Complete Clinical and Practice Management Guidance in one handy reference!

"Using an evidence-based approach, the authors provide a balanced and novel view of anesthesia techniques applied to the ambulatory setting. Their ultimate goal is to impart to others the knowledge of numerous experts, thereby improving ambulatory anesthesia outcomes. It succeeds in outstanding fashion....Although the book is aimed at anesthesiologists, medical students and other students of anesthesia will find many of the historical references interesting. It works on many levels, including current accepted practice, a historical perspective and a glimpse of the future. The contributor list reads like a 'Who's Who' in ambulatory anesthesia."--Doody's Review Service
