As the practice of vascular anesthesia becomes increasingly recognized as a major subspecialty of anesthesia, there is a growing need among current practitioners to evolve their neuraxial, regional, and general anesthesia techniques and expand their understanding of the latest evidence. Vascular Anesthesia Procedures will review the essential topics of the field from vascular anatomy to common vascular procedures, anesthetic techniques in general and regional anesthesia, complications, perioperative patient monitoring, and post-operative management. Chapters are concise, up-to-date, evidence-based, and richly illustrated throughout.
