Sharpen your clinical decision-making skills with this concise handbook of anesthesia care for children
Written by the pediatric anesthesia faculty at Columbia University Medical Center, Handbook of Pediatric Anesthesia is a succinct guide to the practice of clinical anesthesia in neonates, infants, children, and adolescents. Each of the 89 chapters is devoted to a specific illness or disorder and is presented in a consistent, easy-access design. Every chapter includes a case description, perioperative considerations, anesthetic management, postoperative considerations, controversies, and surgical concerns for the illness discussed.
Covering the entire breadth of the specialty, Handbook of Pediatric Anesthesia is an outstanding introductory text and an essential review for pediatric anesthesia board certification and recertification. It is especially valuable to residents and trainees as well as practicing anesthesiologists who do not manage pediatric cases on a regular basis. The book concludes with detailed appendices, including a Pediatric Critical Event Checklist and a Pediatric Drug Guide.
