`Review from previous edition This is a book for the trainee to know cover to cover, dipping into relevant sections to reinforce their experience before, during, and after an anaesthetic. Consultants will also benefit as it provides a highly practical approach to keeping up to date with developments in anaesthesia outside one's area of day-to-day practice.' BMA Medical Book Awards 2007 `This pocket-portable textbook for practicing clinicians provides an excellent compilation of relevant, readable, and insightful information and advice, for both the trainee and experienced consultant.' British Journal of Anaesthesia `"extremely concise, clear and accurate: for perfect use when faced with an unexpected or unfamiliar scenario in theatre. It is also excellent for dipping in and out of whilst preparing for the Final FRCA. It will appeal to a broad spectrum of users from brand new anaesthetic trainees to experienced consultants."'
