Overcome the toughest airway challenges with Master Techniques in Upper and Lower Airway Management! Under the preeminent editorial guidance of William Rosenblatt, MD and Wanda Popescu, MD, a multitude of expert anesthesiologists guide you through all the ins and outs of managing difficult airways. This anesthesiology reference’s case-based approach demonstrates the clinical applications of important principles, and a large collection of online videos shows you how to perform key techniques successfully.

Two master clinician educators, Drs. William Rosenblatt and Wanda Popescu, calling on their expertise in airway management and thoracic anesthesia, respectively, have developed a unique book which explores the pathway of the airway from lips (nares) to the terminal bronchi to develop a highly focused volume with accompanying e-media to highlight clinical management. Although the organization of the book may seem obvious or intuitive, this is the first time a textbook has been developed in this manner. For the reader, these individuals have assembled the ‘go to faculty’ for both pre-operative consultation, as well as, intra-operative airway related events in their specialties.”

– from the Foreword by Paul G. Barash MD
