More Notable Names in Anaesthesia edited by Alistair McKenzie is a follow-on volume to Notable Names in Anaesthesia edited by J. Roger Maltby (2002). It includes eponyms used on a daily basis in the practice of anaesthesiology. Some of these in alphabetical order are: Aintree intubation catheter, Heidbrink valve, Luer-lock, PCA, pulse oximeter, Ritchie whistle, Seldinger wire, Sprotte spinal needle, TCI, Vienna score and Yankauer sucker. The origins of these names and short biographies of the men and women are readily available by dipping into the alphabetical arrangement. The book also features numerous eponymous awards and lectures arranged by societies and colleges of anaesthesiology across the globe as well as famous museums and textbooks. There are 72 entries, but some include more than one name, so the total number of biographies is 74, provided by eleven authors; McKenzie himself contributed 62 of the entries. More Notable Names in Anaesthesia should appeal to both medical and veterinary anaesthetists, operating department practitioners, nurses, medical students and anyone passionate about the history of medicine.
