Editorial Reviews

'The text is clear and concise ... Armed with Cardiopulmonary Resuscitation, one would have little excuse for not being able to run a calm and well-organised cardiac arrest. I am sure that it will be a valuable addition to the shelves of any training resuscitation officer, but it may not winthe battle for space in the already bulging pockets of the junior doctor's white coat.'L.A. Mitchell, Royal Surrey County Hospital, The Lancet, Vol 341, June 1993
