Abstract
This book discusses, explains and provides detailed, up-to-date information on physics applied to clinical practice in anesthesiology, with the aid of simple examples from daily life. Almost everything that happens around us, including in the operating room and intensive care units, can be explained by physical laws. An awareness and understanding of relatively simple laws such as Bernoulli's theorem, Hagen-Poiseuille equation and Pascal's principle, to name just a few, offer anesthesiologists and intensivists fascinating insights into why they do what they do. Each of the 16 chapters starts with an everyday phenomenon, explains it with a physical law, and then shows why that law is important in anesthesia practice. Numerous illustrations are included for extra clarity. It is intended for anesthesiologists, intensivists, anesthesia teachers, anesthesia trainees, and medical students.
Contents
Preface -- Part I. Gases, bubbles and surroundings -- Perfect coffee and oxygen cylinders: the ideal gas law -- Boats, balloons, and air bubbles: Archimede's principle -- Air bubbles in the blood sample: better or worse oxygenation? Dalton's law and Fick's law -- Cold, sparkling drinks, and blood gas analysis: Henry's law -- Bubbles, tracheal tube cuffs, and reservoir bags: surface tension and Laplace's law -- Part II.

Hemodynamic monitoring -- Toothpaste, sea deeps, and invasive pressure monitoring: Stevin's law and Pascal's principle -- Heat, cardiac output, and what is the future: laws of thermodynamics -- Part IV. Forces in action -- Doors, steering wheels, and central venous catheters: the moment of a force (torque) -- Friction, trigonometry, and Newton's laws: all about Trendelenburg position -- Part V. Inhalation anesthesia -- Why a vaporizer is not exactly a vaporizer and why it weighs so much: saturated vapor pressure and heat of vaporization -- Thermal expansion: train tracks, thermostats and, again, vaporizers -- The voice of xenon: origin and propagation of sound -- Part VI. Waves -- Light, air pollution and pulse oximetry: the Beer-Lambert law -- Cerebral oximetry and why the sky is blue: Rayleigh scattering -- Catch me if you can: X-ray, Compton scattering and the inverse square law -- Part VII.

Abstract
As Sir William Osler said ǣThe practice of medicine is an art, based on science. The authors believe that the art of precision medicine is knowing when the science of medicine should not be applied to your patient. This practical guide to managing patient expectations while maintaining a good medical practice presents as one of the only books of its kind. Written for anesthesiology residents in training, as well as practicing physicians, Practical Anesthetic Management, focuses on giving clinicians the tools to create safer, more effective and efficient practices while catering to patient satisfaction. Featuring pearls for teaching purposes, Practical Anesthetic Management, also covers topics like preoperative evaluation, tips on blood-gas analysis, and essentials of airway management, all complete with accompanying videos.

Abstract
Comprehensive Guide to Education in Anesthesia is the first single-source volume on the current practice of teaching and learning in this specialty which has long been at the forefront of innovation in medical education. It is edited by one of the great anesthesiology educators in the United States and brings together contributions from leading educators from across the US covering all aspects of anesthesiology education, from medical school and post-graduate training to board certification and continuing medical education. Topics include best educational practices, closed claim analysis, giving feedback to superiors, residency and fellowship training and requirements, maintenance of certification, the role of simulation, interacting with other specialties, community and global outreach, and more. The book conveys the unique nature of the specialty and is aimed at medical students contemplating a career in anesthesiology, residents and fellows, educators, and administrators.

Abstract
In spite of medical advances and the increasing number of severely brain-injured patients, the assessment and treatment of patients recovering from coma remain challenging. For over 10 years now, the Coma Science Group has been working on the scientific exploration of disorders of consciousness, with both scientific and clinical research agendas. This book is the result of all this work. The aim is to offer both clinicians and researchers an opportunity to acquire expertise in a field which is constantly developing. Besides diagnostic, prognostic and ethical issues, this book includes well-established findings on assessment techniques (i.e., behavioral scales, electrophysiological explorations and structural/functional neuroimaging) and treatment procedures, but also techniques under development (i.e., the use of classifiers, brain-computer interfaces, transcranial magnetic stimulation or deep brain stimulation) which will stimulate ideas for future research. The Coma Science Group presents here a comprehensive book for readers, regardless of whether they are already familiar with the difficult but exciting field of disorders of consciousness.
Contents
Behavioral assessment and diagnosis of disorders of consciousness -- Prognosis of patients with altered state of consciousness -- Functional imaging and impaired consciousness -- Multivariate pattern recognition analysis: brain decoding -- Spectroscopy and diffusion tensor imaging in disorders of consciousness -- Electrophysiology and disorders of consciousness -- Brain computer interface: a communication aid? -- Using transcranial magnetic stimulation to measure cerebral connectivity in patients with disorders of consciousness -- Sleep in disorders of consciousness -- Sensory stimulation program -- Feasibility of oral feeding in patients with disorders of consciousness -- Pharmacological treatments -- Deep Brain Stimulation -- The ethics of managing disorders of consciousness -- Future perspectives of clinical coma science.
