Abstract

While this is stated to be a second edition, it is to all intents and purposes a new book. As it treats on general anesthesia only, the Schleich infiltration anesthesia, the various local anesthesias and spinal anesthesia are not mentioned. The information on the subject up to date is clearly and succinctly presented. The author considers the abolition of the stage of excitation the most valuable step in the evolution of anesthesia. Like most of the English authors, he advocates closed ether anesthesia, nitrous oxid and ether anesthesia.
