Drugs, Diseases, and Anesthesia by Ronald J. Stern, a pocket-sized handbook that serves as a companion to a computer software program by the same name, is intended as a systematic ready reference for the anesthesia provider on the firing line. Dividing the book into the three sections suggested by the title, the author presents common and uncommon interactions of anesthetic drugs and techniques with a large number of patient drugs, disease states, and anesthetic agents. The information serves essential concerns in a wide variety of clinical situations but is not intended as a comprehensive reference or textbook of anesthesia practice.
