Quotes, Reviews or Testimonials

"All in all this handbook excels in its convenient size, comprehensive information in a rapid-access format. It is especially well-suited for the trainee anaesthetist, but the senior anaesthetist will also find the information useful. If there is one book I carry with me to work daily, it is this one."

-- British Journal of Hospital Medicine - Previous edition


As with the previous editions, this new edition will be the essential handbook for anaesthetists, both junior and experienced, for trainees sitting exams, as well as ODPs and nurses involved in theatre area work and pre-assessment. It is the one book for anyone working in anaesthesia to keep to hand at all times!
