“This text provides a far-ranging look at the science underpinning our most basic monitors, the formulas guiding our interpretation of tests, and the current subspecialty-related guidelines influencing our care. It will likely be valuable to any anesthesiologist looking for a resource to shore up his or her mastery of the ever-evolving sources of data in our field.” (Ellen W. Richter and Roman Sniecinski, Anesthesia & Analgesia, Vol.127 (1), July, 2018)
