A clinically relevant, reader -friendly text covering everything the anesthesia provider must know about physiology.
This well-illustrated new resource is the most concise and high-yield presentation of physiology topics available to the anesthesia provider. The authors (who are both educators and clinicians) deliver a complete overview of physiology, but, since this book is written for the anesthesia provider, the bulk of the text is dedicated to cardiovascular and respiratory physiology. Clinical Physiology in Anesthetic Practice distinguishes itself from general medical physiology books by the inclusion of case studies and clinical correlation boxed inserts that emphasize key fact that relate to real-world practice.

- The author are experienced educators and clinicians, and know how to present difficult concepts in the most interesting and reader-friendly manner possible
- Key Points summarize must-know information, providing an excellent framework for board review
