"This second edition should be an essential resource for researchers in the field of extraglottic airway management. [I]t shows unambiguouslywhat we know and what we do not about the extraglottic airways. Book of this kind should be used frequently to teach or to acquire skills, rather than just read at libraries...[B]usy clinicians will also find the well-summarized practical guidelines, concluding statements, meta-analysis and quick references useful." "British Journal of Anesthesia ," 2005 "The volume contains a complete revision of the 1st edition, with 22 chapters describing the mask's use in an exhaustive sampling of applications. The chapters are clearly organized, with a focus on application, troubleshooting, and technique. Case histories, key points, summaries, and exhaustive lists of references are included. New to the second edition are chapters on co-existing disease, specialized LMAs, veterinary use, skill acqusition, other extraglottic airway devices, pathophysiology, and intensive care medicine. The volume is well illustrated with color photos and drawings." "SciTech Book News," December 2005From the Publisher:
This highly illustrated, comprehensive yet practical guide provides the reader with a concise summary of all knowledge about laryngeal masks and other extraglottic airway devices. Written by a single author to ensure unformity of style, it serves both as a review of the literature and a practical guide for all personnel involved in anesthesia, resuscitation and intensive care. It is an essential resource for researchers in the field of extraglottic airway management.
The second edition is completely revised and updated to cover its greater depth of inquisition and the near tripling of publications since the first edition. It contains essential information and guidelines on basic and advanced uses of the LMA in anesthesiology, with emphasis on its role in management of the difficult airway and resuscitation. Laryngeal Mask Anesthesia: Principles and Practice, second edition, will continue to be an invaluable resource for all those who need to understand, implement and expand their use of this valuable and innovative airway management device.
