Complications of Regional Anesthesia
Finucane's book should join the required reading list for residents on a regional anesthesia rotation... The beauty of Finucane's book is that although it addresses the contemporary profile of complications, after reading it, I am now even more enthusiastic about regional anesthesia
This updated and expanded 2nd Edition offers practical advice on the prevention and management of complications associated with regional anesthesia and nerve blocks. Besides comprehensive coverage .of potential pitfalls for the practicing anesthesiologist, the book adds new material exploring outcomes of regional and general anesthesia. The book offers full chapters on specific anatomic sites, including spinal, epidural, ophthalmic, and brachial plexus anesthesia. Other chapters address specialties of practice: obstetrics, pediatrics, and cancer. The book includes clinical studies and closed case analyses, and practical advice on prevention of complications. A concluding section offers detailed, real-world oriented practice guidelines for Regional Anesthesia.
