Excellent quick walkthrough
By Abdulquadri O. on 05. October 2018 for Anesthesiology

I am a current CA-2 in training in an American Anesthesia training program. I have found this very helpful because, though it doesn't cover particular doses of medications (will leave that to textbooks and experiences), it does a good job of providing an overview. I am getting to that point where I am feeling more responsible for my patients, and this has to transcend beyond the text and into actual practice. Having this quick review was a quick and effective first step. Thank you Dr. Warriner.
