Review quote

"The authors of this book have struck the ideal balance between breadth and depth of coverage. Point-of-Care Ultrasound contains nearly all the detail of a textbook, yet it reads and functions like a handbook. The included electronic version is an exceptional format to view the book. In general, this book has something to offer healthcare providers across specialties regardless of their level of ultrasound expertise.? -Daniel A. Sweeney, MD (Critical Care Medicine, August 2015, Volume 43, Number 8)
