Recent Advances in Anaesthesia and Intensive Care, volume 24 is the latest book in this very successful and long-established series (originally entitled Recent Advances in Anaesthesia and Analgesia) to present a collection of cutting-edge topics for anaesthetists. It has been compiled by some of the world's leading authorities in their subjects and builds on the successful formula of the previous volumes. As the title suggests, these latest volumes have increased input from the field of intensive care, including a particularly topical chapter on intensive care outreach. Other chapters include deaths under anaesthesia, use of simulators in anaesthesia, and transoesophageal echocardiography. Trainee and practising anaesthetists and intensivists at all levels will find this book extremely relevant in their daily clinical practice.

• All chapters topical - directly relevant to daily clinical practice • More on Intensive Care • Concise practical chapters, well illustrated and referenced

' … the quality of the contributions, the editorial control and the clarity of the type setting and illustration make the book a far more satisfying experience than a sheaf of loose-leaf printouts. All of the articles are well written, generally balanced and well referenced … overall a worthy addition to an excellent series.' Today's Anaesthetist
