THE EDITOR: Susan Bryant, CVT, VTS (Anesthesia), is the anesthesia technician supervisor at Tufts Cummings School of Veterinary Medicine.


"It is very well written and provides excellent explanations, particularly regarding physiology. I would highly recommend it." ( Doody's, December 2010) "The book provides an up-to-date resource for technicians who want to learn a more sophisticated degree of anesthetic management or are studying for the specialty examination. It contains a great deal of practical, valuable information in a clear and concise format. It is well illustrated with many good-quality photographs, diagrams, and tables. It will be an excellent addition to the library of any veterinary technician and will be useful for students in veterinary technician programs." ( JAVMA , September 2010) "It will be an excellent addition to the library of any veterinary technician and will be useful for students in veterinary technician programs." ( Vet Med Today, September 2010) "This book is an excellent tool for technicians wishing to improve their knowledge about veterinary anesthesia and build new skills. Published in conjunction with the Academy of Veterinary Technician Anesthetists, it is a must for those planning to sit for the Veterinary Technician Specialist in Anesthesia examination. With its practical, hands-on focus and a generous sprinkling of hints and tips, it is a book designed for everyday use in situations both common and rare." ( Veterinary Technician , August 2010) "Provides foundational information that can be used to build knowledge about anesthesia, while also providing the reader practical applications and tips. A unique benefit to the text is the supplementary website information provided by the publisher. Charts, forms, and materials for use in the practice setting will be very useful for veterinary technicians performing anesthesia. Fully illustrated in color, this book will serve as a valuable addition to one's library." ( VTARC Companion , April 2010)
