Oxford Textbook of Anaesthesia for the Obese Patient (Oxford Textbooks in Anaesthesia) 

Obesity is a global public health issue; significant numbers of the world’s population are overweight, growing numbers are obese, and many are morbidly obese. As obesity is associated with a range of co-morbidities (namely cardiovascular disease, diabetes, cancer, depression, and sleep apnoea), it presents a daunting peri-operative challenge to the anaesthetist. The increasing size and weight of patients presenting for surgery involves multiple issues from starting
intravenous lines through to intubation and ventilation challenges.

The Oxford Textbook of Anaesthesia for the Obese Patient is a highly authoritative, evidence-based account of the principles and clinical practice within the field. Across 36 chapters, this resource provides comprehensive coverage of all aspects of the subject including physiological and pharmacological modifications in the obese patient, bariatric and non-bariatric surgery, specific clinical issues such as fluid management and tissue oxygenation, as well as challenges arising from
obesity in the setting of paediatrics, obstetrics, intensive care and trauma.

Written and edited by experts in the field, this resource is the definitive guide to clinical management of the obese patient, exploring various international approaches to practice, with helpful case studies, and practical advice on common intra-operative challenges, and how to resolve them using evidence and best practice.
