Anesthesia: A Very Short Introduction


By (author): Aidan O’Donnell

How does anesthesia work? What are the risks? And how does the anesthetist know if you are really asleep? In this brisk survey, Aidan O’Donnell takes the reader on a tour of modern anesthetic practice. He begins by explaining general anesthesia: what it is, how it is produced, and how it differs from natural sleep and other forms of unconsciousness. He goes on to consider the main categories of anesthetic drugs, including anesthetic vapors, intravenous agents, muscle relaxants, and analgesics, together with explanations of how they work and what their purpose is. O’Donnell also examines the large role anesthetists play in specialized areas such as intensive care medicine, pain medicine, and childbirth.

Essentials of Mechanical Ventilation, Third Edition


By (author): Dean Hess, Robert Kacmarek

A practical application-based guide to adult mechanical ventilation

A Doody’s Core Title for 2015.

This trusted guide is written from the perspective of authors who have more than seventy-five years’ experience as clinicians, educators, researchers, and authors. Featuring chapters that are concise, focused, and practical, this book is unique. Unlike other references on the topic, this resource is about mechanical ventilation rather than mechanical ventilators. It is written to provide a solid understanding of the general principles and essential foundational knowledge of mechanical ventilation as required by respiratory therapists and critical care physicians. To make it clinically relevant, Essentials of Mechanical Ventilation includes disease-specific chapters related to mechanical ventilation in these conditions.

Essentials of Mechanical Ventilation is divided into four parts:

Part One, Principles of Mechanical Ventilation describes basic principles of mechanical ventilation and then continues with issues such as indications for mechanical ventilation, appropriate physiologic goals, and ventilator liberation.

Part Two, Ventilator Management, gives practical advice for ventilating patients with a variety of diseases.

Part Three, Monitoring During Mechanical Ventilation, discusses blood gases, hemodynamics, mechanics, and waveforms.

Part Four, Topics in Mechanical Ventilation, covers issues such as airway management, aerosol delivery, and extracorporeal life support.

Essentials of Mechanical Ventilation is a true “must read” for all clinicians caring for mechanically ventilated patients.

You’re Wrong, I’m Right: Dueling Authors Reexamine Classic Teachings in Anesthesia


This text covers the major controversies and “myths” in each of the major anesthesia subspecialties. You’re Wrong, I’m Right is designed to be an easy and engaging evidence based read that offers the fast-paced give-and-take of a debate between two experts at the top of their game–capturing their full argument, including expressions of humor and displays of temper. Each point of contention begins with a real case, carefully selected to encapsulate the argument. One author then argues the “pro” side and another the “con.” Sometimes a single author may argue both sides. In doing so, the authors highlight the newest evidence and remind us of classic principles that have stood the test of time. At the end of the debate, readers can determine which argument they will use in their clinical practice, and may also consult a final “Consensus” section that identifies the editors’ and contributors’ “picks” of the one best practice in a range of different situations.

Manual of Pediatric Anesthesia


By (author): Jerrold Lerman, Charles J. Coté, David J. Steward

Authored by three world experts, this is a clinically focused book on pediatric anesthesia. “The Manual”, as it is known, has long dominated the market for a succinct and practical resource on administering anesthesia to children and is used by residents, general anesthesiologists, nurse anesthetists, and pediatric anesthesiologists. This new edition retains the basic structure of the book and is updated throughout. Text-heavy in the current edition, the Seventh Edition features the addition of figures to chapters where they are especially helpful (eg, the chapter on cardiovascular surgery and cardiac procedures) and makes greater use of headings to break up the text and guide reading.  From reviews of the Sixth Edition:”?This is an extremely well written book that I would recommend highly to anyone involved in anaesthetizing children. It is comprehensive enough to provide an excellent reference for trainees and general anaesthetists who occasionally deal with paediatric cases, while at the same time giving valuable supplemental information for paediatric anaesthetists encountering an unusual procedure or condition. In short, this is a book that would make a welcome addition to any anaesthetist’s mobile library.” –Anaesthesia
