Review Quotes
University of Chicago Pritzker School of Medicine, 28-JAN-07 -- It is an excellent resource for all anesthesia providers from trainees to practicing anesthesiologists familiar with childhood syndromes. The description of each syndrome incorporates an overview of the pathology and relevant clinical findings and highlights the considerations in perioperative management. The glossary at the beginning of the book is a valuable aid in the characterization of these syndromes as are the diagrams reviewing pertinent biochemical pathways. An array of photographs depicts the clinical presentation of various syndromes. The significance of this comprehensive reference extends beyond the pediatric anesthesia practice. This is a valuable resource in the anesthetic management of childhood syndromes.
