As well as looking at a wide range of conditions, the book also has a section on using ultrasound to guide basic procedures. This book's major strength is that it is practical and concise and has superb illustrations.' Anaesthesia and Intensive Care

'… many excellent colour and black/white illustrations. … I would recommend this small booklet as an excellent starting manual for those in anaesthesia and critical care, as it covers just about everything else you need to know at a basic level. The illustrations are clear, well labelled and I think it would provide a good first read for trainees and established clinicians.' A. R. Bodenham, British Journal of Anaesthesia

'… this well constructed book. … is divided into two main areas: diagnostic ultrasound and procedural ultrasound with an initial chapter on the fundamentals and physics behind ultrasound. The fundamentals chapter … concisely takes the reader through the jargon of ultrasound with clear example pictures and diagrams. … The structure of all the chapters is excellent with good use of diagrams , US images and colour, coupled with a straightforward approach to conducting these scans, posing specific questions that can be answered by ultrasound.' Anaesthesia

'… the authors effectively use drawings to illustrate the anatomy and include several images of normal and abnormal for each finding. … The Manual of Emergency and Critical Care Ultrasound is a good introduction to emergency ultrasound. It is clear, fits in your pocket and provides useful information covering both the bread and butter applications as well as more advanced topics and skills.' Annals of Emergency Medicine

'This is a concise, clearly written text that describes the contemporary use of sonography in the practice of emergency and critical care medicine. … it is timely and eminently readable for the trainee and practitioner of emergency and critical care medicine.' Critical Care Medicine

'There is a useful troubleshooting section in each chapter providing scanning tips to improve technique and quality of the view. … it would be an interesting read for practising sonographer as well as anyone keen to find out more about the role of US in ED practise.'

The chapters are concise and easy to read with excellent diagrams and images to allow the reader to recognise what is normal and abnormal.
