There is a decreased tolerance for error when pediatric patients undergo medical procedures. It is, therefore, important to accomplish procedures as quickly and accurately as possible. Pediatric Anesthesia Procedures is designed to provide rapid access to information in order to solve a clinical problem as it is occurring. Its pictorial, highly visual format will allow anesthesiologists and other clinicians to review and 'see' the procedures during planning stages, making it a practical resource to keep in the operating room for quick and easy reference during time-pressured situations. This will make it especially useful for practitioners doing procedures that they perform infrequently-or must perform for the first time during an emergent or urgent situation.

The chapters within cover a wide variety of basic and advanced pediatric anesthesia procedures and provide generously illustrated step-by-step guidelines for performing them. Each is introduced with an accessible description, followed by a variety of high-quality graphic images-including detailed photographs, magnetic resonance images, computed tomography images, and ultrasound images-and detailed instructions.
