Anesthesia Equipment - Elsevier eBook on VitalSource, 2nd Edition
Anesthesia Equipment: Principles and Applications, 2nd Edition, by Dr. Jan Ehrenwerth and Dr. James B. Eisenkraft, offers expert, highly visual, practical guidance on the full range of delivery systems and technology used in practice today. It equips you with the objective, informed answers you need to ensure optimal patient safety.
"This is a comprehensive, up-to-date reference textbook covering all aspects of physics and equipment for the modern American anaesthetist. It may be helpful to those studying for American fellowship examinations but is not suited to preparation for the UK FRCA examinations." Reviewed by: I.Wrench on behalf of the British Journal of Anaesthesia, Feb 2014
