Core Topics in Endocrinology in Anesthesia and Critical Care provides a comprehensive, practical overview of the perioperative management of patients with endocrine disorders, giving clear diagnostic advice and management guidelines. This book considers the management of patients with endocrine disorders of the pituitary, thyroid, parathyroid and adrenal glands, including rarer disorders such as MEN syndrome. It then considers all aspects of the perioperative management of diabetic patients, including paediatric, obstetric and ambulatory patients.

Finally it discusses endocrine disorders in the critically ill patient, covering such issues as the topical conundrum of glucose control and the management of diabetic metabolic acidosis, thyroid storm and myxoedema coma. Every chapter reviews the relevant anatomy and pathophysiology and the latest developments in defining the genetic causes are also considered where appropriate. Core Topics in Endocrinology in Anesthesia and Critical Care is an invaluable tool for all anaesthetists and intensivists in their daily clinical practice.

Basic Science for Anaesthetists

 Anesthesiology  Comments Off on Basic Science for Anaesthetists
Jun 292020
 

The aim of this book is to provide a concise and understandable review of the physics, mathematics, statistics, physiology and pharmacology of anaesthesia. A revised edition of a book originally titled Anaesthetic Data Interpretation, the new title better reflects the contents of the book. There are several additional chapters relevant to the Primary FRCA examination. New topics covered include the ventilatory response to oxygen and carbon dioxide, which is now a core knowledge requirement, new concepts in cardiovascular physiology, receptor types and the molecular actions of anaesthetics. Some of the revisions reflect advances in technology; for example, the uses of the capnograph and the oxygen analyser have advanced considerably in recent years. Basic Science for Anaesthetists is a concise and informative text which will be invaluable for trainee anaesthetists, and an aid to teaching for the trainers.

Principles of Physiology for the Anaesthetist, Third Edition

 Anesthesiology  Comments Off on Principles of Physiology for the Anaesthetist, Third Edition
Jun 152020
 

Principles of Physiology for the Anaesthetist, now in its Third Edition, continues to provide candidates with a “tailor-made” alternative to more general physiology textbooks and delivers information designed and written specifically with the trainee anaesthetist in mind.

The book covers the physiology of all major organ systems, with specific emphasis on the nervous, respiratory, and cardiovascular systems. In addition, special sections on the physiology of pain, the physiology of ageing, and the physiological effects of specific environments—all highly relevant to anaesthetic practice—have been incorporated.

The third edition builds upon several new features introduced in the last edition: learning objectives, areas for reflection, and a handy summary of physiological equations and tables. Copious diagrams throughout support the text and aid in the understanding of difficult concepts.

The authors integrate their teaching experience in physiology into the content to improve the understanding of the fundamentals of human physiology in relation to the work of the anaesthetist. This book will remain an invaluable reference throughout anaesthetic training and beyond, as well as a useful revision aid.

Basic Physiology for Anaesthetists

 Anesthesiology, Physiology  Comments Off on Basic Physiology for Anaesthetists
May 292020
 

Every trainee in anaesthesia requires a thorough understanding of basic physiology and its application to clinical practice. Now in its second edition, this comprehensively illustrated textbook bridges the gap between medical school and reference scientific texts. It covers the physiology requirements of the Primary FRCA examination syllabus. Chapters are organised by organ system, with particular emphasis given to the respiratory, cardiovascular and nervous systems. The practical question-and-answer format helps the reader prepare for oral examinations, while ‘clinical reference’ boxes translate the physiological concepts to clinical practice. This new edition has been thoroughly updated and revised throughout, and includes six new chapters including the physiology of the eye, upper airway and exercise testing. It provides junior anaesthetists with an essential ‘one stop’ physiology resource.

Essentials of Trauma Anesthesia and Intensive Care (May 2020 Release)

 Anesthesiology, Critical Care  Comments Off on Essentials of Trauma Anesthesia and Intensive Care (May 2020 Release)
May 092020
 

The glory of medicine is that it constantly moves forward; there is always more to learn. The ills of today do not cloud the horizon of tomorrow, but act as a spur to greater effort—William James Mayo. In keeping with the lines of Mayo, we bring the readers a publication that is the first of its kind, offering a comprehensive overview of managing trauma patients through data and studies. This book is a humble effort to bring forth extensive insight and knowhow on managing trauma patients both perioperatively and in the intensive care unit.

The burden of trauma is exponentially increasing around the world—even more so in India. Appropriate and timely management is critical to a positive outcome, warranting a sound approach and a solid understanding of the pathophysiology of trauma patients. The ATLS® principles help protocolize the
management of the emergency department; however, there is inadequate literature on trauma patient management in the operating room and thereafter in the intensive care unit. Anesthesiologists are often involved in the overall care of trauma patients in the emergency department, OR, and the ICU; therefore,
they need continuing education to enhance their knowledge and skills. The contents of this book were chosen to address the lacunae in the knowledge and management of trauma patients and to keep physicians and anesthesiologists updated on the state of the art. Special emphasis have been given to topics such as airway management, head trauma, and thoracic and spine injury. One neglected, yet important, topic—brain death and subsequent organ donation—is discussed in detail.

The inspiration for this book was the lack of a textbook that succinctly addresses this critical subject, especially in the Indian sub-continent. A bleeding polytrauma patient, in extremis, may initially appear to be a gruesome, non-salvageable case, prompting anesthesiologists to prematurely terminate resuscitative efforts. However, if appropriately managed during the initial phases, not only with correct scientific knowledge but also with empathy and compassion, a young, healthy, productive life can be saved, thus giving a feeling of gratification.

No words can adequately express my gratitude toward Prof MC Misra, Director, All India Institute of Medical Sciences and Chief, JPN Apex Trauma Center. He has been a constant inspiration not only to me but to the entire medical fraternity as we work toward a common cause—providing high quality care to trauma
patients. My sincere thanks go to Prof MK Arora for his invaluable support and guidance. It would have been difficult to write and finish this book without the moral support and positive attitude of my beloved teacher, Dr Bharati Tendolkar, who is a mother figure and constant inspiration for me. This book would not have been possible without the efforts, feedback, and suggestions of all co-authors, whose inputs provided a huge impetus for the project. The work of my dear colleagues and the staff at JPN Apex Trauma Center was always of the highest standards, whether it was providing photos, X-rays, or CT images. I owe gratitude to the technical staff of OT assistants and hospital attendants for their unconditional support. I am also obliged to Shri Narayanji, Anil Bhat and Lakhan for volunteering to complete photography and other jobs in the OR. My special thanks to Ms Pallavi Tiwari, who helped me throughout the editing process.

I am sure this book will provide knowledge and translate into a better understanding of the effective
management of trauma patients in the OR and the intensive care unit.
