Eisenkraft, offers expert, highly visual, practical guidance on the full range of delivery systems and technology used in practice today. It equips you with the objective, informed answers you need to ensure optimal patient safety.

"This is a comprehensive, up-to-date reference textbook covering all aspects of physics and equipment for the modern American anaesthetist. It may be helpful to those studying for American fellowship examinations but is not suited to preparation for the UK FRCA examinations."

Published Reviews

    "This is comprehensive, easy to read, and well indexed. The illustrations, including real-life photos as well as graphs and figures, are outstanding. The time had come for an update, and this edition goes above and beyond. It is an outstanding and vital contribution to the field, and a must-have for all locations where anesthesia is administered."-Martin Dauber, MD(Universityof Chicago Pritzker School of Medicine) Doody Review: 5 stars

    "All areas of the book are beautifully illustrated with some excellent pictures and diagrams. The authors have made a tremendous effort to ensure the book is up-to-date and have included chapters on electrical safety with excellent explanations and diagrams. Unfortunately, learning about American electrical safety systems could be confusing and misleading for the European reader... ...although it does reference European differences throughout."
