Editorial Reviews

Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: Jeffrey L. Apfelbaum, MD (University of Chicago Pritzker School of Medicine)
Description: This is the third edition of a text that has long served as the "benchmark" against which all fundamental textbooks on the practice of anesthesia are judged.
Purpose: The purpose is to provide a concise source of information for the entire spectrum of students of anesthesia — medical students, physicians-in-training, and the established practitioner. It is designed to succinctly present what the authors judge to be the most pertinent information of current importance to the specialty. This edition is timely and easily meets its objectives of providing a solid up-to-date and compact review of the "basics" of anesthesia today.
Audience: The book is targeted primarily for students and physicians-in-training in that it summarizes the current basics in anesthesia in a superb, easy-to-read format. Additionally, it will be extremely useful to practitioners who wish to quickly review the key fundamentals of the specialty of anesthesiology. The authors are internationally renowned leaders in the field of anesthesiology.
Features: The book is well organized with numerous summary charts, tables, graphs, and photographs. The references are current and adequate in number for this type of textbook; they direct the reader to classic articles and more detailed discussions of specific topics.
Assessment: This is an extraordinarily useful book for students, trainees, and practitioners in the field of anesthesiology. Unlike the previous editions, this edition reflects the emergence of new subspecialties important to the field of anesthesiology, including acute postoperative pain management, organ transplantation, and anesthesia for procedures performed outside the operating room. In summary, it is a "must buy" for any student, trainee, or established practitioner who wishes to own a text that succinctly presents the current pertinent information relevant to the specialty of anesthesiology.

An introductory textbook that provides both students and practitioners with concise information pertinent to the wide spectrum (operating room, intensive care, pain management, cardiopulmonary resuscitation) of the practice of anesthesiology. Unlike the previous two editions (1984 and 1989), this edition reflects the emergence of acute postoperative pain management, organ transplantation, and anesthesia for procedures performed outside the operating room as important components of the anesthesiologist's professional practice.
