Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

A 'must-have' for every trainee in anaesthesia ... should be a core text for every department delivering anaesthesia services to children.

British Journal of Anaesthesia

"The text is well written, lucid and uniform in style ... This edition will be a useful addition in the library of most anaesthetic departments where it will provide a useful resource for paediatric physiology and pharmacology for junior trainees and a significant resource for anaesthetists involved in primary anaesthetic care of children."

Anaesthesia and Intensive Care, vo. 36, No. 3, May 2008
