    Great Starting Point

    This book is a manageable size to read cover to cover when new physicians are starting residency yet detailed enough to provide a strong base of knowledge for continued training in anesthesiology.

    Anesthesia beginner? Then this book is for you!

    Easy to read with colorful, helpful pictures. Great for the new anesthesia provider because it is not extremely detailed in content but defines the main points. This text will help you gain an excellent foundation of anesthesia understanding without being a bore to read.
