From the reviews of the Third Edition: “Airway texts tend to fall into one of two extremes: the oversimplified handbook... or the comprehensive text that can be overburdening to read. Principles of Airway Management is a superb bridge of these two worlds." --Anesthesia & Analgesia “Covers well the basic principles of airway management...I would definitely recommend it for Anaesthetic or Emergency Department Libraries." -- Anaesthesia + Intensiv Care “[The book is] a worthy reference for those in any specialty concerned with airway management. It is readable for the student as well as the senior practitioner... [it] should remain a valuable selection on a critical care or anesthesia reference shelf for years to come.” --Doody’s
