Review quote

"thorough treatment of the current state of pediatric anesthesia, useful as a learning guide for trainees and a comprehensive reference resource for practitioners."

"Overall, this is a massive updated contribution to the field of pediatric anesthesiology. It truly is a "bible" that has almost everything one would want or need to practice comfortably in this field (except the experience). Regrettably, this field changes so quickly that one can only hope the editors and contributors are already at work on the next edition."
