MORE ABOUT THIS BOOK

Main description:

The only available resource to provide cutting-edge, in-depth coverage of the links between obesity and anesthesia in surgery, the reader-friendly Handbook of Perioperative Anesthesia: Complications and Challenges of the Obese Patient guides the practicing anesthesiologist through each stage of surgery for the obese patient. This clinically relevant text thoroughly illustrates the unique challenges and complications the anesthesiologist faces when supervising and administering drug delivery during surgery. Practical and hands-on, this source also advises the anesthesiologist on how to avoid potential risks and ensure speedy patient recovery post-operation.


Easily referenced, this handbook clearly addresses treatment and management of the obese patient in the three chronological stages of surgery:





  • Preoperative – includes information on systemic patient evaluation and surgery preparation, emphasizing related areas of concern in the obese patient (cardiac, pulmonary, endocrine, and others) to help the anesthesiologist foresee how a patient will fare during surgery

  • Intraoperative – provides a thorough discussion of the latest in procedural technique, drug and fluid administration, patient monitoring, and airway management

  • Postoperative – steps the anesthesiologist can take following surgery to optimize patient results



In addition, this handbook explores special situations that anesthesiologists may encounter during surgery, including the needs of pregnant and pediatric patients, as well as patients with needs outside of the hospital setting.
