Editorial Reviews

Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: Jeffrey L. Apfelbaum, MD (University of Chicago Pritzker School of Medicine)
Description: In this sixth edition, the authors and editors have employed a variety of educational methods to provide an extraordinarily comprehensive overview of the medical specialty of anesthesiology. The previous edition was published in 2006.
Purpose: The editors have stated that the prime goal of this book from its conception was "to develop a textbook that support supports efficient and rapid acquisition of knowledge." As the editors so aptly note, in reality, this edition is "a series of interconnected publications using the printed word, electronic medium, and the Internet." For example, this is the first anesthesia textbook to employ podcasting as one of the newest methods to rapidly transmit clinically relevant information.
Audience: It is designed to serve as a reference for students, anesthesia trainees, practicing anesthesiologists, and other physicians who are in need of a reference for perioperative care. For students and trainees, the book can provide in-depth background that will assist in the preparation for board examinations. For practicing anesthesiologists, it is intended to provide lifelong learning and will serve as an excellent medium to prepare for recertification.
Features: The book is organized into eight major sections with the first four ("Introduction to Anesthesiology", "Scientific Foundations of Anesthesia," "Anatomy and Physiology," "Anesthetic Agents, Adjuvants, and Drug Interaction") designed to provide a foundation for patient care. The last four sections ("Preanesthetic Evaluation and Preparation," "Anesthetic Management," "Anesthesia for Surgical Subspecialties," and "Perioperative and Consultative Services") provide more detailed information about perioperative patient management. The editors have assembled 141 individual authors with expertise in basic science, translational science, and clinical medicine; the collective expertise of these authors makes them exceptionally well qualified authorities in the field. The book has undergone significant revision and new chapters have been added on inflammation, wound healing, and infection as well as echocardiography.
Assessment: This is an extremely well-written and comprehensive book. It will be an invaluable addition to the library of any practitioner of anesthesiology.

Rom A. Stevens
This is the third edition of a multiauthored book, last published in 1989, that covers the entire specialty of anesthesiology. A total of 100 authors contributed, and approximately 30 percent of the chapters are new since the second edition. The purpose is to provide residents and experienced practitioners with a contemporary textbook of anesthesiology, emphasizing rapid acquisition of information pertinent to patient care. By and large, these objectives are met. The target audience is stated to be both residents and experienced practitioners. However, the most likely readers of this book will probably be anesthesia residents. All the authors are recognized experts in their various subspecialty areas of anesthesiology. The quality and number of illustrations are adequate. The references are up-to-date. The table of contents and index are adequate. The overall appearance of the book is adequate. There are no particularly unique features of this book. This book will prove most useful to anesthesia residents studying for their board examinations, because it provides an abbreviated overview of the entire specialty. Since the previous edition was published in 1989, many changes have occurred in the specialty, necessitating this update. I highly recommend it to anesthesia residents as well as to departmental libraries.
JAMA
Praise for previous editions:
"This edition brings this work to a new standard of currency and completeness. The anesthesiologist seeking a reference text that contains information in a format easy to use and comprehensive in content would do well to consider this as a first choice.
Anesthesiology
...the editors state their goal for this text: to `supply both residents and experienced anesthesiologists with a contemporary textbook of anesthesiology, emphasizing rapid acquisition of information pertinent for patient management in a comprehensive, up-to-date, single-volume book'...The editors have met their goal...
Booknews
Highlighting new paradigms for OR management and cost containment, this new edition contains 57 chapters by anesthesiologists at university hospitals across the US. Topics include hazards such as latex allergy; drug interactions and anesthesia; newer monitoring techniques, including transesophageal echocardiography and transcranial Doppler; anesthesia for minimally invasive procedures; anesthesia for the geriatric patient; anesthesia for patients with rare and coexisting diseases; office-based anesthesia; management of acute postoperative care; and value-based anesthesia practice, resource utilization, and operating room management.

    The index is not selectable and the pages listed in the index do

    The index is not selectable and the pages listed in the index do not correspond with the nook book. So if you have to look anything up you just have to use the search option and/or the table of contents. If I would have know this I wouldn't have bought this book on nook.
