It is truly an essential text for those providing operative care to children who have syndromic diseases."--Doody's Review Service

Editorial Reviews

"This book is a fantastic quick reference to possible anesthetic implications for a specific syndrome and the implication need not be limited to practices that care solely for children...This book is an incredibly ambitious undertaking by the authors who are to be commended on creating a very helpful new resource."--Anesthesia & Analgesia
