Twenty-six persons have contributed to this book. They have attempted to discuss in great detail the postoperative management of patients in their institutions who have undergone various procedures. The most extensive chapter deals with the management of circulation, shock, respiration, and nutrition. This book should be of value to an institution that desires to set up a recovery room, and it should be useful as a means of evaluating a recovery room already in existence. Moreover, the book should be instructive to surgeons who do not have the facilities described but who might wish to use some of the measures advocated in the postoperative care of patients. The book is well indexed, is printed on excellent paper, and is illustrated extensively. The sources of some of the illustrations are not adequately indicated by the authors.
