From reviews:

"Altogether, this textbook offers an excellent detailed overview of basic principles, mechanics, and physics of technical equipment used in anaesthesia and intensive care medicine." Critical Care, Feb 2014


"This book is excellent. I have read a number of equipment related books and found most of them stale and filled with minutia. Instead this fresh look at equipment really makes it interesting to read and keeps your attention. With sections that give quick answers to how things work, advantages and disadvantages, in an easy to read format you get exactly what you want to know RIGHT away. In addition the full color photos and well done charts really add to the depth of this book.
It is my opinion this may be one of the best books on the market for quick review of anesthesia and critical care equipment. Let's be honest, no one is sitting at home reading equipment books for pleasure so when you NEED the information you likely need it right away. This book does exactly that; easy format, clear and concise information with everything you need to know about a piece of equipment easy to find and within a page or two. I would recommend this to all trainees in anesthesia but also for those providers who like to be prepared in the operating room to deal with any issue that might arise." www.nurse-anesthesia.org, 8 Feb 2014

Equipment in Anaesthesia and Critical Care specifically follows the syllabus published by the Royal College of Anaesthetists and is the perfect guide for candidates studying for their FRCA qualifications.

The book is beautifully illustrated and features high quality colour photographs throughout. The text is engaging and comprehensive, relating each piece of equipment back to its basic physics, mechanics and clinical context. The clear, concise and standardised format means that information is easy to access and perfect for revision. Every major piece of equipment is featured alongside colour photos, reproducible line diagrams, and information on its uses, how it works, pros and cons, and safety considerations.

The authors, all senior registrars in anaesthesia and critical care, appreciate exactly what candidates need to know to pass the FRCA exam. They have identified and tackled difficult subjects which are often glossed over or omitted in other resources, to produce a book that is comprehensive, engaging and to the point. In addition to FRCA candidates, the book is also suitable for operating department practitioners, critical care staff, and physicians with an interest in anaesthesia or critical care.
