Editorial Reviews


From the reviews:

“This book, from the Department of Anesthesia in Toronto, contains 11 chapters on transoesophageal echocardiography … . The book makes good use of illustrations, with many echocardiographic images which have been edited carefully for size and clarity. … this handbook contains a lot of helpful information of use to both the novice and established peri-operative echocardiographers. It is attractive, very readable, portable, and likely to be carried ubiquitously. … I would recommend this book without reservations, and congratulate the author.” (A. Ng, British Journal of Anaesthesia, Vol. 109 (2), 2012)

“With more than 450 clinical images and illustrations, including three-dimensional TEE images, this work is a visual success. The quality and depth of information incorporated into such a succinct package makes this text quite a tour de force. … designed as an on-the-spot reference for echocardiographers whose experience ranges from novice to expert. … this text is a welcome and practical addition to the TEE literature.” (Étienne de Médicis, Canadian Journal of Anesthesia, Vol. 59, 2012)
