Practical Anesthetic Management: The Art of Anesthesiology


By (author): C. Philip Larson Jr., Richard A. Jaffe

As Sir William Osler said “The practice of medicine is an art, based on science”.

This practical guide to managing patient expectations while maintaining a good medical practice presents as one of the only books of its kind. Written for anesthesiology residents in training, as well as practicing physicians, Practical Anesthetic Management focuses on giving clinicians the tools to create safer, more effective and efficient practices while catering to patient satisfaction. Featuring pearls for teaching purposes, Practical Anesthetic Management also covers topics like preoperative evaluation, tips on blood-gas analysis, and essentials of airway management, all complete with accompanying videos.

Out of Operating Room Anesthesia: A Comprehensive Review


This book covers all aspects of out of operating room anesthesia and deep sedation practice. The practical aspects of anesthesia are emphasized, with particular stress on management of un-anticipated adverse events. A concise, yet comprehensive description of relevant basic sciences is also included. Although the contributors are predominantly North American, essential elements of out of OR practice in countries other than the USA are incorporated.

Situations like those that contributed to the death of Joan Rivers are addressed with particular emphasis on their recognition, prevention and management. The importance of safety as the key element in providing anesthesia in remote or unfamiliar areas is highlighted and discussed. A lack of accurate documentation is a major drawback in out of OR anesthesia practice and the reader is drawn to the importance of documentation, both from a practical and medico legal standpoint. A separate chapter deals with research and future directions in out of OR anesthesia.

Out of Operating Room Anesthesia: A Comprehensive Review, is primarily aimed at all anesthesia providers: anesthesiologists, nurse anesthetists and residents. Specific chapters such as dental anesthesia, anesthesia for ER procedures and sedation for cosmetic procedures will be useful as a reference guide to physicians exposed to brief training in anesthesia during their non-anesthesia residency program.

Confessions of an Anesthesiologist: A Brief Career in Anesthesia ,1978 to 2016


By (author): William Milnes Cottrell MD

Anesthesiologist are service oriented professionals who make crucial decisions and perform critical, sometimes lifesaving procedures behind the scenes. The absence of drama usually implies a job well done. But after thirty eight years of private practice, I realize there is an important and intriguing story that needs to be told. A key part of this story is the history of how new intraoperative monitors, improved alarms and safety upgrades on anesthesia machines along with better drug and syringe labeling in the 1980’s dramatically decreased the risks associated with general anesthesia. In the 1990’s we saw an explosion of technology with the internet, cell phones and the early phase of computerized records. We also experienced the end of one medical corporation and the rapid growth of anesthesia services with a new one. The new millennium brought continued growth with advances in equipment, new technology and new sites of practice. The big surprise was a complete takeover of our hospital be a mega hospital system ( Carolinas HealthCare System ) in 2007.Unfortunately, these upgrades in our everyday practice were accompanied by a tragic death of a beloved partner, the demise of the county’s leading industry and the incarceration of my oldest son. With all the destabilizing factors surrounding our medical practice, it is noteworthy that some basic principles were immutable. Personal dedication and vigilance remained the core virtues required in our daily practice. The basic skills of airway management and circulatory support with IV access were ever critical to the successful practice of our art. Other skills and concerns at times gained center stage; but one could safely say: “the more things changed, the more they stayed the same.” So in these “confessions” I have dealt with a number of important issues; the changes in my medical practice, political and economic changes at the local and national level, personal and family instability, and lastly my own struggle to search for meaning and logic to these events. I think anyone who struggles in their career can relate to the need and sense of satisfaction in gaining that insight.
