Landmark Papers in Anaesthesia

By (author): Nigel Webster, Helen Galley

Evidence-based medicine is a concept that is at the forefront of anaesthesia. Clinicians are increasingly encouraged to practise patient management based on available evidence in the scientific literature. For example, new anaesthesia methods, e.g. regional anaesthesia, are being used more frequently based on case studies that show the efficacy and cost-savings associated with the treatment. Additionally, considering that many anaesthetists are required to cover a range of areas, information discussing proven methods as well as pitfalls to avoid are valuable to all those working in the field.

This book provides a detailed summary of the most important trials and studies in anaesthesia, ranging from neuroanaesthesia and anaesthesia for transplant, to paediatric and thoracic anaesthesia, allowing the reader to rapidly extract key results. Each chapter is written by a prominent anaesthetist in that particular field, and papers have been selected on a number of criteria, included impact factor, authors’ choices, or even because the conclusions reached do not indicate best practice. With this wealth of information collected into this newest volume in the ‘Landmark Papers in’ series, Landmark Papers in Anaesthesia is essential reading for all practicing anaesthetists.

Anaesthesia for Day Case Surgery (Oxford Anaesthesia Library)

Features: Used Book in Good Condition
By (author): Jan Jakobsson

The use of ambulatory or ‘day case’ surgery has grown tremendously in Western countries in recent years at the expense of more traditional in-hospital surgical care. In the US, up to 70-80% of all surgical procedures are currently performed on an ambulatory basis. The adaptation of day case surgery still varies considerably between countries and even within countries in Europe.
The transition from traditional in-hospital care to day case surgery or ambulatory procedure calls for vigilant planning of steps in preoperative care and a team effort to optimise all parts of patient care as well as care logistics. Drug selection, drug combination, drug administration and preparation of patients are all substantially different in the day case surgery setting than in the traditional in-hospital care setting. It is therefore crucial that anaesthetists, surgeons and other clinicians involved in administering day case surgery are aware of these differences to ensure safe and effective delivery of care.
Part of the Oxford Anaesthesia Library, this practical pocketbook provides an overview of the scope of day surgical anaesthesia and features simple and ready-to-use suggestions for the selection of drugs, techniques, and protocols to follow in everyday day-case surgical clinical practice.

Vascular Anaesthesia (Oxford Specialist Handbooks in Anaesthesia)

By (author): Jonathan Thompson, Richard Telford, Simon Howell

Providing a practical, current, evidence-based approach to all aspects of perioperative care for the patient with vascular disease, Vascular Anaesthesia is an essential read for all vascular anaesthetists, anaesthetic nurses and anyone else involved in the care of vascular patients throughout the world.

Vascular Anaesthesia summarizes current knowledge, particularly on interventional procedures (radiological, diagnostic, and surgical). This book also equips the trainee anaesthetist with the scientific and clinical knowledge to pass the Final FRCA examination. It enables doctors to approach vascular surgical patients with a firm understanding of a particular procedure, particularly its risks and options for perioperative management based on current best practice.

The management of the patient with vascular disease is evolving rapidly: this indispensible poket reference is of sufficient detail to update the regular and occasional vascular anaesthetist with current best practice for particular, common clinical scenarios. The book also equips the non-anaesthetic medical, nursing, and theatre staff with knowledge and understanding of all other aspects of perioperative care.

Andre P Boezaart. Primer of Regional Anesthesia Anatomy:: Macro-, Micro- and Sonoanatomy. 2nd Edition.

By (author): Andre P. Boezaart

Although it is not the purpose of this textbook to teach Regional Anesthesia (RA) techniques per se, experienced practitioners of RA and Acute Pain Medicine (APM) have long realized that if they truly understand the macro-, micro-, sono- and functional anatomy of a nerve or nerve plexus, they already know how to do the blocks of that nerve or plexus. To make this essential knowledge readily available in one concise and easy to study resource, Professor Boezaart and his colleagues have compiled this textbook for anyone who needs a deeper understanding of the complexities of the nervous system anatomy as it applies to RA and APM. With over 4 decades of personal experience researching, practicing and teaching these subjects, and over 150 years of combined experience of the co-authors, they are well qualified to bring this resource to the perpetual student. This 2nd Edition of “The Primer” is an extension of the very successful and popular 1st Edition, which did not include micro- and sonoanatomy. It comprises minimal text and maximal visual material, including photographs and the beautiful award winning illustrations of Mary Bryson. It is available as a single comprehensive book, or, alternatively, as 3 separate volumes for the practitioner who desires to study only a particular section of the anatomy. Volume 1 deals with the upper extremity, Volume 2 with the lower extremity and Volume 3 with the trunk and abdominal sympathetic ganglia. The book is so designed that viewing the figures, reading their legends, and watching the dynamic sonoanatomy and functional anatomy videos online, should give practitioners and students a more than adequate working knowledge to effectively perform most, if not all, nerve blocks. And certainly, enough knowledge to answer any ABA or other examination questions on RA and APM anatomy. This primer should be regarded as the absolute minimum anatomical knowledge required for proficiency in RA. Clicking on, or copying any URL in these pages into a browser, will take the reader to further educational material that was created as part of this textbook for those interested in a deeper study of the subject.

Monitoring the Nervous System for Anesthesiologists and Other Health Care Professionals

This widely praised, first-of-its-kind book has been thoroughly updated, expanded, and enriched with extensive new case material, illustrations, and link-outs to multimedia, practice guidelines, and more. Written and edited by outstanding world experts, this was the first and remains the leading single-source volume on intraoperative neurophysiological monitoring (IOM). It is aimed at graduate students and trainees, as well as members of the operative team, including anesthesiologists, technologists, neurophysiologists, surgeons, and nurses.

Now commonplace in procedures that place the nervous system at risk, such as orthopedics, neurosurgery, otologic surgery, vascular surgery, and others, effective IOM requires an unusually high degree of coordination among members of the operative team. The purpose of the book is to help students, trainees, and team members acquire a better understanding of one another’s roles and thereby to improve the quality of care and patient safety.

From the reviews of the First Edition:

“A welcome addition to reference works devoted to the expanding field of nervous system monitoring in the intraoperative period… will serve as a useful guide for many different health care professionals and particularly for anesthesiologists involved with this monitoring modality…An excellent reference…[and] a helpful guide both to the novice and to the developing expert in this field.” ??Canadian Journal of Anesthesia

“Impressive… [The book] is well written, indexed, and illustrated…The chapters are all extensively referenced. It is also very good value at the price….I would recommend this book to all residents and especially to all neuroanesthesiologists. It will make a worthwhile addition to their library.” ??Journal of Neurosurgical Anesthesiology
