Review quote

Reviews of the previous edition: British ?Journal of Anaesthesia a valuable source of information for?those interested in learning about anaesthetic equipment?and how the various types of product operate easy to?read, clearly laid out, and well illustrated. Anaesthesia? the book covers just about everything you need to know about anaesthetic equipment and there is certainly a need for a book such as this attractive, well written and well laid out, and not hugely expensive I would recommend it as an excellent starting manual for novice anaesthetists, as well as for trainees preparing for their FRCA examinations European Journal of Anaesthesiology well written with excellent illustrations and high production values design is most suitable for those preparing for examinations and for trainers alike authors offer a consistent style that minimizes?repetition, while highlighting key points keeps pace with medical innovation in anaesthesiology and should prove a popular text Acta An?sthesiologica Belgica a welcome addition to find its way into the broad and often confusing armamentarium of modern anesthesiologists. warmly welcomed by trainees and teachers alike as it is easy to read, very well illustrated and as a clear and accurate guide to successful techniques. BMA Book Awards - Highly Commended it's easy-to-read with clear diagrams and pictures that reinforce the text to great effectshow more
