Editorial Reviews

Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: George Girardi, MD (University of Chicago Pritzker School of Medicine)
Description: This book, written by U.S. and Canadian contributors, is the third edition of a book that intends to familiarize physicians with advances in patient care monitoring.
Purpose: The book's purpose is to educate physicians on the physiology, pharmacology, and technical aspects of monitoring devices. Thus, the scientific basis of monitoring is described so that the reader can appropriately utilize all available devices. The practice of anesthesia has witnessed multiple advances over the last decade, which demonstrates the need for educational material for practicing physicians to remain current.
Audience: The book is directed toward attending and resident anesthesiologists (or anyone who works with critically ill patients). The content is appropriate.
Features: The appearance is that of a standard medical textbook. It is adequately illustrated in interpretation of data and technical aspects.
Assessment: The book is a quality review of currently available monitoring devices and appropriate usage. References current until 1990 are also provided for more intensive review.

Booknews
An essentially rewritten, rather than simply updated, clinical reference-text that focuses on understanding the physiology and pharmacology behind monitoring, as well as on the process of monitoring itself. It avoids equations and technical language; emphasizes the clinical application and usefulness of the methods; describes pitfalls; separates simple, moderate, and more complex monitoring; and approaches monitoring according to physiologic systems or subspecialties of anesthesiology rather than by techniques or technology.
