"This comprehensive textbook of cardiac anesthesiology integrates basic science with clinically relevant studies to provide an evidence-based approach to the clinical care of cardiac patients. It serves as the authoritative reference for the field and, as such, provides a thorough, referenced, evidence-based treatment of the subject… Overall, this is a worthy update of a fine textbook that will be valuable to practitioners and trainees in cardiac anesthesia, while serving as a reference for anesthesiologists who care for patients with significant cardiac disease. Of note, the significant revisions in this edition make acquiring it a consideration for owners of previous editions."- Muoi A. Trinh, MD, Doody’s 4 Stars!
