Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"Although not a technical manual, this book does have many salient points that can be taken to the bedside. This is a comprehensive book covering all aspects of the subject in an exhaustive fashion. It is highly readable and the illustrations are generally outstanding and well described. As the field of airway management has evolved in recent years and includes such adjuncts as ultrasound and video laryngoscopy, the new edition is welcome. It continues the tradition of serving the airway practitioner as a foundation of knowledge in this evolving field." - Martin H Dauber, MD(University of Chicago Pritzker School of Medicine) Doody 5 star rating!
Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: Martin H Dauber, MD (University of Chicago Pritzker School of Medicine)
Description: Airway management is a complex field, with many options and a plethora of equipment readily available to a variety of practitioners. Updated by Carin Hagberg, the third edition of this comprehensive book on this vitally important subject presents topics not even mentioned in the previous edition of 2007.
Purpose: It presents each and every technique and device related to airway management in a thorough and complete manner.
Audience: Although intended primarily for anesthesia personnel, this book can be a wonderful reference for medical and respiratory students and physicians who may encounter the need to maintain airways (emergency department, critical care, pediatric intensive care physicians, etc). The original editor, Dr. Benumof, was the leader in the field of airway management. Dr. Hagberg, his protégé and a master of the field in her own right, has assembled chapter authors that include many who are well known in the field, and some of whom are novices. Despite this, there is a great deal of consistency in writing and style throughout the book that makes it flow well.
Features: The book covers every topic that relates to invasive (e.g. endotracheal tubes, surgical, retrograde) and noninvasive (e.g. mask ventilation, mechanical ventilation, extubation) airway management. Many of these are familiar to most anesthesiologists, but some are so rare that if not discussed in this book, they might not be understood. This book is not designed simply for the management of situations of difficult airways, although an entire section is devoted to this topic (from the American Society of Anesthesiologists' perspective). The book has an online complement that includes, among other resources, several videos of good quality from one practitioner's perspective.
Assessment: Although not a technical manual, this book does have many salient points that can be taken to the bedside. In contrast to The Difficult Airway: An Atlas of Tools and Techniques for Clinical Management, by Glick, et al. (Springer, 2013), which is an excellent source of techniques, this is a comprehensive book covering all aspects of the subject in an exhaustive fashion. It is highly readable and the illustrations are generally outstanding and well described. As the field of airway management has evolved in recent years and includes such adjuncts as ultrasound and video laryngoscopy, the new edition is welcome. It continues the tradition of serving the airway practitioner as a foundation of knowledge in this evolving field.
