Pediatric Anesthesiology Review: Clinical Cases for Self-Assessment 2nd ed. 2017 Edition

This text is designed for those who may become consultants in pediatric anesthesia. It is based on a curriculum developed since 1992 to illustrate the breadth and depth of the practice of pediatric anesthesia and the program is an integral part of the didactic series in the Department of Anesthesiology, Perioperative and Pain Medicine at Boston Children’s Hospital.

This second edition has the same purpose as the first – to accompany the reader’s journey in attaining proficiency, expertise and finally, mastery in pediatric anesthesiology. The format of the book is designed to encourage the readers’ free flow of ideas and the written examinations, seen at the beginning of the text as a baseline in pediatric medicine, are primarily knowledge-based, reflecting factual medical information necessary for the subspecialty practice of pediatric anesthesiology. With this basic guidance, the reader can bring him or herself “into the operating room” and manage the patient in an expert fashion.

Review

“The balance of text is more favoured towards the pharmacology aspects. However, the physiology chapters all cover their subject well. The content of the chapter is all of a high standard and would be suitable for those preparing for post-graduate examinations… The book also comes with a link to access to a searchable online version via Expertconsult.com which also includes linkage through Medline to the text of references used and access to a library of the images for each chapter… In summary, this a useful well-written textbook of pharmacology, but both sciences are dealth with to a high standard. The images are excellent and complement the text. I am happy to recommend this book as a useful learning and reference source.”

Case Files Anesthesiology (LANGE Case Files) 1st Edition

Learn the fundamentals of anesthesiology in the context of real patients.

4 STAR DOODY’S REVIEW!
“The book targets medical students, but even junior anesthesia trainees would find it very compelling….Although it has the appearance of a handbook, this book is an overview of clinical anesthesiology. It takes a simulation approach to drive home essential concepts of anesthesia management in different disease conditions. Of all the handy books out there, this is perhaps the only one that teaches anesthesia in the context of real patients rather than merely stating facts. It would be an invaluable aid to medical students doing anesthesia clerkships or junior anesthesia trainees who need a quick review for an emergency case in the middle of the night.”–Doody’s Review Service

Fundamentals of Neuroanesthesia: A Physiologic Approach to Clinical Practice 1st Edition

Neurosurgical procedures are becoming more common and are taking place in the operating room and in interventional suites. Procedures that used to be performed only at major academic institutions are also being done in small community hospitals, and anesthesiologists in private practice are being asked to care for these patients. In many cases, treatment options are controversial or rapidly evolving. Close cooperation between the anesthesiologist and neurosurgeon is essential to achieve optimal outcomes and early recognition of any adverse events so appropriate therapy can be implemented. Fundamentals of Neuroanesthesia is a comprehensive guide to neuroanesthesia that discusses neurophysiology, neuroanatomy, and neurosurgical procedures and offers practical approaches and solutions to administering neuroanesthesia and providing perioperative care for neurosurgical patients. Chapters emphasize clinical management of neurosurgical problems that may be encountered in community practice as well as major academic medical centers. Highlighted key points, figures, algorithms, and management procedures supplement the text. This book is a must-have volume for general anesthesiologists, anesthesiology fellows, and subspecialists.
