This second edition of Clinical Pediatric Anesthesia: A Case-Based Handbook offers a comprehensive review of the options, advantanges, and disadvantages of different aspects of the perioperative management of the pediatric patient, as well as examples of a wide range of relevant clinical scenarios.

tertiary children's hospitals, this highly accessible text provides readers with multiple approaches to the anesthetic care of the pediatric patient. Each chapter includes an introduction to the topic, followed by learning objectives, clinical vignettes, and a discussion section styled in a
question-and-answer format, concluding with a summary of the highest-yield and most salient information. Chapters also provide annotated references and suggestions for further reading to facilitate in-depth study of topic. The variety of cases presented, along with the contributors' expertise, render valuable real-life clinical situations that promote critical thinking and evaluation necessary for all pediatric anesthesiology consultants.
