MORE ABOUT THIS BOOK

Main description:

Patients with a wide range of medical conditions undergo surgeries of varying levels of risk, and the evolving field of consult medicine aims to address the needs of these patients whether pre- or post-surgery. Creating a differential diagnosis, weighing risks and benefits, providing timely treatment--these skills are equally applicable to the internist whether he or she is in an office or in a perioperative setting. The Perioperative Medicine Consult Handbook provides useful information, advice and guidelines based on a combination of clinical experience and evidence-based medicine. It covers topics in many major clinical areas (anesthesiology, cardiology, pulmonology, gastroenterology, rheumatology, endocrinology, and many others ) and puts critical surgery information at a consult physician's fingertips. This book was originally created by the Medicine Consult Service team at the University of Washington Medical Center and has already gained traction as a handy resource in the field. Now fully updated and expanded with new topics (including substance abuse and obesity), this quick reference is sure to be indispensible for residents and consult physicians alike.

CUSTOMER REVIEWS

Average Rating 

From the reviews:

“This book presents an extremely practical approach for residents and internal medicine specialists to answer specific consultation requests concerning patients being prepared for surgery. … All consultants and residents can learn much from this book. … This is clearly one of the best books on perioperative management. I highly recommend this to clinicians, attending consultants, residents, OR, ICU, and postoperative nurses, and others such as pump technicians. There are numerous pearls for all.” (Vincent F. Carr, Doody's Book Reviews, March, 2013)

“The Perioperative Medicine Consult Handbook comprises a concise overview of issues in the perioperative management of the medical problems of patients. … provide a quick reference of steps to take in given situations with relatively light discussion of the evidence or rationale behind the action. … this handbook would serve as a reasonable quick reference for a junior trainee seeking to function in a perioperative consultative service.” (Rob Brown, Canadian Journal of Anesthesia/Journal canadien d'anesthésie, Vol. 60, 2013)
