New to the NMS Clinical Manual series: A concise pocket-sized manual written specifically for medical students on their anesthesia rotation. Written in a structured prose format, the book begins with an introductory overview of the anesthesia process the student is likely to encounter in the form of a clinical case. Various steps and considerations are discussed that involve prescribing, administering and monitoring anesthesia. Internal chapters are skills-based and highly procedural oriented. The final chapter cites a case study that ties together the entire process. It contains only the essential information a student needs to succeed in their brief yet important anesthesia rotation.

    Excellent Pocketbook

    Thought the book was well organized and covered alot of pertinent subjects and algorithms commonly aked about and seen in everyday anesthesia practice. Also the fact that the handbook can easily fit into a lab coat pocket makes it a great quick reference while in the hospital. Although anesthesiology is an enormous subject the pocketbook book fullfills its purpose as a quick reference. I would recommend it to any fourth year on an anesthesia elective.
