Clinical Anesthesiology integrates succinct coverage of basic principles and clinical considerations in the anesthetic management of patients. It features up-to-date discussion of all relevant areas within anesthesiology, including equipment, pharmacology, regional anesthesia, pathophysiology, pain management, anesthetic management, and critical care. Extensive use of case discussions, figures, and tables in each chapter promotes application of the concepts to practice.
The best all-around book for residents and practitioners.

I used the third edition of this book for my writtens and orals. I am fellowed in cardiothoracic anesthesia, and boarded in pain medicine. It is more than comprehensive enough for everday practice, and it is more than enough to get you through the written boards, and will certainly help with the orals. Miller, Barash (is there an etc to these two choices?) are much more comprehensive, but they are highly dependent upon the writers of each chapter: while some are great reading, others ramble on incessantly about studies which show effects on giant squid axons, or how 3-74% of rats will react when their tails are clamped. And who can forget the effects of isoflurane on the livers of salamanders? Morgan-Mikhail is put together logically, it is highly readable, and it is extremely affordable, and while it won't give you every answer, it's a good start.

This would be an optimal choice for most medical students with a special interest in anasthesia as well as for anaesthesia residents. It's extremely well-written, neither too detailed nor too simple. The authors write with authority, which is a good thing. If I had to say something negative about this book, it would be the lack of colourful illustrations (this refers to edition elder to the 2005 edition). But then again, one knows what to expect when buying a Lange medical book. Still, this is a minor drawback, and means nothing in my eyes. I highly recommend this book!

It is a good basic book that covers the essentilas very clearly in not too long chapters. It is a good entry level book for doctors during their first year of residence in anesthesia. Also for the doctor that needs to update his knowledge. My personal experience and the reason for buying the book was that I after 5 years i neuroanesthesia needed an update prior to a period as an anesthesiologist in a not specialised department. In this way the book served its purpose well.
My favorite anesthesia text for the ABA exam
By Searcher on Sep 21, 2008
My primary source for the ABA exam. I passed the 8/05/08 exam!!! A great source. Read it three times before the exam and if you understand the information you will pass the exam. The regional section was particularly helpful.
A must have!

I had the older edition of this book, but the newest edition is definitely improved and has newer, better, and more information. So it was worth getting it. Great book! Definitely a must have for any anesthesia student.
great easy text for anesthesiology.

What more can I say. Its a great basic text. Good for first year of training.Enough to give you a decent CA1 ITE score.
Looks small but thorough.

Awesome book. Covers everything with nice layout to keep you from getting bored. Cant wait for the new edition. Saves space by not repeating anything discussed once, so I wrote linking page numbers on the book. Update Was looking for a new book, since this is 2005. Just to know when a new edition is due I emailed the publisher and got an answer!. Due November 2012!!!

Clinical Anesthesiology 4th Edition
By Colosalclay on Mar 12, 2014
Anesthesiology by Lange. It's succint, to the point, a great review and a tool. Don't let the brevity fool you; it's organized for you the first chapter in the narrative to set the historical setting? It's well presented with charts and visuals and very handy and user friendly and concise. However, you will require background knowledge for this as with other books prerequisites, requisites, obligatories, supplemental, optional is not optional the highest in the class had all the optionals. So getting the details are as important as getting the whole picture and class of drugs and subcategories etc. Excellent, well presented...you can read your chapters fast. Thank you Lange. Might I recommend their pharmcology book too by Lange but written by Katzung et al...
An oldie but a Goodie

Newer editions exist now but this is a classic for the anesthesiology resident. To be honest, Barash is probably more exhaustive reference (short of the 2 volumes of miller) but very OR friendly. Online version can be found through Access Medicine.
