Description

Anaesthesia and analgesia is a constantly advancing field and this new edition has been extensively revised and updated to take account of the latest techniques and considerations. The structure, which has worked so well for the previous editions, has been retained and there are new chapters on pain assessment methods, anaesthesia for MRI and how to manage chronic pain.

Reviews

"I believe this manual will be particularly useful for specialty and referral facilities where advanced procedures such as laparoscopy, thoracoscopy, and MRI are performed. Additionally, the depth and breadth of the information contained in this manual will help veterinarians, students, and technicians prepare for both routine and challenging anesthetic cases." (Journal of the American Veterinary Medical Association December 2016)
