Pre-publication reviews:

"The material forms an excellent basis for junior doctors in critical care and anaesthesia to get a good grounding in the subject, without appearing too scary."

Senior House Officer

"The system-based approach… provides excellent reference material when studying a particular subject, allowing the reader to easily delve into the book when necessary, without having to read from cover-to-cover. It is an excellent revision aid… Much time has gone into eliminating superfluous data so maximal essential information can be conveyed quickly."
