Abstract
This comprehensive textbook, covering all aspects of the perioperative management of patients undergoing organ transplantation, serves as the standard reference for clinicians who care for transplant patients on a day-to-day basis as well as those who encounter organ transplantation only occasionally in their clinical practice. Anesthesia and Perioperative Care for Organ Transplantation covers transplantation of the heart, lung, liver, pancreas, and kidney, as well as multivisceral and composite tissue graft transplantations. For each kind of transplantation, the full spectrum of perioperative considerations is addressed: preoperative preparation, intraoperative anesthesia management, surgical techniques, and postoperative care. Each chapter contains evidence-based recommendations, relevant society guidelines, management algorithms, and institutional protocols as tables, flow diagrams, and figures. Photographs demonstrating surgical techniques, anesthesia procedures, and perfusion management are included. Anesthesia and Perioperative Care for Organ Transplantation is for anesthesiologists and critical care physicians; transplantation surgeons; nurse anesthetists; ICU nurses; and trainees.

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. Respiratory risks -- The patient with SOAS -- The patient with end-stage pulmonary disease -- Part 3.

Abstract
This text presents the basic and clinical foundations of anesthesiology. It is easy to read and is comprehensive without being lengthy. Readers can test their knowledge with the "Clinical Review" questions at the end of chapters and will appreciate the abundance of color illustrations, clinical images, and practical tables. Chapters are highly organized and make liberal use of bulleted text where appropriate. Everything needed in a single source is here, from clinically important basic science to the full range of anesthetic practice: pain management and regional anesthesia, including ultrasound-guided peripheral nerve blocks; specialty anesthesia; preoperative evaluation and intraoperative management; ambulatory and non-operating room anesthesia; and critical care. The book also includes topical chapters on the obese patient, infectious diseases, alternative medicine, substance abuse, cosmetic surgery, robotic surgery, the hazards of working in the operating room, and residency requirements and guidelines.

Abstract
Reflecting the rapid growth of pain medicine and of ultrasound as a tool, this Third Edition is more comprehensive and inclusive than previous editions and features additional pages, tables, diagrams, and color illustrations. In addition to the discipline of Anesthesiology, other specialists, who use local and regional anesthesia techniques, (surgeons, ophthalmologists, emergency medicine physicians and dentists), have also contributed to this edition of the book. Complications of Regional Anesthesia, with its newly added subtitle, Principles of Safe Practice in Local and Regional Anesthesia, stresses the relatively new emphasis and importance on safety and prevention and broadens the discussion to include the practice and administration of not just regional but also local anesthesia. Each chapter has been thoroughly revised, brought up-to-date, and features full color images. Individual chapters cover complications associated with specific nerve blocks; IV and catheter methods; obstetric regional anesthesia; pediatric regional anesthesia; ophthalmic regional anesthesia; and treatment of acute and chronic pain.

Abstract
In anesthesiology, pain medicine, and critical care, practitioners at all levels need help to stay current with the continually evolving drug knowledge-base, and trainees need tools to prepare for in-training and board exams that increasingly test their knowledge of pharmacology. This practical book is aimed at both readerships. It features a unique and practical chapter on the United States Food and Drug Administration (FDA) "black box" warnings that describe what safety precautions should be taken with commonly used drugs. The editors and contributors are pharmacology experts representing a cross-section of clinical specialties and institutions in the United States and include pharmacologists, pharmacists, as well as physicians.
