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 and respiratory medicine, obstetrics, paediatrics, thoracics, neurosurgery, and also airway problems. Each section is sub-divided into presentation, immediate management, investigations, risk factors, exclusions, and subsequent management. These subsections are then expanded upon in bullet format. Additional sections cover practical procedures such as how to insert a chest drain or how to administer intra-osseous fluids, problems encountered in the recovery period, plus a concise drug formulary listing the doses of emergency drugs and infusions is included.

...excellent for the examination candidate, because not only are the critical incidents well-addressed, but it teaches a disciplined, logical approach...if trainees stick to this structure, they will not go far wrong in the oral examination and in real life. (British Journal of Anaesthesia)
This is a nice introduction to the management of emergency situations encountered by anaesthesiologists. It would be good reading for students and residents in anaesthesia, and its contents should be hardwired in trainees before they set out to practice on their own. (Doody's Journal)
Andrew McIndoe is Chairman of the Bristol Medical Simulation Centre.
