Cardiac Anesthesia - Practical Aspects is a concise but complete guide to all topics of cardiac anaesthesia, demonstrating safe, evidence-based procedures. The book is divided into six sections, beginning with a section on general considerations; this includes an introduction and history of cardiac anaesthesia, guidance on the preoperative evaluation of patients with cardiovascular disease, and a chapter on cardiovascular drugs. Each chapter in the cardiac anaesthesia section covers a specific cardiovascular condition or surgical procedure. The specialty-based management section covers cardiovascular concerns relating to various surgical procedures, including neurological, urosurgical, orthopaedic, plastic, and liver surgery, including transplantation. The final section covers post-operative pain management for the cardiac patient. Enhanced by full colour images and illustrations throughout, Cardiac Anesthesia - Practical Aspects simplifies the practicalities of a complicated subject, making the book a useful resource for all anaesthetists and cardiac anaesthesiologists.
