Perioperative care is the care that is given before and after surgery.
This textbook is a complete guide to the anaesthetic and critical care management of patients undergoing complex surgeries in all organ systems of the body. Topics cover all age groups - neonates, children, and adults.
Divided into 11 sections, the book begins with a general overview of critical care in the perioperative period discussing airway management, pain, fluid and electrolyte therapy, shock, arterial blood gas analysis, respiratory failure and mechanical ventilation, and thromboembolism.
The following sections cover surgeries in different organ systems and patient groups - cardiothoracic and vascular, neurosciences, paediatrics, obstetrics and gynaecology, gastrointestinal, genitourinary, orthopaedics, head and neck, and transplantation.
The final section explains selected miscellaneous topics including nutrition, haemodynamic monitoring, echocardiography, renal replacement therapy, and antibiotics.
