    Today I participated in a CABG with an upper level. Both the upper level and attending recommended this book:

    Practical Approach to Cardiac Anesthesia by Hensley, Martin, and Gravlee

    Anybody with any experience with this book? Just flipping through it, it seemed awful dense, not that I expect any less. Is this the best cardiac anesthesia text out there? I will likely wait until I am on a heart rotation before I buy it. Also wondering what other recommendations people had?

    A simplified option is Handbook of Cardiac Anesthesia and Perioperative Care: A Demythologized Approach by Wasnick(ISBN 0-7506-9748-2). It is a nice simple book for beginners and walks you through some of the complexities. It is certainly not the end all reference, but is a nice starting point. Just my $0.02.

    one of our professors, don martin, co-authored that book. i have it. it's great, very detailed (maybe too detailed for a "casual" read), and i've found it a useful reference even for non-cardiac cases/non-anesthesia cardiology stuff. dr. martin is an all-around great guy too. i would recommend. of course, i got a courtesy copy so i didn't have to shell out for it. take that for what it's worth. :laugh:
