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 book, written in a straightforward and easy-to-read style, focuses on important and debated current issues in anesthesiology and critical care medicine. The topics considered are wide ranging - particular attention is devoted to general topics of importance to the practitioner such as sedation, sedoanalgesia, diuretics and other drugs correct use, but specific controversial issues, such as the role of goal-directed hemodynamic therapy, or acute liver failure in intensive care, are also addressed. All of the authors are recognized experts on the subjects they discuss, and will be an important resource not only for anesthesiologists but also for all those wishing to be updated on this topic.

Abstract
This comprehensive textbook, covering all aspects of the perioperative management of patients undergoing organ transplantation, serves as the standard reference for clinicians who care for transplant patients on a day-to-day basis as well as those who encounter organ transplantation only occasionally in their clinical practice. Anesthesia and Perioperative Care for Organ Transplantation covers transplantation of the heart, lung, liver, pancreas, and kidney, as well as multivisceral and composite tissue graft transplantations. For each kind of transplantation, the full spectrum of perioperative considerations is addressed: preoperative preparation, intraoperative anesthesia management, surgical techniques, and postoperative care. Each chapter contains evidence-based recommendations, relevant society guidelines, management algorithms, and institutional protocols as tables, flow diagrams, and figures. Photographs demonstrating surgical techniques, anesthesia procedures, and perfusion management are included. Anesthesia and Perioperative Care for Organ Transplantation is for anesthesiologists and critical care physicians; transplantation surgeons; nurse anesthetists; ICU nurses; and trainees.

Abstract
This text covers the major controversies and "myths" in each of the major anesthesia subspecialties. You're Wrong, I'm Right is designed to be an easy and engaging evidence based read that offers the fast-paced give-and-take of a debate between two experts at the top of their game--capturing their full argument, including expressions of humor and displays of temper. Each point of contention begins with a real case, carefully selected to encapsulate the argument. One author then argues the "pro" side and another the "con." Sometimes a single author may argue both sides. In doing so, the authors highlight the newest evidence and remind us of classic principles that have stood the test of time. At the end of the debate, readers can determine which argument they will use in their clinical practice, and may also consult a final "Consensus" section that identifies the editors' and contributors' "picks" of the one best practice in a range of different situations.

Abstract
All anesthesiologists are confronted with patients who show bleeding disorders, whether congenital, acquired, or pharmacologically induced. Although many studies, meta-analyses, guidelines, and textbooks have been published on the subject, they mostly cover specific aspects or require a thorough knowledge of hemostasis. The goal of this book is to provide the anesthetist with an overview of hemostasis and the mechanisms underlying bleeding and coagulation in general and to assist in the understanding of specific coagulation disorders as they may occur in the various anesthetic subspecialties. It is hoped that, through the provision of practical information and tools, the book will help residents and trained anesthetists to manage one of the most frustrating challenges that they face: the bleeding patient. A full understanding of coagulation requires a lifelong career, and this book is not intended to replace the consulting hematologist, whose expert opinion should always be sought. The available procoagulant blood products and drugs all have potentially dangerous side-effects; furthermore, in bleeding disorders pitfalls are frequent and a misdiagnosis can have potentially catastrophic consequences. The aim of the editors is thus instead to enhance the collaboration between the disciplines of Anesthesiology and Hematology.

Part I. Pre-operative haemostasis -- Cell based coagulation model -- Laboratory testing of hemostasis -- Viscoelastic tests of hemostasis -- Point of care platelet function tests -- Hemostasis assessment and evaluation -- Hereditary coagulopathies -- Acquired coagulopathies -- Drug induced - Antiplatelet drugs -- Intravenous fluids and coagulation -- Split blood products -- Isolated coagulation products -- Pro-coagulant drugs -- Patient blood management. Part II. Per-operative haemostasis -- In cardiac surgery -- In Hepatic Surgery -- In Pediatric Surgery -- In Obstetrics Surgery -- In Trauma -- In Neurosurgery -- In Orthopedic Surgery -- In Neuraxial and Peripheral Nerve blocks -- Part III.
