1. SciTech Book News, February 2011 issue

Developed in the 1960s but not widely available outside of academic university-based hospitals until the past decade, video-electroencephalographic monitoring (VEM) has become less expensive and easier to perform, but references and training for clinicians and technologists have not kept pace. This volume fills that gap by offering clearly focused contributed chapters beginning with the fundamentals of EEG and of digital EEG recording, automated analysis, the practicalities of establishing a VEM monitoring unit, and neurologic and nursing practice in the unit. Following are fully illustrated chapters pertaining to seizures, mimickers of seizures, status epilepticus, and intracranial VEM monitoring. The included DVD contains videos linked to the EEG patterns in the book. Editor Sirven is affiliated with the Mayo Clinic; Stern is with the Geffen School of Medicine at the U. of California, Los Angeles. The book is formatted horizontally (11×8.5 inches) for display of the images and EEGs. (Annotation ©2011 Book News Inc. Portland, OR)

Basic and Clinical Pharmacology, 11th Edition
Katzung, Bertram; Masters, Susan; Trevor, Anthony

Sample Chapter

Professor Hiroyuki Sakurai, MD, Department of Pharmacology of Kyorin
University School of Medicine, Mitaka Tokyo Japan

“I have been using Katzung 10th edition as one of the major textbooks for medical pharmacology course for 3rd year medical students. It was a well balanced text in every aspect; broad coverage without losing readability, detailed but clear-cut description, and basic mechanistic discussion in a clinically relevant fashion.  No doubt Katzung was regarded as a “gold-standard”.

When new 11th edition was delivered to me, I was surprised to see full-color figures and summary tables at the end of most chapters. Because it used a bigger format than the previous edition, it was easier to read, at least less intimidating.  All these changes should help medical students understand key concepts of pharmacology much easier. I would definitely recommend this new edition to my students.  Kudos to the editors and McGraw-Hill who took extra step to improve already a very good textbook.  Now my expectation for future 12th edition is even higher!”
