Pharmacokinetics Made Easy 1R presents the complex subject of pharmacokinetics in a simple, easy-to-understand manner, lending itself to a wide audience including medical practitioners, health professionals and students of pharmacology, medicine and nursing. The physiological approach adopted in the book allows clinical issues in drug therapy to be addressed, making it directly applicable to practice situations.
The chapters in this book were initially published as a series of articles in Australian Prescriber to assist practitioners in drug dosing and therapy.
In this revised edition, the book has been updated according to recent developments and a new chapter called 'How to Determine the Pharmacokinetic Parameters of a Drug' added. Each chapter also has a new feature-a list of key points summarising the content to improve accessibility and understanding.

Pharmacokinetics Made Easy presents the principles of pharmacokinetics in a simple, focused and comprehensive manner which is accessible to medical practitioners, health professionals and students. A physiological approach is taken, allowing a direct application of the concepts to practical issues in drug therapy. Features include: self-assessment questions for each chapter to test comprehension of concepts; a glossary of the symbols used and of important pharmacokinetic relationships; use of equations to describe the physiological factors underlying important pharmacokinetic processes; clear diagrams to enhance understanding. Initially published as a series of articles in the Australian Prescriber, Pharmacokinetics Made Easy was written to address a lack of conceptually accessible material. Concentrating on the concepts important for an informed and rational approach to drug dosing and therapy, Pharmacokinetics Made Easy is a key, practical reference.
