'... a thoughtfully produced and well-written book ... deserves a slot in all independent anaesthetic practitioners' bookshelves.' British Journal of Anaesthesia Review of previous edition: '... a rare text that is without institutional bias or personal beliefs.' Perfusion Review of previous edition: '... an excellent introductory text book for the trainee in cardiac anaesthesia ... likely to become a classic in the resident or fellow library.'
