Abstract
The APICE 2013 yearbook examines recent advances in various aspects of critical care medicine and highlights the importance of effective communication among researchers, scientists, and clinicians. Among the many topics addressed are trauma care organization, the management of patients with cardiovascular, kidney, and lung disorders, issues relating to severe infections and sepsis, and the humanization of end of life care. The overriding goal of the book is to provide guidance and stimulate further thought on how professional performance in critical care medicine can be improved. "Triple B" translational research, from the bench to the bedside and back again (via the translation of clinical observations into new research questions), will play a major role in this context, and is particularly discussed in the chapter about sepsis and organ dysfunction. There is no doubt that the transfer of far-reaching and dynamic developments in molecular and cellular biology into clinical practice will be a key component in delivering the care required by individual patients.

Abstract
This book describes the approach to anesthetic and perioperative management in different categories of high-risk patient scheduled to undergo elective noncardiac surgery. Individual sections focus on patients with conditions entailing cardiac and hemodynamic risks, respiratory risks, renal and metabolic risks, neurological risks, and other forms of risk. For each condition, up-to-date guidance is provided on risk evaluation, risk stratification, and intraoperative and postoperative anesthetic management. This is the first time that such different clinical situations have been gathered together in a single textbook of anesthesiology. All of the authors are international experts with extensive clinical experience. The aim is to provide trainee anesthesiologists with clear guidance that will prove invaluable when managing a wide range of patients with serious illnesses or conditions that pose a significant anesthetic risk. The book will also serve as a valuable reference for more experienced anesthesiologists and intensivists.
Contents
Part 1. Cardiac and hemodynamic risks -- The patient with acute coronary syndrome -- The patient with advanced chronic heart failure -- The patient with severe pulmonary arterial hypertension -- The patient with severe aortic stenosis -- The patient with congenital cardiac disease -- The patient with an automatic implanted device -- The patient with intra-abdominal hyperpression -- Part 2.
