Published Reviews

    An incredible amount of information is to be found in detailed but concise entries intelligently arranged and cross-referenced. It is an easy-to-use, fast reference text of value to FRCA students, their tutors, jobbing anaesthetists and their assistants.

    There was not much room for improvement from the previous editions of this book, but this has been achieved. Not only aesthetically … but also with the content update and clearer illustrations. We would recommend this book to all anaesthetists in training.

    An invaluable text for those at any stage of training and to those who wish to use it as a ready reference essential addition to any anaesthetic department for both anaesthetists and intensive care practitioners.
