Editorial Reviews

Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: Michael F O'Connor, MD (University of Chicago Pritzker School of Medicine)
Description: This handbook of difficult airway management is intended for physicians.
Purpose: It is intended to be a portable, useful, complete compendium of the information needed to manage the difficult airway in a variety of settings, including the operating room, emergency room, and intensive care unit. The editor of this book this goal better than any other thus far.
Audience: The intended audience is practicing physicians, but residents, fellows, nurse practitioners, physician's assistants, and students will all find this handbook helpful and extremely informative. Contributors include most of the nationally and internationally recognized experts in airway management.
Features: Airway assessment is covered in appropriate detail. The discussions of procedures are complete with illustrations, photographs, and detailed guidelines for how to proceed in real-world situations. Very useful tables and algorithms are also included where appropriate. The chapters on extubation and airway management in the ICU are excellent. The discussion of the available equipment is comprehensive and concise.
Assessment: This is an outstanding book, which should be in the library of every physician who might be asked to participate in the management of the difficult airway. I suspect you will find it in the pockets of many lab coats. Every ER, OR, hospital, and anesthesia library should have a copy.
