Clinical Anesthesia: Near Misses and Lessons Learned 2nd ed

Residents, fellows, and practising certified registered nurse anesthetists will benefit from the retelling of these actual near misses, the solutions chosen at the time, and a retrospective analysis of those solutions that includes tips for how the problems could have been avoided altogether or resolved differently. An excellent study aid for the American Board of Anesthesiology oral exam and a useful teaching tool for faculty, since near misses such as these are relatively rare and other than reading about them, there really is no way to be prepared to successfully manage such crises. As such, even experienced anesthesiologists and CRNAs will find this to be a worthy purchase.


Physics for Anesthesiologists: From Daily Life to the Operating Room 1st ed. 2017 Edition

This book discusses, explains and provides detailed, up-to-date information on physics applied to clinical practice in anesthesiology, with the aid of simple examples from daily life. Almost everything that happens around us, including in the operating room and intensive care units, can be explained by physical laws. An awareness and understanding of relatively simple laws  such as Bernoulli’s theorem, Hagen-Poiseuille equation and Pascal’s principle, to name just a few, offer anesthesiologists and intensivists fascinating insights into why they do what they do.

Each of the 16 chapters starts with an everyday phenomenon, explains it with a physical law, and then shows why that law is important in anesthesia practice. Numerous illustrations are included for extra clarity.

It is intended for anesthesiologists, intensivists, anesthesia teachers, anesthesia trainees, and medical students.


Anesthesia in Cosmetic Surgery 1st Edition

[amazon template=banner easy&asin=0521870909]

One major by-product of the aging baby-boom generation is a surging interest in cosmetic surgery. Although procedures like facelifts and abdominoplasties (the ‘tummy-tuck’) are considered minimally invasive, the anesthetic protocols and regimens here are often overly complex and unnecessarily toxic. This reference will focus on all of the procedures that the anesthesiologist needs to be proficient in to adequately care for this group of patients. Perioperative care and pain management will be covered for the full spectrum of operations, and there will be special emphasis on level-of-consciousness monitoring of these patients.

Covering the most important topics in trauma anesthesia, this updated edition provides anesthesiology trainees and practitioners with a practical basis for managing trauma patients. Many recent advances in trauma care are identified, including paradigm shifts in the management of bleeding and coagulopathy, new neuromuscular blockade and anticoagulant reversal drugs, and updated clinical practice guidelines. This volume provides a concise, practical review of the essential elements in the care of the severely injured trauma patient, including emergency airway management, fluid and blood resuscitation, monitoring, coagulation therapy, regional and general anesthesia, and perioperative care. Edited by two of the most experienced trauma anesthesiologists in the United States, with chapters written by experts from leading US and Canadian trauma centers with the highest and most varied caseload of critically injured patients, Essentials of Trauma Anesthesia identifies new trends in surgery and anesthesiology practices that impact on the management of trauma patients.

[amazon template=image&asin=3319600702]

This comprehensive book provides reviews of pain management complications that arise in clinical practice.  Organized into sections focused on types of pain therapy and procedures, each chapter is based on actual complications; starting with a case description that delineates the context with a short past medical and surgical history, pain management technique and outcome it is followed by a comprehensive review of the topic described in the first section.  Authors emphasize the elements of differential diagnosis that pointed towards establishing of the complication and describe the best way to treat the identified complication.  Physicians treating pain patients will be presented the necessary tools in identifying and treating unanticipated complications following pain interventions, thus providing safer care for their patients.

How to Survive in Anaesthesia 4th Edition

[amazon template=image&asin=0470654627]

Anaesthesia can be daunting for the novice – not least because they often begin working singlehandedly within a few weeks. How to Survive in Anaesthesia is a pocket sized book written by 3 authors who have nearly 90 years experience of anaesthesia between them. It covers basic aspects of airway and fluid management and equipment, followed by common emergencies. Finally it tackles all the common surgical specialties step by step. It is always practical, ever contemporary, frequently amusing. It provides safe and practical advice to not only help novices survive those first few months – but to enjoy them too.

How to Survive in Anaesthesia was written to answer the questions that newly qualified anaesthetists need answers to but may be too embarrassed to ask.  Through three editions its popularity has gathered momentum across the globe. Now the fourth edition has been revised and updated, responding to changes in practice and new requirements.  New features for this edition include:

  • A new introduction on the theatre environment
  • A new chapter on local anaesthetic toxicity
  • The latest guidelines on intravenous fluids
  • Updated information on airway procedures and equipment

Written in an easy, humorous style by leading anaesthetists who have over 90 years’ experience between them, this book is the junior anaesthetist’s gateway to sound authoritative advice on how to perform anaesthetics in real life. It will inspire confidence in any new doctor starting in the specialty.

Oxford Case Histories: Anaesthesia 1st Edition

[amazon template=image&asin=0198704860]

Based around the core curriculum for specialist trainees, Oxford Case Histories in Anaesthesia contains over 60 clinical cases compiled by expert consultants. The cases comprehensively cover all sub-specialties and a broad range of variations that occur in normal and abnormal physiology, pharmacology and pathology, as well as patient age. The cases have been selected with reference to the revised Curriculum for a Certificate of Completion of Training in Anaesthesia set by the Royal College of Anaesthetists.

Each case begins with clear learning outcomes and is mapped to the CCT matrix, greatly aiding those revising for the Final FRCA examination. The cases are presented with a background to the subject area, and a summary of the history and examination findings with relevant investigation results. This is followed by several questions on clinically important aspects of the case with answers and detailed discussion, particularly of the differential management options. Further reading at the end of each case aids future study.

As well as those preparing for the Final FRCA, this book will also be of interest for post-fellowship trainees on specialty attachments and those who occasionally have to anaesthetize out with their normal field of practice, for example in subspecialty emergencies or whilst awaiting retrieval teams to arrive for transfer to tertiary care centres.


Anesthesia and Neurotoxicity 1st ed

[amazon template=image&asin=4431556230]

This book, written by leading Japanese experts in the field, describes the latest findings on the neurotoxicity of anesthetics for the developing brain, postoperative delirium and cognitive dysfunction.

It describes the risk factors for postoperative cognitive dysfunction in elderly surgical patients. Since the number of elderly patients undergoing surgery and anesthesia continues to increase, it is important to improve our understanding of the risks and mechanisms of postoperative delirium and cognitive dysfunction, potential ways to prevent or alleviate them and the public health implications.

Recently, it has been shown that using anesthetics on the developing brain causes apoptotic neurodegeneration and persistent learning/memory deficits later in life. Anesthesiologists need more information on this mechanism in the human brain.

The negative effects of anesthesia and surgery on the nervous system have attracted attention lately; this book provides physicians, researchers, and postdocs with invaluable information on this topic.
