Guide to Immediate Anaesthetic Reactions serves as a practical guide to the management of adverse anesthetic response. This book provides information pertinent to the functions of anesthesia, including hypnosis, analgesia, and neuromuscular control. Organized into six chapters, this book begins with an overview of the immunological principles in anesthesia and surgery. This text then discusses mechanisms of the adverse anesthetic reactions as well as the characteristics of immune response. Other chapters consider the theory and practical management of anaphylactoid reactions, including the requirements for laboratory studies. This book presents as well a practical approach to the understanding, recognition, and management of the life-threatening reactions of anesthesia to patients. The reader is introduced to the general considerations for patients presenting with various genetic abnormalities likely to trigger abnormal response to anesthesia. The final chapter deals with the immediate adverse reactions that are related to defects of enzyme function rather than to immunity. This book is a valuable resource for anesthetists, surgeons, and physicians.
