Recent Advances in Anaesthesia and Intensive Care: Volume 24

Recent Advances in Anaesthesia and Intensive Care, volume 24 is the latest book in this very successful and long-established series (originally entitled Recent Advances in Anaesthesia and Analgesia) to present a collection of cutting-edge topics for anaesthetists. It has been compiled by some of the world's leading authorities in their subjects and builds on the successful formula of the previous volumes. As the title suggests, these latest volumes have increased input from the field of intensive care, including a particularly topical chapter on intensive care outreach. Other chapters include deaths under anaesthesia, use of simulators in anaesthesia, and transoesophageal echocardiography. Trainee and practising anaesthetists and intensivists at all levels will find this book extremely relevant in their daily clinical practice.

Evidence-Based Practice of Anesthesiology, 1st edition

Evidence-Based Practice of Anesthesiology, by Lee A. Fleisher, MD, summarizes the best available evidence concerning the most common clinical questions that anesthesiologists face every day, so you will have an informed basis for making effective patient management decisions. This new edition covers 24 new topics and explores a full range of important issues in perioperative management?discussing the clinical options, examining the relevant research, and presenting expert recommendations. It features the latest information on clinical situations and reviews all clinical options based on the most recent clinical trials, providing a valuable framework for translating evidence into practice.
Most chapters pose a question: ‘What drugs decrease postoperative bleeding?’; ‘Should additives be used for peripheral nerve blocks?’ The chapters are grouped as preoperative preparation, perioperative management, regional anaesthesia, monitoring, and then some sub-specialty groupings. The pattern of each chapter is introduction, options, evidence, uncertainties, controversies, guidelines (which are, when they exist, published guidelines of American societies), and a box giving the nitty-gritty: the author's recommendations. It is not a book for reading, but a book for consulting when the question arises—which these questions do, commonly.

"The book by Fleisher is balanced, informative, and useful to clinicians who need to make decisions. [It] provides clear recommendations, which are informed by evidence and experience, to caregivers." -Anesthesiology, July 2005
