Abstract
The occurrence of deleterious or even fatal drug-drug interactions (DDIs) in the perioperative period is no longer a theoretical concern but a harrowing reality. A Case Approach to Perioperative Drug-Drug Interactions addresses the complex realm of pharmacokinetic drug interactions in an easy-to-read volume that functions as both a comprehensive clinical reference and a casebook. The book presents a summary of the core concepts of drug interactions; an organized, annotated presentation of the drug interactions most relevant to the perioperative clinician; and approximately 200 case scenarios that highlight specific drug interactions. This book fills a real void in the clinical literature and is invaluable to anesthesiologists and surgeons, and PharmDs, as well as trainees in those specialties; intensive care staff, including physicians, physician assistants, and nurses; and nurse practitioners who staff preoperative evaluation clinics.

Abstract
The origins of cardiac surgery are dramatic. It has evolved through the efforts of visionaries who were often criticized and at times dismissed as mad, as well as the great number of desperate patients who accepted to subject themselves to new and untried procedures in the hope of cheating death. While often disregarded, the history of scientific inquiry has much to teach us, and that of cardiac surgery and interventional cardiology is no exception. To discuss the dawn and evolution of cardiac procedures, an international team of cardiac surgeons, interventional cardiologists, anesthesiologists, perfusionists, and biomedical engineers from 22 centers and six countries have been brought together. Each chapter of this book offers a detailed overview of previous investigative efforts and an understanding of the thinking and mentality behind them. Nevertheless, chapters on the recent history of mini-invasive and sutureless valve surgery have also been included, to further assist the reader in transitioning from past to present and on into the future. The attention devoted to research aspects, the comprehensiveness of the historical overview, and the pedagogic and anecdotal nature of the contents make this text unique in the cardiac field and of utmost interest to researchers, cardiac surgeons, cardiologists, residents, medical historians, and biomedical engineers.

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
The practice of intensive care medicine is at the very forefront of titration of treatment andmonitoringresponse. The substrate of this care is the critically ill patient who, by defnition, is at the limits of his or her physiologic reserve. Such patients need immediate, aggressive but balanced life-altering interventions to minimize the detrimental aspects of acute illness and hasten recovery.Treatment decisions and response to therapy are usually assessed by measures of physiologic function, such as assessed by cardio-respiratory monitoring. However, how one uses such information is ofen unclear and rarely supported by prospective clinical trials. In reality, the bedside clinician is forced to rely primarily on physiologic principles in determining the best treatments and response to therapy. However, the physiologic foundation present in practicing physicians is uneven and occasionally supported more by habit or prior training than science. A series of short papers published in Intensive Care Medicine since 2002 under the heading Physiologic Notes attempts to capture the essence of the physiologic perspectives that underpin both our understanding of disease and response to therapy. This present volume combines the complete list of these Physiologic Notes up until July 2006 with the asso ciated review articles over the same interval that also addressed these central issues.

Abstract
Since the first edition of the Handbook on Drowning in 2005, many epidemiological data have confirmed the burden of drowning in several parts of the world. Studies have increased the understanding of effective drowning prevention strategies, rescue techniques, and treatment options. Much has been learned about submersion and immersion hypothermia, SCUBA-diving injuries, the life-saving preparations of water-related disasters and how to deal with forensic investigations. In this updated second edition, experts from around the world provide a complete overview of current research data, consensus statements and expert opinions. The book Drowning provides evidence-based practical information and has a unique informative value for various groups with tasks, duties and responsibilities in this domain. In addition, the book may be an inspiration for future networks and research initiatives.

Since the very beginning of critical care medicine, much attention has been paid to the risk of bleeding, but only recently the risk of thrombosis has been recognized in critical patients; in fact, current laboratory investigationsáaimed to monitor blood coagulation are more focused on the assessment of the hemorrhagic than of the thrombotic risk. Since mid-90s, many studies have detected powerful pro-thrombotic actions of endogenous mediators in sepsis and other inflammatory conditions, includ…

Abstract
Since the very beginning of critical care medicine, much attention has been paid to the risk of bleeding, but only recently the risk of thrombosis has been recognized in critical patients; in fact, current laboratory investigationsáaimed to monitor blood coagulation are more focused on the assessment of the hemorrhagic than of the thrombotic risk. Since mid-90s, many studies have detected powerful pro-thrombotic actions of endogenous mediators in sepsis and other inflammatory conditions, including trauma and postoperative status. Unfortunately, the related complication are both hard to detect and extremely harmful. The volume provides a full coverage of the hemocoagulative problems in anesthesia and intensive care, taking into consideration the physiology and monitoring of hemostasis, its relation with sepsis, and the specific aspects of the various critical conditions - from trauma to burns, to heart and transplant surgery or acute renal failure
