This is a well illustrated volume, in which a survey of the subject is given in an elementary but practical manner.
The newer anaesthetic agents, such as cyclopropane, divinyl ether and avertin, are discussed, in addition to the newer local and intravenous ones. An adequate discussion is given of the problem of dental anaesthesia.
The value of helium and carbon dioxide and the technics for their use are discussed. Oxygen therapy is mentioned and stressed; however, detailed discussion is lacking.
A very satisfactory description is given of the indications for and methods of intratracheal anaesthesia and the apparatus used.
