Also available are revised PowerPoint slides for faculty use. The first edition of this popular text is currently being used by eight nurse anesthesia programs throughout the United States and many additional programs plan to adopt the second edition.

  • Includes case studies to illustrate and reinforce knowledge
  • Provides additional end-of-chapter problems focused on anesthesia
