Abstract
Interest in regional anaesthesia has been flourishing for a number of reasons, including in particular the feasibility of ultrasound-guided peripheral nerve blocks. This trend is reflected in the growing popularity of fellowships in regional anaesthesia. The syllabus for such fellowship examinations is vast, and this book aims to provide suitable guidance by presenting typical multiple choice questions with accompanying answers, in detail when necessary. The entire syllabus is covered in four comprehensive sections that address basic principles and equipment, peripheral nerve blocks, central neuraxial blocks, and regional anaesthesia and acute pain. Multiple Choice Questions in Regional Anaesthesia will be especially useful for those preparing for European Society of Regional Anaesthesia diploma examinations or for the regional anaesthesia component of FRCA examinations. It is also highly relevant to equivalent U.S. and Canadian examinations and will be helpful to all who require a self-assessment tool in the subject.
Contents
Benefits and Complications -- Equipment and Usage of Ultrasound -- Pharmacology -- The Upper Extremity -- Lower Limb Blocks -- Ophthalmic Block -- Head, Neck and Airway -- Neuraxial Block -- Regional Anaesthesia in Obstetrics -- Regional Anaesthesia in Paediatrics -- Further Reading.

Abstract
La respirazione meccanica © una procedura con cui ogni medico che si occupi di medicina intensiva, di discipline chirurgiche e di medicina generale deve quotidianamente confrontarsi. Questo volume si propone di fornire ai lettori le pi©£ aggiornate conoscenze necessarie all'applicazione di questa procedura, insieme a una valutazione critica dei relativi vantaggi e svantaggi basata sull'evidenza. La prima versione in lingua italiana del volume, pubblicata nel 2007, ha ottenuto un grande successo ed © diventata un importante riferimento per tutti i professionisti che si trovano a utilizzare questa pratica clinica. Per questo motivo © stato deciso di realizzare questa seconda edizione, nella quale i pi©£ recenti progressi in ambito clinico e terapeutico, cos© come l'eliminazione di concetti oggi superati, vanno ad aggiornare la struttura originaria: partendo dalle basi anatomiche e fisiologiche della respirazione meccanica e dalle varie forme di insufficienza respiratoria, vengono prese in considerazione le indicazioni a questo tipo di intervento, le complicazioni ad esso legate, oltre che i metodi alternativi e i suggerimenti sulla gestione delle malattie specifiche dell'apparato respiratorio. Le pi©£ recenti tecniche di terapia respiratoria e di respirazione meccanica non invasiva completano questo trattato.

Abstract
Liver Anesthesiology and Critical Care Medicine emphasizes all aspects of this broad and important area and is the definitive textbook for anybody involved in the perioperative care of liver patients. The book is divided into three sections: Physiology and Pathophysiology, Anesthesiology, and Critical Care Medicine. The anesthesiology section contains information about liver transplantation and other liver surgeries and provides detailed practical direction and concise background information of all aspects of the anesthetic management of these patients based on the most recent evidence. The critical care section describes basic critical care management as it relates to liver surgical patients and addresses specific postoperative issues relevant for liver resection and liver transplant patients. The book combines practical guidance to the perioperative management with extensive background and clinical evidence to allow the reader gain an in-depth understanding of this complex and fascinating topic.

Abstract
Loco-regional anesthesia presents definite advantages in almost all surgical branches, since it couples a perfect anesthesia with a long postoperative analgesia. This discipline is constantly developing thanks to new drugs and new techniques. In the last decade the advent of ultrasound guided regional anesthesia has extended the study from the anatomic room to the virtual but real "in corpore viri" ecographic image thus increasing the success rate of this type of anesthesia. Together with electrostimulation, it has definitely increased the success rate of loco-regional anesthesia. Nonetheless, though supported by new fundamental tools, it is of the utmost importance for anesthesiologists to have a deep knowledge of the brachial plexus and of the topographic anatomy, on which the two first chapters are focused.

Authored by clinical and academic leaders from a variety of settings and backgrounds, this book includes chapters on pharmacology, adverse effects, safe rotation from other opioids, cardiac toxicity, prescribing, pharmacokinetics, equianalgesic dose, and replacement therapy. This comprehensive text provides clinicians, researchers, policy-makers and academicians a resource for all the relevant points in methadone prescribing and buprenorphine therapy.

Abstract
Pain is an increasingly common symptom in children and adolescents. Once a chronic pain condition affects different aspects of a child's life, it is considered a pain disorder, irrespective of the underlying physical condition. Nearly 5% of the paediatric population now suffer from severe chronic pain conditions. The treatment of pain disorders in childhood and adolescence is complex and needs to address a variety of influencing bio-psycho-social factors. Misconceptions like one of the "Three Thougt Traps" on the part of doctors, therapists and parents also have to be taken into account. This manual describes the inpatient treatment programme of one of the world's largest treatment facility for chronic pain in children--The German Paediatric Pain Centre--and the guidance provided is also applicable to outpatient pain management. Epidemiology, aetiology, diagnostics and treatment principles are all examined in detail. Criteria for inpatient treatment are explained, and the structure and organisation of a tertiary treatment centre for chronic pain are described. Therapeutic interventions like dealing with "Black Thoughts", "Distraction-ABC", "Stress Day" and the "Pain ProvocationTechnique" are presented with the aid of many examples of pain management and health care from clinical practice. Special features of pain therapy for children and adolescents suffering from comorbid mental disorders, family difficulties or physical complaints are also discussed.
Contents
Epidemiology of chronic pain in children and adolescents -- Pain disorder: a biopsychosocial disease -- Diagnostics of chronic pain in children and adolescents -- the basics of treating pain disorders in children and adolescents -- When to decide on inpatient pain therapy? -- Pain therapy in childhood and adolescent chronic pain -- Specifics of pain therapy in children with mental disorders, severe somatic disease, or psychosocial stress factors -- Is it all worthwhile? - Effectiveness in intensive interdisciplinary pain treatment -- Diagnostic tools.
