Reviews

From the reviews:

“The definitive resource for anesthesiologists and critical care physicians who provide perioperative care for the patient with liver disease.” (Ravindea Alok Gupta, Anesthesiology, Vol. 121 (1), July, 2014)

“This is a comprehensive review of every aspect of liver transplant anesthesiology and associated critical care medicine. … The book is directed at anesthesiology and critical care attending physicians who provide care to liver patients. It should serve as the major reference on liver transplantation for fellows training in liver transplant anesthesia or in critical care. … It should also be available in every major medical library as a resource for anyone with an interest in any aspect of this field.” (Michael F. O’Connor, Doody's Book Reviews, April, 2013)
