The key to paediatric anaesthesia is to learn the skills to be confident about managing a child’s airway. Once mastered, you can then start to enjoy working with children and learning the art of managing their anxiety and that of their parents.
Written by clinical, full-time paediatric anaesthetists, this is the one book that gives both all the information for specialist exam preparation, and the knowledge of contemporary paediatric anaesthesia that will stand a consultant anaesthetist in good stead.
