Although the author lists her name simply as Alex Dugdale, Dr. As the principal author of this well written text, Dr. The chapters within this book are concise, yet thorough in the explanations of the principles of anesthesia, drug choices, mechanisms of action, etc. Chapters are organized into short, to the point specific concepts making this a valuable text to have on the shelf in the clinic setting. It is a book that allows for ease in finding specific information such as is seen in the chapter on Troubleshooting Some of the Problems Encountered in Anaesthetized Patients.
Answers to the self-test questions can be found at the end of the book. I personally found the chapters discussing Anesthesia Machines and Systems to be quite helpful as well as the chapter on Blood Gas Analysis. This is a text that I will definitely keep on my bookshelf at the clinic as a general study guide to use as well as a text that I would use as a reference for specific cases. I feel that it is a book that technicians and practitioners alike would benefit from having close at hand in clinical situations.
For students, it is a great resource as well as textbook. Publisher Wiley-Blackwell
