About the Authors
  • Pediatric anesthesiologists will encounter numerous challenges when caring for children as their work involves more than simply adjusting drug dosages and equipment for smaller patients. In response, this practical book provides clinical guidance in an easily accessible and digestible question-answer format. Case Studies in Pediatric Anesthesia reviews the entire breadth of pediatric anesthesia and pain management, taking a case-based approach. Each chapter commences with a clinical case or scenario, guiding the reader through a tailored discussion. The chapters review the pathophysiology, anesthetic techniques and surgical and perioperative considerations. High quality tables and figures feature throughout to help solidify key concepts. The chapters are prepared to be read in isolation and for reference when appropriate. Case Studies in Pediatric Anesthesia is aimed at anesthesiologists of all levels, from the trainee on their first pediatric rotation, to the pediatric fellow preparing for boards examination to the seasoned clinician.

    • Takes a case based approach to allow readers to garner a thorough background on a specific subject
    • Contains short, digestible chapters aimed at a trainee in a busy perioperative environment to delve into pediatric specific topics
    • Presents information in an easily digestible question and answer format
