The most engagingly written, clinically relevant overview of the practice of anesthesiology


Hailed as the best primer on the topic, Morgan & Mikhail’s Clinical Anesthesiology has remained true to its stated goal: “to provide a concise, consistent presentation of the basic principles essential to the modern practice of anesthesia.” This trusted classic delivers comprehensive coverage of the field’s must-know basic science and clinical topics in a clear, easy-to-understand presentation. At the same time it has retained its value for coursework, review, or as a clinical refresher.

This Sixth Edition has been extensively revised to reflect a greater emphasis on critical care medicine, enhanced recovery, and ultrasound in anesthesia practice.

Key features that make it easier to understand complex topics:
Rich full-color art work combined with a modern, user-friendly design make information easy to find and remember
Case discussions promote application of concepts in real-world clinical practice
Boxed Key Concepts at the beginning of each chapter identify important issues and facts that underlie the specialty
Numerous tables and figures encapsulate important information and facilitate recall
Up-to-date discussion of all relevant areas of anesthesiology, including equipment and monitors, pharmacology, pathophysiology, regional anesthesia, pain management, and critical care
URLs for societies, guidelines, and practice advisories
