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 

    • Make informed decisions by expanding your understanding of the physical principles of equipment, the rationale for its use, delivery systems for inhalational anesthesia, systems monitoring, hazards and safety features, maintenance and quality assurance, special situations/equipment for non-routine adult anesthesia, and future directions for the field.
    • Ensure patient safety with detailed advice on risk management and medicolegal implications of equipment use.
    • Apply the most complete and up-to-date information available on machines, vaporizers, ventilators, breathing systems, vigilance, ergonomics, and simulation.
    • Visualize the safe and effective use of equipment thanks to hundreds of full-color line drawings and photographs.
