Doody's Review ServiceReviewer: Michael F O'Connor, MD (University of Chicago Pritzker School of Medicine)
Description: This companion to Stoelting's Anesthesia and Co-Existing Disease, 6th edition, provides critical information in a portable, handbook format
Purpose: It is designed to serve as a clinical handbook for anesthesiologists who find themselves with little time to prepare for a patient's care. The content mirrors that of the parent textbook, and covers all of the essential topics.
Audience: The audience is anyone giving anesthesia, including residents, attending physicians, and CRNAs. It is not intended to be a resource practitioners can use to learn in detail about co-existing disease, but instead is a summary of what they need to know at the bedside.
Features: This book covers the entire domain of co-existing disease. In our PowerPoint world, it is presented in easy-to-read outline format. Every chapter contains highly useful tables. It also includes a select number of highly useful figures and flow charts. Experienced practitioners will find that it contains everything they need to know at the bedside, and nothing that they don't.
Assessment: This should be in every anesthesia library and available to practitioners everywhere that anesthesia is administered.
