In this symposium on nursing and administration in anesthesiology the authors discuss, by means of questions and answers, the definitions, purpose, location, physical setup, administration, personnel, equipment, economics, policies and procedures, general patient management, and special problems of the subject. The illustrations are neat and easily read. This book should be available to nurses, interns, and residents in anesthesiology and surgery. It is neatly and simply organized and approaches the problem directly. Probably the greatest value of this book would be to those organizing a recovery room for the first time. Here they would quickly find the answer to most of their questions.
