A Practical Approach To Neuroanesthesia is the latest addition in the Practical Approach to Anesthesiology series. This important volume provides updated information on the approach and management for both adult and pediatric patients' physiology dealing with neurosurgical conditions. The outline format with key concepts provides rapid access to clear diagnostic and management guidance for a broad range of neurosurgical and neuroanesthesiology procedures as well as neurocritical care problems. Each chapter provides a comprehensive review of clinical practice focusing on key points, clinical pearls, and key references. This new text provides expert recommendations on critical pre-operative, intra-operative and post-operative care for both adult and pediatric patients undergoing neurosurgical and neuroradiologic procedures. A Practical Approach To Neuroanesthesia is a concise, portable reference suitable for use by anesthesia residents and fellows, practicing anesthesiologists, nurse anesthetists, and anesthesiologist assistants.
