The new benchmark in anesthesiology A Doody's Core Title! 4 STAR DOODY'S REVIEW! "This book covers more topics and provides greater detail than other introductory books. Additionally, the quality of the writing makes it easier to follow and understand than most other books."-- Doody's Review Service "Whereas most current texts discuss the pharmacology of intravenous agents, this text is unique in its dedication of entire chapter (chapter 42) to total intravenous anesthesia. This is a refreshing recognition of the utility and potential advantages of total intravenous anesthesia...does an excellent job of covering all the pertinent topics in an organized manner. Like the other comprehensive texts, it is unlikely to be read cover to cover, but provides a superb clinical reference for residents and practicing anesthesiologists. Any new textbook in a field with well-established texts faces an uphill battle, but with its unique organization and clinical focus, Anesthesiology will create many satisfied customers."--Anesthesiology "In summary, Anesthesiology is an excellent choice for all anesthesiology residents and clinicians.
It contains abundant and current information for clinical practice as well as the styles and standards for safety. At present it is the most up-to-date comprehensive text of clinical anesthesiology."--Anesthesia and Analgesia Written and edited by an internationally known team of experts, Anesthesiology gives you a 360-degree view of the field, covering all of the anesthetic considerations, preparations, and procedures for the surgical patient, the pain patient, or the critical care patient. You'll find a unique balance between clinical information, practical clinical procedures, and the molecular and basic scientific underpinnings of anesthesiology practice.
