We also see a more youthful appearance with a bright illustrated cover rather than the previous sombre dark blue.

Chapter by chapter Key Point listings and innumerable Teaching Boxes add to the contemporary feel. Although this is a multi-author textbook with 94 different contributors there is a uniform prose style throughout, and little in the way of repetition, reflecting tight editorial control.

This comment is simply intended as an observation, not a criticism, as UK practice tends to follow the lead set on the other side of the Atlantic. Many of the contributors are acknowledged experts in their field and seven have been guest speakers at meetings of the UK Association of Cardiothoracic Anaesthetists in the past 5 yr.

The book is divided into eight main sections and starts with a fascinating new section entitled Past, Present and Future. This looks at historical developments in cardiac surgery and cardiac anaesthesia and then turns to current and potential future developments. The implications for the speciality of the current global trend towards percutaneous revascularization, concerns over long-term patency rates for coronary stents and the consequences of an ageing population are all discussed.

The authors conclude that the speciality has a bright future but this may well see anaesthetists increasingly involved in cardiac catheter laboratory work. Sections follow on physiology and pharmacology, preoperative evaluation, monitoring, anaesthetic techniques, extracorporeal circulation, postoperative care and practice management. The monitoring section includes nearly pages specifically devoted to the practice of transoesophageal echocardiography and its role in the surgical decision-making process, a reflection of the importance of this technique in North American practice.

In addition, guidelines for training in perioperative echocardiography are included in an appendix. The chapter by Murkin, in the postoperative care section, on central nervous system dysfunction after cardiopulmonary bypass is a particular tour de force.
