Editorial Reviews

Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: Martin H Dauber, MD (University of Chicago Pritzker School of Medicine)
Description: In addition to thoroughly covering all of the varied types of devices, monitoring equipment, and gas delivery systems used in anesthesia practice, this book also reviews the basic scientific principles in each area.
Purpose: Changes in operating room equipment have been profound over the last 25 years, and the authors endeavor to provide an up-to-date book on the scientific and technical details of modern anesthesia practice. This is a noble goal in this "plug-and-play" world where this important information can be overlooked. The authors meet their goals with this superior effort.
Audience: All practitioners of anesthesia and those who support our clinical needs will benefit from many or all of the sections. Because equipment and technology have been changing regularly, both experienced practitioners and trainees will benefit from this book. Though many of the chapter authors are junior faculty or residents, the editing has produced consistently high quality chapters.
Features: Although the book is not organized into sections, there is a clear division among chapters. Chapters on airway equipment dominate the book and appear first, followed by chapters on invasive/noninvasive monitoring including TEE and depth monitors. Chapters on ultrasound for regional anesthesia and IV pumps come next. Superb chapters on a wide variety of subjects, such as sterilization, third-world and war situations, and point-of-care testing, round out the book.
Assessment: Until now, Dorsch and Dorsch "wrote the book" on anesthesia equipment (Understanding Anesthesia Equipment, 5th edition (Lippincott Williams & Wilkins, 2008)), which was the only source of this information for decades. The MGH Textbook of Anesthetic Equipment (and the related Expert Consult website) brings us into the next era. This is a complete, interesting, well-illustrated book that will appeal to techie types as well as those who just have a need to know despite an aversion to technical issues.
