Review of the first edition: '... addresses the physiologic and technological considerations that need to be understood to make capnography a clinically useful tool and should be standard reading for those who depend on it as an anesthetic monitor.' Anesthesiology Journal
Review of the first edition: '... a good addition to the reference library of departments of anesthesiology, critical care and emergency medicine.' Canadian Journal of Anesthesiology
'The inclusion of informative chapters on neonatal monitoring, sleep medicine, sedation, and veterinary medicine usefully widens the appeal of the book ... [It] should be seen as an essential specialist reference book for the departmental library that those interested and/or needing to gain knowledge in capnography ... can dip in and out of when required.' British Journal of Anaesthesia
