment on their efficacy and safe prescription. Unable to display preview.

This drug was first produced in but not used as an inhalational anaesthetic drug until the s. It is easy to manufacture and is produced by heating concentrated sulphuric acid with ethanol. It is considered one of the safest inhalational drugs to give because respiratory depression precedes cardiovascular depression. However, giving it is complicated by its slow onset and offset, and airway irritation. Its flammable properties are also a problem if diathermy is being used. Its use in the UK has been superseded by other inhalational drugs, but is still used worldwide, because of its low cost and safety.
