This book provides an easy-to-read introduction to the many topics in cardiac anaesthesia for postgraduate trainees undertaking this important part of their training. It is designed to be comprehensive but concise, as well as being a useful and up-to-date 'refresher' and aide memoire for practising anaesthetists at all levels of experience. It will also serve as a valuable quick reference to all key topics for other theatre-based personnel.
