Many thanks to nurse anesthesia colleagues, faculty, and students who reviewed items contained in this review book. Contributions by clinical and academic faculty fostered a comprehensive review for students and practicing nurse anesthetists.
Special thanks to Jacqueline Smith, Ph.D., Dean, College of Health Sciences, Glendale, and the Midwestern University Nurse Anesthesia Program faculty for unwavering support and encouragement and to Alanna Connelly, Program Coordinator, for countless hours of formatting and editing. This work is dedicated to the nurse anesthesia profession and today's students who aspire to continue the tradition of providing safe anesthetic care. Finally, I thank my dear family.
