Ideal perioperative management of surgical patients requires proper and complete knowledge of the various drugs used in the preoperative, intraoperative and postoperative period. This includes pharmacological knowledge of the different general anaesthetics, local anaesthetics, neuromuscular blocking drugs, empirical antibiotics, intravenous fluids, and various chronic drug therapy that the surgical patient might be on. The concepts underlying the use of these drugs in the perioperative period are vast and interesting. A proper understanding of these concepts will bring about a better perioperative outcome for the surgical candidate.
