Primary Anesthesia

Primary Anesthesia

by Maurice H. King




Written for nonspecialists, this useful manual provides sufficient detail to allow inexperienced clinicians and medical students to give an anesthetic in an unexpected or emergency situation. The author covers the use of ether with air as a carrier gas; ketamine, epidural, and subarachnoid anesthesia; various methods of local and regional anesthesia; intubation; and the use of relaxants. There is also a chapter on primary intensive care, and an appendix featuring a detailed list of equipment.
