Doody's Core Titles® 2022

"The quality of the book is excellent. I cannot imagine having a better book for reference for my future career as a pediatric anesthesiologist. When I have a patient with a unique disease or have an upcoming case with a surgery I have not encountered, this is the text to reach for. This updated text benefits from better organization as well as excellent color."
