“Two master clinician educators, Drs.

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.”
