Complications in Anesthesia


This easy-to-use resource details all of the complications likely to be encountered in clinical practice. The scope has been expanded to include the critical care setting. Internationally renowned authorities explain the nature, likelihood, and causes of each problem, and then guide you through the appropriate treatment measures. Each type of complication is discussed in its own concise chapter making it easier to quickly locate and research specific topics of interest.

Presents content in an updated, logical organization covering various types of complications (drugs, testing, intubation, line insertion, surgical procedures, etc.) followed by differential diagnosis and treatment of signs of complications (intraoperative, such as hypoxia or hypotension; and postoperative, such as MI).

Follows a problem-based, practice-oriented approach throughout; case synopses are followed by concise coverage of recognition, risk assessment, implications, management, and prevention.

Allows you to review the case reports, contemplate the implications, then check your response against what the experts have to say.

Includes numerous photographs, diagrams, flow charts, and tables that illustrate key concepts.

Ideal as a clinical reference and as a study tool when preparing for oral boards.

Brings you up to date with new safety standards and the latest ASA guidelines.
