9780071476287: Applied Clinical Pharmacokinetics

The easiest and most trusted way to learn the clinical application of pharmacokinetics

5 STAR DOODY'S REVIEW!
"This is an important reference that teaches clinically relevant pharmacokinetic dosing and therapeutic drug monitoring tools. This second edition includes updated information on dosing immunosuppressants, as well as dosing concepts in pediatric and hemodialysis patients. The book is intended as an instructive tool in pharmacokinetics for healthcare practitioners who wish to learn these concepts and apply them in their clinical practice. The book satisfies its objectives, outlining important pharmacokinetic concepts in an organized and easy to understand fashion. It is also written by a pharmacist with extensive experience in pharmacokinetics and includes clinically pertinent pearls for individual drugs.
This second edition succeeds at providing updated information on pharmacokinetic concepts. The book presents information in a manner that allows readers to teach themselves about pharmacokinetic dosing and to update their knowledge about clinically relevant concepts for the medications. These concepts are critical because medications are far too often dosed without individual patient characteristics (weight, age, concomitant medications) in mind. It is important to individualize dosing based on pharmacokinetic methods, to monitor levels, and to adjust subsequent dosing based on peaks, troughs, renal, and hepatic function." -- Doody's

The most current, hands-on book in the field, Applied Clinical Pharmacokinetics gives you clear and useful coverage of drug dosing and drug monitoring that no other text can match. It offers the latest standardized techniques and approaches to patient-specific dosing plus new information on more recent pharmacokinetically monitored drugs.

Written by a nationally recognized authority in pharmacokinetics, Applied Clinical Pharmacokinetics provides essential information covered in pharmaceutics, pharmacokinetics, therapeutics, and clinical pharmacy courses. It can be also be used as a clinical refresher to brush up on key concepts and procedures.

Review:

"This is an important reference that teaches clinically relevant pharmacokinetic dosing and therapeutic drug monitoring tools. This second edition includes updated information on dosing immunosuppressants, as well as dosing concepts in pediatric and hemodialysis patients....It includes information that is critical for practitioners to learn and apply to patient care as well as extensive examples and problems with solutions so readers can master the outlined pharmacokinetic concepts. The book can also be used by students who are learning pharmacokinetics and it would be an excellent text for teaching this course. Each chapter is well organized and includes basic as well as advanced pharmacokinetic information. However, the book truly succeeds in presenting this information in a way that is easy to comprehend....This second edition succeeds at providing updated information on pharmacokinetic concepts. The book presents information in a manner that allows readers to teach themselves about pharmacokinetic dosing and to update their knowledge about clinically relevant concepts for the medications. 5 Stars!"--Doody's Review Service ( Doody's 2008-11-05)

Book Description:

Improving upon and updating the information and format of the leading competing clinical pharmacokinetic text (Winter, LW7W), Dr. Bauer, a nationally recognized leader in the field of pharmacokinetics has conceived a text for today and tomorrow's pharmacy student and practitioner. The text emphasizes the practical aspects of drug dosing for agents that have serum concentrations commonly available from clinical laboratories. Filling a hole in our list between Shargel and Schumacher, this book will focus on patient specific drug dosing, thereby emphasizing the standard clinical pharmacokinetic dosing techniques.
