A short, heavily illustrated guide to indirect and direct monitoring of arterial pressure, and direct monitoring of central venous pressure and other clinically important fluid pressure measurements. Its greatest value is probably in the drawings of procedural steps. The text is at times given to silly remarks and shows signs of incompetent proofreading, as in the opening quotation in the preface: "'It's a small step for a man but a giant step for manking.'" [sic].
