ABSTRACT

No one who anesthetizes children should miss reading this book, a model of common sense derived from wide experience. The author intends no comprehensive survey of the literature—rather, he describes his methods, the precautions he takes, and all the details of procedure which anesthetists must usually discover for themselves.

After several chapters providing a general introduction, Davenport discusses anesthesia for specific major and minor operations. Throughout, he stresses the hazards of too vigorous treatment, too much medication, and too hasty action.

Davenport's common sense attitude is evident throughout Paediatric Anaesthesia. Here is his approach to the problem of keeping the anesthesiologist awake: "During dreary anaesthetic routines it is stimulating if some special feature of physiology or pharmacology is followed. In this way, interest can be maintained and investigation initiated. Any accurate measurements are daily research, and major scientific projects can arise from simple clinical observation."
