"This second edition should be an essential resource for researchers in the field of extraglottic airway management. [I]t shows unambiguouslywhat we know and what we do not about the extraglottic airways. Book of this kind should be used frequently to teach or to acquire skills, rather than just read at libraries...[B]usy clinicians will also find the well-summarized practical guidelines, concluding statements, meta-analysis and quick references useful." British Journal of Anesthesia , 2005
"The volume contains a complete revision of the 1st edition, with 22 chapters describing the mask's use in an exhaustive sampling of applications. The chapters are clearly organized, with a focus on application, troubleshooting, and technique. Case histories, key points, summaries, and exhaustive lists of references are included. New to the second edition are chapters on co-existing disease, specialized LMAs, veterinary use, skill acqusition, other extraglottic airway devices, pathophysiology, and intensive care medicine. The volume is well illustrated with color photos and drawings." SciTech Book News, December 2005
