Pharmacology Books

Pharmacology is a critical branch of study for all EMTs, paramedics, first responders and other rescue professionals. You need to understand not only the role of pharmaceuticals as they pertain to rescue situations, but also the common symptoms and reactions that cause emergencies to occur in the first place. With the right perception of pharmacology and drug administration, you can prevent emergencies from turning into tragedies, but your job requires quick thinking and an adept understanding of life saving treatments. Here you'll find the ultimate selection of pharmacology books, all of which are loaded with the information you need to carry out your work in the most effective ways possible.

Pharmacology Books – It's Not Just About Memorizing Drug Names

Here's a pop quiz for you. Do you know the 10 most commonly used emergency medications? Can you match generic names to brand names? Can you quickly list the intended uses, side effects, dosages and contraindications of all the medications at your disposal? If you're like the majority of rescue professionals, your answer is probably something along the lines of, “I'm pretty knowledgeable,” or, “I know quite a bit, but it's impossible to keep track of everything.”

The fact is, pharmacology is a vastly complex field because there are no handy formulas or methods, and there is certainly no room for guesswork. It's pure memorization. Every drug has its own story, with its own complications and its own fine print, and quite often what we think we understand about a particular drug turns out to be inaccurate or even dangerous upon further study. It's absolutely crucial to remain up to date on your pharmaceutical uses and applications, and with the right pharmacology textbook at your side, you can always be confident that you have the necessary life saving information at your fingertips.
