The Anesthesia Technician and Technologist’s Manual

Description from the publisher: The first of its kind, The Anesthesia Technician and Technologist’s Manual, fills a critical gap in the material available to support the education and training of anesthesia technicians and technologists.

Laughing and Crying about Anesthesia: A Memoir of Risk and Safety

by Gerald Zeitlin, MD

Description from the author: Laughing and Crying about Anesthesia is the memoir of an anesthesiologist who lived through an era in which the specialty metamorphosed from a primitive and empirical non-science to the sophisticated care that surgical patients benefit from today. When Dr. Zeitlin gave his first anesthetic in the United Kingdom in October 1958, one patient died every 1,500 applications.

He gives the reader an intimate view of what actually occurs when a patient in surgery receives general anesthesia. He believes this is the first book to do this. Dr. Zeitlin recounts his own early frightened, untutored days and continues with illuminating and powerful stories about the operating room and its inhabitants both in private practice and later, when we emigrated to America, in academic hospital departments.
