Veterinary Anaesthesia, 11th. Edition
by Kathy Clarke, Cynthia Trim
Edition: 11th., 2014
An acknowledged classic in its field, Veterinary Anaesthesia 11th edition has undergone a thorough revision to bring you the latest information in a more accessible format than ever before. The book meets the needs of several groups. For students, it provides basic concepts and ‘how to’ advice on anaesthetizing animals. For veterinarians in practice or those working with laboratory animals it’s an excellent reference that draws on both the considerable experience of the authors and on published scientific data. Those wishing to specialize in veterinary anaesthesia will find it a stimulating introduction to the subject. This revision has been expanded to incorporate evidence-based information, additional chapters on advances in analgesia, anaesthesia of small mammals, fish and wildlife, and updated information on cardiopulmonary cerebral resuscitation (CPCR).
The wide range of species covered and the clear descriptions of basic principles, techniques and equipment, coupled with an extensive literature review, make Veterinary Anaesthesia 11th edition your essential companion whether in classroom or in clinic.
- Presents a range of new chapters from contributors of international repute.
- The evidence base has been expanded and, wherever possible, information is supported by a review of the literature.
- Now in colour throughout, the all-new design includes check-list boxes to facilitate understanding/troubleshooting and increase safety.
