Abstract
This book addresses those aspects of anaesthetic practice in perioperative medicine which have a significant impact on both the immediate and the long-term outcome for the surgical patient. Perioperative Medicine is the natural evolution of anaesthesia from a main focus on the patient in the operating room to a responsibility for the care of the patient from the time that the decision to operate is made, through to discharge from hospital. The contributors, well-respected authors in their field, discuss the role of the perioperative medicine specialist in areas ranging from pre-operative assessment and physiological optimization via pre-habilitation, to intra-operative anaesthetic management, and post-operative care. Controversial topics discussed include fluid therapy, anaesthesia and cancer outcomes, pharmacological management of cardiac risk, and the evolution of acute to chronic pain. Developments in regional anaesthesia, quality of recovery scoring, and lung ultrasound, are described. It is hoped that the chapters contained in this book will help to define the nascent specialty that is Perioperative Medicine, and encourage further debate, research, and expansion of this vital new frontier in anaesthetic care.
Contents

Abstract
This book provides a comprehensive overview of current standards of anesthesia and intensive care in neonates and children, with a view to promoting standardization in clinical practice. The first part of the book, devoted to issues in intensive care, opens by considering scoring systems for the assessment of sick children. The diagnosis, prevention, and management of ventilator-associated pneumonia are then discussed, and the roles of high-frequency oscillatory ventilation and noninvasive respiratory support are reviewed. Further chapters address procedural sedation and analgesia in children, the progress toward 'open' ICUs with liberal visiting policies, and advances in long-term home mechanical ventilation. In the second part of the book, a range of important topics in anesthesia and perioperative medicine are discussed. After a review of safety issues, current trends in pediatric regional and locoregional anesthesia are described and a synopsis is provided on current knowledge regarding the use of central blocks in infants and children. Subsequent chapters are devoted to awareness monitoring, single-lung ventilation techniques, anesthesia in the context of severe prematurity, and emergence delirium.Pediatric Anesthesia, Intensive Care and Pain: Standardization in Clinical Practice will be an extremely useful source of information for both novices and more experienced practitioners in the field.

Abstract
This is an up-to-date clinical reference on anesthesia for urological surgery. Advances in urological procedures, the advent of treatment of patients with strong anticoagulant and antiplatelet medications, and the demographics of urology patients (many of whom are young or elderly) present challenges for the anesthesiologist and have necessitated changes in anesthesia practice. Urological anesthesia is not recognized as a subspecialty, and this book, which reflects the expertise of clinicians and researchers from around the United States and Europe, is written for the majority of anesthesiologists and nurse anesthetists who will provide anesthesia for these patients. The book includes coverage of these topics: Renal physiology and pharmacology; Urologic anesthesia in all age groups, and in both the operating room and outpatient setting; Special considerations in the pregnant patient and in renal transplantation; Anesthesia for robotic surgery of the prostate; In older patients, problems arising from co-morbidities and the risk of drug interactions; Appropriate pain management in inpatient and outpatient settings; The unique challenges of positioning the patient; Medico-legal considerations, including analyses from the closed claims study.

Abstract
This text presents the basic and clinical foundations of anesthesiology. It is easy to read and is comprehensive without being lengthy. Readers can test their knowledge with the "Clinical Review" questions at the end of chapters and will appreciate the abundance of color illustrations, clinical images, and practical tables. Chapters are highly organized and make liberal use of bulleted text where appropriate. Everything needed in a single source is here, from clinically important basic science to the full range of anesthetic practice: pain management and regional anesthesia, including ultrasound-guided peripheral nerve blocks; specialty anesthesia; preoperative evaluation and intraoperative management; ambulatory and non-operating room anesthesia; and critical care. The book also includes topical chapters on the obese patient, infectious diseases, alternative medicine, substance abuse, cosmetic surgery, robotic surgery, the hazards of working in the operating room, and residency requirements and guidelines.
