Physiologie des Menschen by Schmidt / Lang / Heckmann

"With the 31st edition now available, this is one the few titles that entire generations of medical students have used to learn physiology. And it was the first Springer book I bought when I was a med student. It has come a long way from being a black and white, very text-oriented book to a four-colour title with lots of didactic features, and illustrates perfectly the changes taking place in publishing and the way content is presented.“

This collection of beautiful illustrations and unique pathological studies is as much a work of art as it is a textbook, and was painstakingly created over the course of Dr McAlpine’s career. It still, over 40 years after its publication, represents the best method of helping the trainee cardiologist understand the complex structure that is the human heart.“

Anästhesie und Intensivmedizin für die Fachpflege by Reinhard Larsen

"Before I became an editor at Springer, I qualified as a specialised nurse in anaesthesia and intensive care in 1995. During my training I used the 3rd edition of the book “Anästhesie und Intensivmedizin für Schwestern und Pfleger,” written by Professor Reinhard Larsen. The first edition, published in 1984, was the first book used to teach nursing for anaesthesia and intensive care courses. With over 100,000 copies of the first 8 editions sold, the 9th edition was published in 2016. Not only is the title very successful, its author is also highly respected in the academic community. I am very proud to have had the opportunity to work with this author for over 17 years.“

Die Intensivmedizin by Gernot Marx, Elke Muhl, Kai Zacharowski, Stefan Zeuzem

"Intensive Medicine is a relatively young medical discipline, founded in 1954 by the Danish anaesthetist Björn Ibsen during the polio epidemic in Denmark. Springer’s “Intensivmedizin” was published in the mid 1950s and was one of the first books on the topic. The 12th edition, published in 2016, is available as a print book and an eReference book. Edited by regularly changing opinion leaders, it remains the standard work for intensive medicine in Germany.“
