Medical Pharmacology at a Glance 8th Edition PDF
This book is written primarily for medical students but it should also be useful to students and scientists in other disciplines who would like an elementary and concise introduction to pharmacology. In this book the text has been reduced to a minimum for understanding the figures. Nevertheless, I have attempted in each chapter to explain how the drugs produce their effects and to outline their uses.
In this eighth edition the chapters have been updated. Certain topics, e.g. drugs used in AIDs, have been revised and drugs acting on the urinary system have been added. Acknowledgements I am grateful to Professor J.M. Ritter for his advice and helpful comments on the case studies and questions. I am also grateful to Professor P. Chowienczyk for his help with the cardiovascular chapters and to Professor C. Stanford for her advice and comments on the chapters concerning drugs used in psychiatry.
