In recent years our understanding of molecular mechanisms of drug action and interindividual variability in drug response has grown enormously. Meanwhile, the practice of anesthesiology has expanded to the preoperative environment and numerous locations outside the OR. Anesthetic Pharmacology: Basic Principles and Clinical Practice, second edition, is an outstanding therapeutic resource in anesthesia and critical care: Section 1 introduces the principles of drug action, Section 2 presents the molecular, cellular and integrated physiology of the target organ/functional system and Section 3 reviews the pharmacology and toxicology of anesthetic drugs. The new Section 4, Therapeutics of Clinical Practice, provides integrated and comparative pharmacology and the practical application of drugs in daily clinical practice. Edited by three highly acclaimed academic anesthetic pharmacologists, with contributions from an international team of experts, and illustrated in full colour, this is a sophisticated, user-friendly resource for all practitioners providing care in the perioperative period.

Anatomy for Anaesthetists

111837598x

[amazon template=iframe image2&asin=111837598X]

Anaesthetists require a particularly specialized knowledge of anatomy

The anaesthetist must know intimately the respiratory passages, the major veins and the peripheral
nerves to deliver safe and effective pain control.

As one of the great teachers of anatomy, Professor Harold Ellis is eminently qualified to elegantly
provide the anatomical detail required of anaesthetists. Modern approaches to practice, including
the use of imaging to guide anaesthetic practice, add further depth to the fine full–colour anatomical
illustrations.

Designed for anaesthetists, Anatomy for Anaesthetists covers:

• The Respiratory Pathway, Lungs, Thoracic Wall and Diaphragm
• The Heart and Great Veins of the Neck
• The Peripheral Nerves
• The Autonomic Nervous System
• The Cranial Nerves
• The Anatomy of Pain

Clinical Notes throughout provide the clinical context for the anatomical detail. Designed for trainees, but of continuing relevance to practicing anaesthetists, and now in its Golden Jubilee edition, Anatomy for Anaesthetists provides a central pillar of anaesthetic knowledge.

Pediatric Sedation Outside of the Operating Room: A Multispecialty International Collaboration 2nd ed. 2015 Edition

1493913891

[amazon template=iframe image2&asin=1493913891]

This is a major revision, updating, and expansion of the leading single-source volume on pediatric sedation outside of the operating room. Edited and written by an international roster of outstanding experts, it is the only book aimed at the broad range of specialists who deliver pediatric sedation in the non-OR setting.

The Second Edition features a significant expansion of contributions from international leaders and individual new chapters on pre-sedation assessment; sedatives’ short- and long-term effects on neurocognition; non-pharmacologic distractions; Michael Jackson’s death and medical ethics; the role of simulation in safety and training; and palliative sedation in terminally ill children.

The specialty-specific chapters continue to be geared toward all sedation providers, regardless of where they practice and patient safety is again emphasized. Fundamental chapters provide in-depth reviews of topics which include, among others, physiology and pharmacology. The book presents the latest guidelines across the specialties, both in the United States and abroad and noteworthy, ongoing research endeavors.

From reviews of the First Edition:

“This meritorious volume is a splendid collection of materials from highly experienced authors…I will make extensive use of this reference as the academic medical center in which I work continues to build sedation practices and assess credentialing/privileging aspects for professionals of all fields.” ―Joseph R. Tobin, MD in Journal of the American Medical Association.

“Brings together sedation practice from a broad range of specialties into one well-written pediatric text…I will certainly be using this book as a reference text in the future.” ― Pediatric Anesthesia.

“The first [text] directed at all specialists that treat children who require some sedation…also recognizes the contributions to pediatric sedation of many international societies and governmental organizations…It should be on the shelves of all office-based practices.” ―Journal of Neurosurgical Anesthesiology.

“With the ever-increasing opportunities to perform various investigations and therapeutic procedures, combined with increasing demands and expectations from children and their parents, the need and demand for safe and effective sedation of paediatric patients outside the operating room is increasing. Against this background, the second edition of ‘Pediatric Sedation Outside the Operating Room’ is a very timely addition to the anaesthesia literature.”―British Journal of Anesthesia
