Preface:

In my 20 years of pharmacology, I have taught a variety of students in nursing, medical assisting, surgical technology, and respiratory therapy. I have also taught those who may not deliver direct patient care, such as students of psychology and clinical lab science. There is always one constant challenge: to provide students with enough pharmacology knowledge so that they feel confident as they embark on their health profession careers but not so much that they are overwhelmed. For those students who will administer medication, pharmacology is critical; for others, it is a subject that will aid their understanding of the patient care relationship, although they may not be directly involved with the patient. This edition of the book has been greatly expanded, just as so many of our reviewers asked for. I’ve tried to build on the solid foundation of the first edition and to expand the coverage of drugs, keeping in mind always the suggestions we received from pharmacology faculty from around the nation. I hope you’ll be pleased with the results. My goal for the second edition of this book is to divide pharmacology into elemental concepts to allow students to understand how medications work and how they are administered as well as health professionals’ role in the process. This new edition is divided into four units:
■ Unit 1: Introduction to Pharmacology discusses the fundamentals of pharmacology, including history, patient safety and regulations, and prescription labels. Each topic lays the foundation for the work ahead.
■ Unit 2: Calculations begins with Chapter 6, Basic Review of Mathematics, which covers basic mathematical calculations and progresses to more advanced ones. This review provides many testing opportunities for students to assess their knowledge through the Check-Up exercises throughout the chapter. Chapter 7, Measurement Systems, addresses the various measurements systems and shows students how to convert among the metric, household, and apothecary systems. Chapter 8, Dosage Calculations, ends this unit by showing students how to calculate dosages. In this chapter, students have many opportunities to practice dosage calculations using a variety of examples to increase their knowledge and confidence in administering medications.
■ Unit 3: Administration of Medications includes Chapters 9 and 10, Enteral and Parenteral Medications and Administration, which provide step-by-step instructions through Procedure Boxes with supporting images.
