Review quote

Review of the fourth edition: 'This book, which is now a 'classic', is an essential part of the armamentarium of the trainee anaesthetist . . . It is clear that this book will remain essential reading for all candidates who are attempting the new Primary and Final FRCA examinations, and they will find it has something to say on almost all aspects of the published syllabus relating to anaesthetic equipment, physics and clinical measurement . . . highly readable and provides an excellent start for the trainee.' Todays Anaesthetist, 1996show more
