Abstract
Recognized authorities in anesthesiology and surgical critical care present you with today's best management approaches for achieving optimal perioperative outcomes. They review the potential risks to all major organ systems by examining the incidence and significance of organ dysfunction ... assessing the etiology of particular organ dysfunctions ... defining the preoperative and intraoperative risk factors ... and offering perioperative protection strategies to minimize potential complications. A consistent chapter format - combined with color-coded algorithms, summary tables and boxes - enable you to quickly locate specific guidance. Top evidence- and outcome-based strategies from leading world authorities enable you to avoid and manage complications. A consistent format allows you to easily and efficiently access the very latest research and clinical practice guidelines. Color-coded algorithms, as well as abundant summary tables and boxes, save you valuable time in locating the best management approaches.

Abstract
This book describes the techniques, strategies, and drugs that have been demonstrated by well-documented randomized trials to influence survival in the perioperative setting. It takes into consideration all types of adult surgery and will be relevant to the evaluation of any patient undergoing an operative procedure. Each chapter focuses on a specific procedure, device, or drug. The scope is accordingly wide, with coverage of topics as diverse as chlorhexidine oral rinse, clonidine therapy, insulin infusion, intra-aortic balloon pump support, leukodepletion, neuraxial anesthesia, and noninvasive respiratory support, to name but a few. In addition, the risks and benefits of using a web-based consensus process (as in this book) to identify effective means of reducing perioperative mortality are discussed. The clear text is supported by "how to do" sections and "key points" boxes that provide easily accessible practical information. Written by acknowledged international experts, Reducing Mortality in the Perioperative Period will be of interest for a wide variety of specialists, including surgeons, cardiologists, anesthesiologists, and intensivists.
Contents
1. The risks and benefits of the consensus process -- 2. The process of consensus building -- 3. Noninvasive ventilation to reduce perioperative mortality -- 4.

Role of perioperative hemodynamic optimization in reducing perioperative mortality -- 7. Levosimendan to reduce perioperative mortality -- 8.

Abstract
This volume is a comprehensive, state-of-the-art review for clinicians with an interest in the peri-operative nutritionalmanagement of all surgical patients. The text reviews normal physiology, the pathophysiology of starvation and surgical stressors, and focuses on appropriate nutritional repletion for various common disease states. Specifically, the text addresses the severe metabolic demands created by systemic inflammation, infection, and major insults such as trauma and burns. In addition, the book addresses the growing problem of obesity in surgical populations, including appropriate strategies directed towards the metabolic management of these patients. The text is designed for clinicians across levels of training and provides clear and concise evidence based guidelines for the metabolic management and nutritional support of the surgical patient.

Abstract
This book offers a comprehensive, up-to-date overview of optimal postoperative care in patients who have undergone thoracic surgery and discusses challenging issues that are of interest not only in the context of thoracic surgery but also more generally within the fields of anesthesia, intensive care, and pain medicine. The coverage ranges, for example, from use of non-invasive ventilation, extracorporeal membrane oxygenation, and new monitoring devices to fluid management, pain control, and treatment of arrhythmias. A key feature of the book is the exceptionally attractive list of authors, who represent the most authoritative experts on the topics that they address. The approach is appropriately multidisciplinary, acknowledging that in many centers thoracic anesthetists are responsible for care during the postoperative period. This book is exceptional in being devoted solely to postoperative care in thoracic surgery, even though the difficulties involved in thoracic operations sometimes exceed those of cardiac surgery, especially in the postoperative period.
Contents
1. What happens to the lung during mechanical ventilation and one-lung ventilation? -- 2. Where should I send my patient after the operation? -- 3. Does it matter, how I ventilate the patient during the operation? -- 4. Can the postoperative pulmonary complications (PPC) be objectively evaluated? -- 5. Fluid management during and after the operation: Less is more or more is less? -- 6. How to organize the PACU? How to treat in PACU? -- 7. Should I blame the surgeon: Surgical complications and surgical treatment of the complications -- 8. Should every "myasthenic thymectomy" be sent to ICU? -- 9. How about esophagectomies? -- 10. Do the new devices of monitoring make sense compared to the "classical" ones? -- 11. What are the specific challenges in the postoperative mechanical ventilation after thoracic surgery? -- 12. Pros & Cons of non-invasive ventilation after thoracic surgery -- 13. Lung surgery and extracorporeal oxygenation -- 14. Pneumonia after thoracic surgery -- 15. When and how do I have to treat the arrhythmias after thoracic surgery? -- 16. Management of antiaggregated and anticoagulated patients scheduled for thoracic surgery: recommendations for venous thromboprophylaxis -- 17. Pain management following thoracic surgery -- 18. Rehabilitation for thoracic surgical patients: why, when and how -- 19. Perioperative care of thoracic trauma patient -- 20. Chronic obstructive pulmonary disease and the postoperative period.
