To an unusual degree, the shared “working space” of otolaryngologists and anesthesiologists means that issues important to one are important to the other. Anesthesiology and Otolaryngology is the first book to address the closely overlapping information needs of both groups of specialists. It is collaboratively written and edited by anesthesiologists and otolaryngologists, and the chapters are carefully designed to insure maximal relevance to members of both specialties.
The heart of the book consists of chapters on managing patients during the full range of otolaryngologic procedures. These chapters are structured chronologically, and otolaryngologic and anesthesiologic perspectives are systematically presented for each operative stage.
Foundational topics such as gross and radiographic anatomy, physiology, and pharmacology are covered. The book includes a unique chapter on oxygen delivery systems that serves as a comprehensive review for anesthesiologists and an overview for the otolaryngologist. Special topics addressed include acute and chronic pain management, and the logistics of managing an office-based surgical practice.
· “All-in-one” reference for otolaryngologists and otolaryngologic anesthesiologists
· Surgical and anesthesiologic perspectives marshaled for pre-operative, intraoperative, and postoperative periods
· Pearls and Insights at end of chapters
· Organized by surgical region
· Special challenges of difficult airway and of pediatric otolaryngologic procedures addressed

The management of pain can often be achieved by medications, physical therapies, or by various procedural techniques that have evolved in recent decades. With the trend towards more outpatient surgeries and less invasive surgeries to decrease perioperative risk, perioperative time, and costs, the practice of anesthesia is evolving to utilize regional anesthesia techniques both for inpatients and outpatients. Regional anesthesia is being performed for outpatient surgeries, obstetric anesthesia, trauma, chronic pain states, and for acute post-operative pain management. Therefore, it is paramount for physicians and nurses practicing anesthesia to understand the essentials of regional anesthesia, its evolving techniques, and appropriate utilization of modern equipment and technology to provide care safely.
Essentials of Regional Anesthesia, Second edition, is a concise, up-to-date, evidence-based handbook that enables every resident, physician and nurse to understand the basics of regional anesthesia and the standard of care guidelines for the practice of regional anesthesia in a comprehensive fashion. This new edition includes:
· Updated and new chapters on Ambulatory, Critical Care, and Obstetrics topics
· Full color, clear, detailed, anatomic drawings
· Clinically relevant, practical aspects of regional anesthesia
· International contributing authors who are experts in their field
· Latest ultrasound techniques and images

This book presents general measures and offers a comprehensive overview of anesthetic considerations for specific serious medical problems in pregnant patients, with a focus on the anesthetic management of non-obstetric disorders during pregnancy and pregnancy-induced diseases.
Although many books on this topic are available, this unique volume addresses specific disorders that may be encountered in daily obstetric anesthesia practice and discusses in detail serious medical problems during pregnancy. As such it is a valuable tool, providing targeted information particularly on the anesthetic considerations and management of not only non-obstetric diseases during pregnancy but also pregnancy- induced diseases.

The accuracy with which clinicians can locate nerves and blood vessels has increased greatly with the development of portable handheld ultrasound scanners, and no specialty has felt the benefit more than anesthesia. This practical atlas of ultrasound anatomy addresses the two main challenges for anyone learning ultrasound-guided techniques: 1. Where do I place the probe? 2. What exactly am I looking at? Each nerve block or vascular access site is illustrated with: • an anatomical line illustration • a clinical photograph showing the correct ultrasound probe position • the ultrasound scan • a line illustration of the scan labelled to indicate the salient anatomical features All relevant anatomic regions are included: upper limb, lower limb, neck, thorax and abdomen. Concise notes for each entry indicate scan landmarks and give useful tips and advice on potential complications. Sonoanatomy for Anesthetists is an essential resource for anesthetists, intensivists and chronic pain specialists.

Vascular surgery and anaesthesia have changed considerably in recent years and become recognised subspecialties, although non-specialist anaesthetists continue to provide much of the care for emergency vascular surgical patients. Core Topics in Vascular Anaesthesia brings together the clinical expertise of global leaders in the field in a comprehensive review of contemporary practice. Detailed discussion is included on every aspect of clinical management: • Preoperative risk assessment, including cardiopulmonary exercise testing and risk modification using pharmacological and cardiac interventions • Anaesthesia for major vascular operations including carotid endarterectomy, complex endovascular aortic surgery and repair of ruptured aortic aneurysms • Intraoperative management of high risk patients including advanced monitoring techniques, fluid management, blood conservation and transfusion, major haemorrhage and treatment of coagulopathy Practical and well illustrated, Core Topics in Vascular Anaesthesia is essential reading for anaesthetists, intensive care physicians and vascular surgeons.
