From the reviews of the Third Edition:

“Airway texts tend to fall into one of two extremes: the oversimplified handbook... or the comprehensive text that can be overburdening to read. Principles of Airway Management is a superb bridge of these two worlds."   --Anesthesia & Analgesia

 “Covers well the basic principles of airway management...I would definitely recommend it for Anaesthetic or Emergency Department Libraries."   -- Anaesthesia + Intensive Care

“A worthy reference for those in any specialty concerned with airway management. It is readable for the student as well as the senior practitioner... [it] should remain a valuable selection on a critical care or anesthesia reference shelf for years to come.”   --Doody’s

Reviews

From the reviews of the fourth edition:

“This is the fourth edition of a comprehensive textbook describing airway management techniques and technology. … Clinicians in anesthesiology, emergency medicine, critical care medicine, surgery, and acute care medicine who deal with airway management issues of patients on a daily basis are an appropriate audience for this work … . With its consistent editorial style, detailed presentation of new airway equipment, and excellent detail on the pediatric airway, this book upholds these high standards.” (David J. Dries, Doody’s Book Reviews, March, 2011)

“The fourth edition of Principles of Airway Management is a comprehensive text of all aspects of the modern-day practice. Each author has written 5 chapters, which results in a consistent presentation. The text is logically organized … . Principles of Airway Management is a wonderful contribution to the specialty of airway management and will have great appeal for anesthesiologists and other medical and paramedical personnel interested in the field and involved in the practice of modern airway management.” (Martin H. Dauber, Journal of the American Medical Association, Vol. 305 (20), May, 2011)

“The fourth edition of this book has changed greatly from the first edition published in 1988. … The three authors have each written five chapters. … serve as a useful reference for day-to-day practice, as well as a revision tool for trainees. … Overall, this book is an in-depth review of airway equipment, strategies and novel approaches. It is well written with excellent diagrams and commentary … . the book is valuable to anaesthetists and those with an interest in airway management throughout the world.” (M. Daunt, Anaesthesia, Vol. 66, 2011)

“For this fourth edition … each chapter was revised, updated and expanded. … The figures are improved by the addition of colour, and many illustrations have been added. … This book is written well, richly illustrated, thoroughly referenced and easy to read. The authors give clear, evidence-based reasoning for their recommendations. Lists, boxes, tables, flow charts and illustrations are used effectively. … This concise and comprehensive review will be useful for all medical and paramedical health-care professionals who have to manage the airway.” (Rajkumar Rajendram and Riaz Khan, British Journal of Hospital Medicine, Vol. 73 (2), February, 2012)

“The fourth edition … is a comprehensive work covering virtually all aspects of the adult and pediatric airway that any professional can hope to learn from a textbook. … well-written. … up-to-date. …Novices and experts alike will gain insight into airway management by consulting this book. ... The book trikes the right balance between theoretical and technical information. …The authors offer the greatest extent of practical ‘how to’ information in a textbook, notably because of the numerous figures.” (Arnaud Robitaille, Canadian Journal of Anesthesia, Vol. 59, July, 2012)
