Summary

The pages that unfold behind this introduction are full of information for providers of anesthesia services. In some ways, this is a “how to” manual for one of the most misunderstood and difficult practices in medicine. For some, this book will unlock new knowledge and improve clinical practice. For others, it will confirm already acquired information or update knowledge to ensure practice at the forefront of anesthesiology. The transfer of the expertise is seamless, simple, and, by the nature of the publication, created and reviewed by experts.
