Editorial Reviews

Michael F. O'Connor
This is a multiauthor compendium of anesthesia practice, intended to be a companion to the very popular textbook of anesthesia by the same editors. This text is intended to provide anesthesia practitioners and trainees with succinct, up-to-date information in a very readable form. The book is directed toward anesthesia practitioners and trainees. The majority of this book is devoted to tables and figures, which allows the authors to convey a large amount of information very concisely. The first section of the book is a review of the fundamentals of anesthesia science, including a review of the basic pharmacology of the more commonly used drugs in anesthesia. Most of the book discusses the management of anesthesia in the wide variety of clinical circumstances that anesthesia practitioners encounter. The book includes several excellent appendixes, including advanced cardiac life support (ACLS) protocols, an ECG atlas, and a difficult airway algorithm. The appendix of coexisting disease should either be eliminated or expanded, because it is very brief and not very useful. The table of contents is good, and the index is excellent for a handbook of this nature. This is an excellent handbook that anesthesia practitioners of all levels will find very useful.
David J. Dries
This is the third edition of a handbook summarizing the content of the hardbound volume Clinical Anesthesia by the same editors. It also provides appendixes that summarize key medications and resuscitation protocols. The editors created a pocket-sized companion to the larger hardbound text. In addition, reference material for acute care in the operating room or the postanesthesia period is provided. The anesthesia practitioner or trainee may benefit from this handbook. The editors are national authorities in the field and have summarized chapters from the parent text. The handbook can be divided into two parts. The first 52 chapters summarize the content of the parent hardbound text published earlier in 1997. Topics covered include fundamental principles of anesthetics as well as fluid and electrolyte therapy, anesthesia preparation and management, and postanesthesia and consultant practices. The second portion of the handbook includes resuscitation protocols from the American Heart Association, a brief summary of key medications used, and a summary of recent standards of the Anesthesia Society of America (ASA). Chapters are presented in outline form. Bold type identifies major subheadings. Tables are frequent. References are not provided in the handbook but may be found in the parent text. A detailed index with separate citation for tables is included. This is a comfortable, functional companion for the parent text that may be used by the intended audience. Resuscitation protocols and other content represent current thinking in this field. The publisher also has a CD-ROM and softbound review text available to accompany the handbook and its parentvolume.

Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: Jeffrey L. Apfelbaum, MD (University of Chicago Pritzker School of Medicine)
Description: The editors provide an anesthesia handbook in a concise outline format that serves as a companion to their parent textbook, Clinical Anesthesia, 6th edition (Lippincott Williams & Wilkins, 2009).

Audience: It is designed to serve as a frequent and daily reference for students, anesthesia trainees, and practicing anesthesiologists who wish to rapidly access the most current information about the delivery of anesthesia care.
Features: Though pocket-sized, this book is comprehensive and an easy read. It's liberal use of full color reference guides, tables, graphics, and flags in the margins of each page help guide readers through virtually every aspect of perioperative patient care.
Assessment: This is an extremely easy-to-use and well-written handbook of exceptional quality. It will be an invaluable addition to the library of any student or trainee in anesthesiology.
