Abstract
This text reviews the postoperative management of patients who have undergone cardiac surgical procedures, some of the most common and most complicated forms of surgery. These patients and their management are characterized by complex challenges, while among the factors determining ultimate clinical outcome, postoperative critical care is of major importance. This new and extensively updated edition of Postoperative Critical Care for Cardiac Surgical Patients maintains the general clinical approach in explaining and analyzing the course of clinical care in patients undergoing cardiac surgery, providing the reader with a practical "cookbook" of postoperative intensive care in adult cardiac patients. It has been extensively updated to include the developments in this field during the last few years, from new chapters on postoperative management of renal, gastrointestinal and respiratory systems, postoperative management of infectious and inflammatory complications, and postoperative care of transplant patients and postoperative safety. This book is of critical importance for cardiac surgeons, cardiac anesthesiologists and intensivists, and defines optimal daily practice for adult patients undergoing cardiac surgical procedures.
Contents
Introduction to postoperative care of adult cardiac surgical patients -- Risk and Outcome Assessments in adult Cardiac Surgery -- Cardiac physiology -- Cardiovascular Pharmacology -- Principles of Pharmacoeconomics -- Cardiovascular monitoring after adult Cardiac Surgery -- Postoperative Central Nervous System Monitoring after adult Cardiac Surgery -- Postoperative coagulation and bleeding: monitoring and hematologic management after adult Cardiac Surgery -- Cardiovascular Complications & Management after adult Cardiac Surgery -- Renal and GI Complications & their Management after adult Cardiac Surgery -- Respiratory Complications & Management after adult Cardiac Surgery -- CNS Complications & Management after adult Cardiac Surgery -- Infectious and inflammatory Complications & their Management after adult Cardiac Surgery -- Postoperative rhythm disorders after adult Cardiac Surgery -- Fluid management and electrolyte balance after adult Cardiac Surgery -- Acid-base balance and blood gas analysis after adult Cardiac Surgery -- Postoperative care of adult cardiac transplant patients -- Postoperative safety in adult Cardiac Surgery.

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.
