Abstract
Pediatric sedation has evolved to include many specialties. This is the first book which is directed towards the broad range of specialists who deliver pediatric sedation outside of the operating room. The contributing authors are internationally recognized leaders in sedation and in their specialty. The specialty-specific chapters are designed to be applicable to all sedation providers worldwide. For example, emergency medicine physicians will find information in the chapters entitled "Sedation of Pediatric Patients for Dental Procedures" and "Sedation in the Intensive Care Unit" that applies to their own practice. When applicable, chapters conclude with "Case Studies" which present challenging clinical scenarios. Patient safety is highlighted, including the design and medico-legal implications of existing pediatric sedation services in the United States, Europe, and the developing world. Fundamental chapters provide in-depth reviews of topics which include, but are not limited to, physiology, pharmacology, and patient assessment. Up-to-the-minute, the book presents the latest guidelines across the specialties, both in the United States and abroad, and noteworthy, ongoing research endeavors. Features: Comprehensive presentation of pediatric sedation across all specialties worldwide; Case studies of real-life difficult clinical situations; International roster of leaders in sedation. Directed towards specialists in anesthesia, gastroenterology, oncology, radiology, internal medicine, nursing, hospital administration, pediatrics, dental, intensive care, emergency and hospital medicine.

Abstract
This second edition handbook details new and improved procedures, current drugs and updated algorithms used by the crews of the Great North Air Ambulance who have been providing this life saving intervention since 2004. It will be of interest to pre-hospital care doctors and trainees, especially those studying for the GNAAS course. Pre-Hospital Anaesthesia is one of the most demanding interventions that can be made in the field. The exact incidence of failed intubation is difficult to quantify, but it is clear that it is higher than in hospital. Equally it is certain that anyone undertaking it should have clear instruction in the technique and a thorough understanding of all it entails.

Abstract
Written and edited by outstanding world experts, this is the first portable, single-source volume on intraoperative neurophysiological monitoring (IOM). It is aimed at all members of the operative team: anesthesiologists, technologists, neurophysiologists, surgeons, and nurses. Now commonplace in procedures that place the nervous system at risk, such as orthopedics, neurosurgery, otologic surgery, vascular surgery, and others, effective IOM requires an unusually high degree of coordination among members of the operative team. The purpose of the book is to help team members acquire a better understanding of one another's roles and thereby to improve the quality of care and patient safety. Concise and thorough; Comprehensive coverage of monitoring techniques, from deep brain stimulation to cortical mapping; Synoptic coverage of anesthetic management basics; 23 case-based examples of procedures, including surgery of the aortic arch, ENT and anterior neck surgery, intracranial aneurysm clipping, and interventional neuroradiology; Monitoring in the ICU and of cerebral blood flow.

Abstract
Anesthesia for Trauma is a comprehensive, clinically oriented text for practitioners and trainees in anesthesia, pain management, and critical care. It covers core topics, from initial assessment and blood and blood products, to the multi-trauma patient and trauma by major anatomical region. Burns receive especially extensive coverage. Special considerations when administering anesthesia to traumatically injured children, pregnant women, and older people are reviewed, as are foundational areas such as clinically relevant physiology and the growing role of trauma simulation in training. Readers will find leading edge coverage of microvascular surgery, pain management, and critical care of trauma patients as well as up-to-date chapters on trauma in the military, civilian trauma systems, and disaster management. The book concludes with a unique 'must-read' chapter for all clinicians on the link between substance abuse and penetrating trauma.

Abstract
Authored by three world experts, this is a clinically focused book on pediatric anesthesia. "The Manual", as it is known, has long dominated the market for a succinct and practical resource on administering anesthesia to children and is used by residents, general anesthesiologists, nurse anesthetists, and pediatric anesthesiologists. This new edition retains the basic structure of the book and is updated throughout. Text-heavy in the current edition, the Seventh Edition features the addition of figures to chapters where they are especially helpful (eg, the on cardiovascular surgery and cardiac procedures) and makes greater use of headings to break up the text and guide reading. From reviews of the Sixth Edition:" This is an extremely well written book that I would recommend highly to anyone involved in anaesthetizing children. It is comprehensive enough to provide an excellent reference for trainees and general anaesthetists who occasionally deal with paediatric cases, while at the same time giving valuable supplemental information for paediatric anaesthetists encountering an unusual procedure or condition. In short, this is a book that would make a welcome addition to any anaesthetist's mobile library." --Anaesthesia .

Abstract
The Editors and contributors of this book take seriously the statement that For all of the science inherent in the specialty of pediatric critical care medicine, there is still art in providing comfort and solace to our patients and their families. No technology will ever replace the compassion in the touch of a hand or the soothing words of a calm and gentle voice. The four volumes of Pediatric Critical Care Medicine: Basic Science and Clinical Evidence, 2nd Edition detail the continued growth and evolution of the pediatric critical care medicine speciality. They reveal the technological innovations in monitoring and information management and gives witness to the rapid evolution and adoption of novel monitoring techniques, such as continuous venous oximetry and near-infrared spectroscopy. They also cover advances in molecular biology that have led to the era of personalized medicine with the ability to individualize treatment to the unique and specific needs of a patient. As such this volume and its three sister titles will be of immense value to all studying and practicing pediatric critical care medicine or those involved in the management of this group of patients.
