Description

Actual case studies in a Q & A format explore contemporary problems in anesthesia, and provide practical solutions based on a careful examination of all of the important scientific and clinical principles for each case. The 3rd Edition offers brand-new coverage of key topics in the cardiovascular, respiratory, central nervous system, abdomen, and post-anesthesia care sections as well as a completely new section on trauma. It also addresses important topics such as hemophilia, infant anesthesia, lower extremity anesthesia, and celiac plexus blocks. All of the existing cases are thoroughly revised to include new treatments and practice guidelines, and new knowledge of the relevant pharmacology. It's an ideal review tool for board preparation, and a handy resource for practice.

Key Features

  • Offers solutions to frequently occurring practical problems through discussions of pathophysiology, pharmacology, preoperative evaluation, and intraoperative care.
  • Facilitates the proper identification of both common and rare clinical problems.
  • Examines the crucial scientific and clinical principles for each case study.
