This scholarly review of hypertension, prostaglandins, and cardiac dysrhythmias neglects atherosclerosis, cerebrovascular diseases, and peripheral vascular diseases. Inotropic drugs are allotted only 2.5 pages and one table, but prostacyclin and thromboxane pharmacology in hemostasis have 15 pages as well as 65 other pages on prostaglandin pharmacology.
The introductory chapter swiftly reviews basic autonomic pharmacology. The beginner will be lost, but the slightly out-of-date cardiologist will welcome the pace and the excellent current references. The alpha, beta, serotonin, histamine, cholinergic, and dopaminergic receptors are each divided into two clinically useful types, rather than the pedantic confusion of further subdivisions.
