"This edition, updated in light of recent technological advances, provides an up-to-date, easy-to-readreview, and contains sufficient detail to make it suitable as a single volume manual for cardiac surgical trainees or nurses." ( Cardiology News , 2012) "Surgeons are frequently asked to recommend a text that can be used to guide the care of their patients. This comprehensive text is the standard by which any other text should be judged. Every intensive care unit that treats adult open heart surgery patients should have several copies readily available at all times." (Critical Care Medicine, 1 October 2011) "This fifth edition of a popular manual has been extensively revised. It is densely packed with information in its 820 ages. . . Young trainees in cardiac surgery, anaesthesia and intensive care, will find this an invaluable resource." (British Journal of Cardiology, 1 August 2011)
