The third edition of this well-respected book continues to provide succinct coverage of both the basic science and clinical topics in anesthesiology.
The book is organized into five parts: anesthesia equipment and monitors; clinical pharmacology; regional anesthesia and pain management; physiology, pathophysiology, and anesthetic management; and special problems.
Extensive use of case discussions, figures, and tables in each chapter promotes the application of the concepts to everyday practice. Additionally, critical concepts and key words are highlighted to facilitate quick review.
