Edited and written by leading educators, this popular book for the anesthesiology rotation has been thoroughly updated and retains its distinctive case-based approach.  The Second Edition features a thorough revision of the discussion of ventilator management, improved coverage of extubation criteria, and the latest guidelines and algorithms for preoperative assessment.   Considerations for quality improvement and patient safety have been expanded throughout the book.  Anesthesia Student Survival Guide provides a complete introduction to the specialty and is aimed at medical and nursing students as well as practitioners in critical care who seek a succinct overview of anesthesiology. From reviews of the First Edition: “…an excellent resource for the student wanting a deeper understanding of what is essentially a post-graduate subject, for example, an elective student.” --British Journal of Anaesthesia   “This is an excellent introduction to the specialty for third-year medical students, covering a broad range of material at a sufficient depth to be useful, and providing a good structure for a comprehensive course of self-directed study.” --Doody’s Review Service “The writing style is uniformly strong, which makes the book easy to read.…[It] serves not only as an excellent resource for students and other learners seeking an introduction to anesthesia but also as a platform for teaching the basics. It will be a welcome addition to the libraries of teaching departments.” --Canadian Journal of Anesthesia  .
