Back cover copy

Anaesthesia and its administration is a complicated topic and this new edition covers not only the medical aspects, but also the legal, ethical and practical consequences before, during and after surgery. The use of anaesthetics and analgesics is further broken down into their use in dental, ophthalmic and thoracic surgery among others, and the impact of various diseases and disorders on their efficacy. Practitioners will also find advice on how to deal with complications and emergencies and techniques for managing pain.

Review quote

"I believe this manual will be particularly useful for specialty and referral facilities where advanced procedures such as laparoscopy, thoracoscopy, and MRI are performed. Additionally, the depth and breadth of the information contained in this manual will help veterinarians, students, and technicians prepare for both routine and challenging anesthetic cases." (Journal of the American Veterinary Medical Association December 2016)
