Editorial Reviews

From the reviews:"This is a comprehensive yet brief review of perioperative thoracic anesthesia care. . The target audience includes anesthesiologists who don't routinely do thoracic cases and anesthesia residents. . Chapters are brief, to the point, and well illustrated. . provides real life information on thoracic anesthesia and demystifies lung isolation techniques in thoracic surgery. It's a must read for all anesthesia residents and a must have for general anesthesiologists who may end up doing a complicated thoracic case while on call." (Tariq M. Malik, Doody's Review Service, April, 2012)
