A well-established textbook on preanesthetic consultation and medication; preparation for anesthesia; inhalation, intravenous, and local anesthesia; supportive intravenous therapy; anesthesia in obstetrics, pediatrics, and outpatient practice; complications including hypotension, electrical hazards, fire, and explosions; and special aspects of anesthetic care including cardiopulmonary resuscitation, postoperative care, inhalation therapy, and respiratory care. Most of the text is given to the main concerns of the anesthesiologist; but the chapters on intravenous therapy and methods, cardiopulmonary resuscitation, inhalation therapy, and respiratory care will be useful to trainees and internists seeking authoritative but short introductions to these topics. Detailed subject index. Recommended for our clinical libraries.
