Now in its Sixth Edition, this best-selling text is the only anesthesiology book with a case-based, problem-oriented approach. It is widely used to study for the American Board of Anesthesiology's oral exams and as a refresher for practicing anesthesiologists and CRNAs.
Chapters cover 62 surgical procedures and problems in all major areas of anesthesiology. Each chapter presents a case and asks questions about preoperative evaluation, patient preparation, intraoperative management, and postoperative care. Questions are followed by thorough explanations and references.
This edition has a broadly based authorship, with two new Associate Editors and one-third new contributors. New chapters cover postoperative pain management and electroconvulsive therapy.
