Gain the knowledge and skills you need for clinical anesthesia practice! Written specifically for nurse anesthetists, Nurse Anesthesia, 7th Edition provides a solid foundation in scientific principles and evidence-based practice. Coverage includes a review of pharmacology, pharmacokinetics and pharmacodynamics, drug receptor concepts, intravenous agents, neuromuscular blocking agents, and more, followed by a discussion of anesthesia equipment and clinical monitoring, preoperative preparation of the patient, and the use of anesthesia for a variety of surgical procedures. From a team of expert authors led by Sass Elisha, Jeremy S. Heiner, and John J. Nagelhout, this text helps you prepare for certification and also provides a key reference for CRNAs to use in daily practice.
