Editorial Reviews

Alan Klock
This book reviews the basic science and important clinical elements of anesthetic delivery. The book uses brief case reports as a framework to achieve this goal. This is the second edition; the first edition was published in 1989. This book attempts to provide an understanding of the scientific elements that formulate the basis of modern anesthetic care. Although there are several books that provide either patient care guidelines or a review of the basic science of anesthesiology, this book attempts to link these two elements in a concise form. These are worthy objectives and largely they are met. This book is written for anesthesiologists. The primary audience is anesthesia residents and those preparing for the oral board examination. The author states that the book is also intended for veteran anesthesiologists. This book may be helpful for practicing anesthesiologists who wish to review some case scenarios and areas outside their usual clinical practice. The book uses several tables and boxes to transmit information in a concise fashion. The book is sparsely but appropriately illustrated with black-and-white line drawings. The chapters have few references, but the references listed are either excellent reviews or landmark articles in the topic being reviewed. One of the unique features of the book is that it presents a case and then poses several questions before discussing the case. This forms an excellent basis for self-evaluation and review before oral board examination. This is a high-quality book that could be an important addition to any departmental or personal library. The second edition is updated and reflects current thinking on many previously controversial topics. Thisis significant because many people reading this book will be preparing for board examination, and it is important that they obtain updated information.

A revised, updated, and expanded clinical reference on the theoretical and practical aspects of anesthesia practice. Organized by organ system, and within organ system by diseases, the disease entities selected for presentation represent classic problems in the practice of anesthesia and are culled from actual cases. This edition uses the same question-and-answer format as the first edition of 1989. Although the most important clinical problems are repeated, some solutions have changed, and this edition includes more solutions to frequently occurring practical problems. Annotation c.
