4.0 out of 5 stars.  Good quick reference or review, September 19, 2014
By chs
When I received this book, I was surprised how small it was--it is truly pocket-sized. This is an advantage for obvious reasons, but also a disadvantage, because it is in outline form and therefore does not have much detail. Also it is missing some basic emergencies as a major topic, like PEA, that should have been included. However, the book has useful information that is easy to access quickly, and is a good review for addressing critical problems. The text appears to have been proof read, because I have not come across typos after reading almost a quarter of it. I would recommend this book as a quick reference or review.

5.0 out of 5 stars.  Well-organized Anesthesia Emergency Topics, February 16, 2013
By Steel (Cleveland, OH USA)
This book does not seek to cover every detail of anesthesia emergencies, but it does deliver a concise and well-organized layout of the most pertinent anesthesia concerns. Bullet points and checklists effectively summarize key concepts.

5.0 out of 5 stars.  Valuable resource, October 27, 2010
The pocket sized Anesthesia Emergencies is a valuable resource for avoiding complications and providing quick response to multiple kinds of anesthetic emergencies. Keith Ruskin and Stanley Rosenbaum have brought together a group of medical contributors, all experts in their selected fields. Each of the 15 chapters from cardiovascular to pediatric to neurological emergencies provides information on presentation, diagnosis, management, prevention and risk factors. Skilled practitioners will find the bullet point checklists clear and concise, with critical information highlighted. Coincidentally I recently read Atul Gawande's newest book, The Checklist Manifesto, which praises the use of checklists in aviation to prevent flight emergencies. Gawande's research in medicine has proven that using checklists in the operating room reduces the rates of infection and preventable deaths. Using the procedures and checklists in Anesthesiology Emergencies is exactly what Gawande advocates to improve safety and reduce medical errors. The information in this book is invaluable and I highly recommend this book to all anesthesia providers.
