"This pocket-sized book describes how to evaluate the interaction of a patient with a ventilator, using physiological tracings generated by the machine. ... Practitioners using mechanical ventilation with all degrees of sophistication may benefit from this book from senior respiratory therapists. ... This is a unique and important contribution. The concise presentation takes readers from the basics to recognition of important clinical problems." (David J. Dries, Doody's Book Reviews, May, 2018)
"The textbook is a concise, well-written attempt to describe multiple aspects of liver transplant for the anesthesiologist. ... This book is a must-have for any fellow or practitioner engaged in liver transplantation and would be an invaluable tool to introduce rotating residents to the specialty."
