The success of the algorithm approach as a means of teaching management strategies has led to their increasing use in teaching texts. In this book, up-to-date strategies are presented in an algorithm format enabling easy review, access, and revision. The algorithms deal with common anaestheticproblems and include reminders of dangers and controversies. Each algorithm is combined with a page of short notes and a small number of selected references. The text is intended to be an easily accessible reference for practising anaesthetists. In addition, it would act as a useful guide forentrance to the FRCA examinations as well as an in-theatre prompt.
