    Review:

    "The numerous tips, references and advide provided in the book should allow student nurses to pass their anesthesiology exam with flying colours but make sure you don't store it too far away. Daily practice will provide you with reasons to dive into it!"

    Veterniary Today, December 2010

    'This is the fourth edition of this book. Topics such as application of time contraints, physiology of oxygen transport and interpretation of the capnogram are clearly explained with the use of examples, making their inclusion relevant and appropriate. Additionally, many of the figures are available to download for free following regestration at the publisher's website. Throughout the text, a recurring theme is the use of guidelines for when to seek advice from the supervising veterinarian, the importance of communication skills, documentation of information and problem solving. This approach emphasises a team approach, while acting as a reminder that ultimate patient responsibility lies with the veterinarian.

    In summary, this text can be recommended as an extremely useful addition to a nurse's/technician's personal  or practice library. The clarity of explanation and breadth of topics also lend it well as a refresher for practicing veterinarians.'
