Editorial Reviews

Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: Thomas W. Cutter, MD, MAEd (University of Chicago Pritzker School of Medicine)
Description: This book provides an excellent, current, and thorough, if not exhaustive, review of the more salient concerns in anesthetizing the patient with neurologic disease. It was also first published in 1989 as The Manual of Neuroanesthesia.
Purpose: The purpose is to provide an introduction or a handy reference for neuroanesthesia. Considering the complexity of the field and the changes in it, the book succeeds admirably.
Audience: This book is aimed at the novice and the experienced practitioner who include neurosurgical patients in their practice. Its building-block format permits a direct, "cut to the chase" approach for those with prior knowledge who are approaching a specific problem, while also providing a brief but remarkably complete background for those who need to acquire the basic knowledge to safely care for the neurosurgical patient.
Features: The illustrations, tables, and graphs are adequate and important supplements to the text. The references reflect the typical lag time between submission and publication and, as such, are timely. The small size of the book means that it will be kept where it is most useful and accessible (e.g., a hip pocket or anesthesia cart), and the color means that it will be found when it is needed.
Assessment: This book will be more appropriately kept in the operating room as opposed to the library. It will provide the practitioner with the theoretical and practical knowledge, independent of background, needed to safely provide a neuroanesthetic and to intelligently discuss the less-than-esoteric concerns of the neurosurgical patient.
