Customer Reviews

Superb Work!

This book is amazing! I have incorporated it into all my curricula: med students, RNs, AAs, junior anesthesia residents, family practice residents, and ACPs.
Well done!

Excellent resource

A tremendous resource that manages to provide relevant and current information without being overly detailed. Very good imbedded video and simple, intuitive navigation. Highly recommended.


This book is the ultimate resource for anyone who is learning how to deliver anesthetics. It is incredible that it is free. Mandatory reading for any medical student or junior resident who will be taking care of these patients no matter what side of the curtain they are on.
