Abstract

This excellent little book does not deal at all with the actual technic of putting patients to sleep and of smoothly controlling anesthesia. It deals rather, as the name would imply, with the physiology of the circulation and of respiration, especially from the standpoint of those disturbances which may occur under anesthesia. An example is the discussion of how and why a patient whose respiratory center is depressed may stop breathing altogether if he is given inhalations of oxygen. The material is clearly and simply presented and should be useful, not only to anesthesiologists, but to physicians in general.
