The new benchmark in anesthesiology A Doody's Core Title! 4 STAR DOODY'S REVIEW! "This book covers more topics and provides greater detail than other introductory books. Additionally, the quality of the writing makes it easier to follow and understand than most other books."-- Doody's Review Service "Whereas most current texts discuss the pharmacology of intravenous agents, this text is unique in its dedication of entire chapter (chapter 42) to total intravenous anesthesia. This is a refreshing recognition of the utility and potential advantages of total intravenous anesthesia....does an excellent job of covering all the pertinent topics in an organized manner. Like the other comprehensive texts, it is unlikely to be read cover to cover, but provides a superb clinical reference for residents and practicing anesthesiologists.
