About the Authors
  • Since the publication of the first edition of Core Topics in Cardiac Anesthesia, the clinical landscape has undergone significant change. Recent developments include the increased use of electrophysiology, the resurgence of primary percutaneous intervention in acute coronary syndromes, the use of percutaneous devices in patients previously considered inoperable, and the withdrawal of aprotinin. Against this landscape, this invaluable resource has been fully updated. New chapters are dedicated to right heart valves, pulmonary vascular disease, cardiac tumours and cardiac trauma. All other chapters have been updated according to the latest international guidelines. Written and edited by an international author team with a wealth of expertise in all aspects of the perioperative care of cardiac patients, topics are presented in an easy to digest and a readily accessible manner. Core Topics in Cardiac Anesthesia, Second Edition is essential reading for residents and fellows in anesthesia and cardiac surgery and clinical perfusionists.

    • Reviews all aspects of patient care, from relevant anatomy, pharmacology and pre-op assessment to cardiac OR procedures and cardiac critical care
    • Concise chapters give readers essential information without repetition, making this an invaluable quick reference resource
    • An international team of contributors give a broad spectrum of best practice
