Anesthesia Emergencies contains relevant step-by-step information on how to detect, manage, and treat complications and emergencies during the perioperative period. Concisely written, highlighted sections on immediate management and risk factors reinforce essential points for easy memorization, while consistent organization and checklists provide ease of learning and clarity. Anesthesia providers will find this book an indispensable resource, describing assessment and treatment of life-threatening situations, including airway, thoracic, surgical, pediatric, and cardiovascular emergencies.
