Book Reviews

"This book covers the entire domain of co-existing disease. In our PowerPoint world, it is presented in easy-to-read outline format. Every chapter contains highly useful tables. It also includes a select number of highly useful figures and flow charts. Experienced practitioners will find that it contains everything they need to know at the bedside, and nothing that they don't.

This should be in every anesthesia library and available to practitioners everywhere that anesthesia is administered." - Michael F O'Connor, MD(University of Chicago Pritzker School of Medicine)  Doody 4 star rating!
