Abstract
The Difficult Airway provides comprehensive textual and visual coverage of how to deal with patients who have expected or unexpected difficult airways. The book begins with a review of current definitions of the difficult airway, its incidence, and the evolution of algorithms to facilitate its management. The chapters that follow offer a comprehensive update on the techniques and concepts described in the American Society of Anesthesiologists' Difficult Airway Algorithm. Noted experts in each of the techniques have been recruited by the book editors to present the information. Figures throughout the book illustrate important points and procedures. This is a wonderful resource for health care professionals who are concerned with the management of the difficult airway, including anesthesiologists, intensive care physicians, emergency room physicians, nurses, and out-of-hospital first responders.

Written and presented in a simple and didactic format, it intends to that ease learning and settlement of doubts in pediatric respiratory diseases. The reader is naturally introduced into the physiology, diagnosis, syndromes, diseases and the treatment associated to the respiratory pathologies affecting children. The chapters within this book includes algorithms for the treatment of syndromes and updated treatment proposals grounded on evidence-based medicine for more than 50 pulmonary diseases of pediatric importance. Pediatric Respiratory Diseases – A Comprehensive Textbook is an essential material for the proper clinical approach of respiratory diseases in children. It is intended for all interns, residents and fellows with interest in pediatric pulmonary medicine, as well as to physicians, general practitioners, pediatricians and pulmonologist who face pediatric respiratory disorders on their clinical practice.
