Editorial Reviews

"Serves both as an introductory text for resident physicians and student nurse anesthetists, as well as an excellent review for the seasoned anesthesiologist or nurse anesthetist...would be useful for anyone involved in airway management, whether the individual is an anesthesiologist, emergency room physician, or intensive care unit physician." Anesthesia & Analgesia (2011), J. Lance Lichtor, MD, University of Massachusetts Medical School
