The second edition of this essential handbook provides a practical, accessible guide to all emergency situations encountered during, and immediately following, anaesthesia. It covers the major specialties including cardiovascular medicine, respiratory medicine, obstetrics, and paediatrics, and each section begins with a clear table listing presentation, diagnosis, exclusions, immediate action, and follow up action. These subsections are then expanded upon in bulletformat. Additional sections cover practical procedures such as how to insert a chest drain and how to administer inhaled drugs under anaesthesia, plus a concise drug formulary. The book will provide consultant and trainee anaesthetists, operating department personnel and anaesthetic nurses with a useful source of information and guidance that can be carried in the pocket, handbag or briefcase.
