Principles and Practice of Anesthesia for Thoracic Surgery will serve as an updated comprehensive review covering not only the recent advances, but also topics that haven't been covered in previously published texts: extracorporeal ventilatory support, new advances in chest imaging modalities, lung isolation with a difficult airway, pulmonary thrombo-endarterectomy, and chronic post-thoracotomy pain. Additionally, the book features clinical case discussions at the end of each clinical chapter as well as tables comprising detailed anesthetic management.
This book offers a comprehensive, up-to-date overview of optimal postoperative care in patients who have undergone thoracic surgery and discusses challenging issues that are of interest not only in the context of thoracic surgery but also more generally within the fields of anesthesia, intensive care, and pain medicine. The coverage ranges, for example, from use of non-invasive ventilation, extracorporeal membrane oxygenation, and new monitoring devices to fluid management, pain control, and treatment of arrhythmias. A key feature of the book is the exceptionally attractive list of authors, who represent the most authoritative experts on the topics that they address. The approach is appropriately multidisciplinary, acknowledging that in many centers thoracic anesthetists are responsible for care during the postoperative period. This book is exceptional in being devoted solely to postoperative care in thoracic surgery, even though the difficulties involved in thoracic operations sometimes exceed those of cardiac surgery, especially in the postoperative period.
This book reviews and describes the best practices of anesthesia in thoracic surgery, according to evidence-based medicine. It covers preoperative assessment, applied pharmacology, airway management and ventilation methods. The analgesic methods in this surgical specialty are also discussed. This book is aimed at all specialists in the world of anesthesiology and critical care as well as to physicians in training. It may also be of interest to thoracic surgeons and pulmonologists.

This book functions as a practical guide for the use of simulation in anesthesiology. Divided into five parts, it begins with the history of simulation in anesthesiology, its relevant pedagogical principles, and the modes of its employment. Readers are then provided with a comprehensive review of simulation technologies as employed in anesthesiology and are guided on the use of simulation for a variety of learners: undergraduate and graduate medical trainees, practicing anesthesiologists, and allied health providers. Subsequent chapters provide a ‘how-to” guide for the employment of simulation across wide range of anesthesiology subspecialties before concluding with a proposed roadmap for the future of translational simulation in healthcare. The Comprehensive Textbook of Healthcare Simulation: Anesthesiology is written and edited by leaders in the field and includes hundreds of high-quality color surgical illustrations and photographs.

The Comprehensive Textbook of Healthcare Simulation is a cohesive, single-source reference on all aspects of simulation in medical education and evaluation. It covers the use of simulation in training in each specialty and is aimed at healthcare educators and administrators who are developing their own simulation centers or programs and professional organizations looking to incorporate the technology into their credentialing process. For those already involved in simulation, the book will serve as a state-of-the-art reference that helps them increase their knowledge base, expand their simulation program’s capabilities, and attract new, additional target learners. Features: • Written and edited by pioneers and experts in healthcare simulation • Personal memoirs from simulation pioneers • Each medical specialty covered • Guidance on teaching in the simulated environment • Up-to-date information on current techniques and technologies • Tips from “insiders” on funding, development, accreditation, and marketing of simulation centers • Floor plans of simulation centers from across the United States • Comprehensive glossary of terminology
Comprehensive Guide to Education in Anesthesia is the first single-source volume on the current practice of teaching and learning in this specialty which has long been at the forefront of innovation in medical education. It is edited by one of the great anesthesiology educators in the United States and brings together contributions from leading educators from across the US covering all aspects of anesthesiology education, from medical school and post-graduate training to board certification and continuing medical education. Topics include best educational practices, closed claim analysis, giving feedback to superiors, residency and fellowship training and requirements, maintenance of certification, the role of simulation, interacting with other specialties, community and global outreach, and more. The book conveys the unique nature of the specialty and is aimed at medical students contemplating a career in anesthesiology, residents and fellows, educators, and administrators.
Introducing the 2nd Edition of this practical, yet comprehensive guide to tracheal intubation. Thoroughly updated and revised, this edition includes new chapters on recognition of difficulty, emergency airway access, fiberoptic intubation, pediatric intubation, management of patients with neck injuries, legal aspects, and the combitube. The text highlights potential problems and advises on how they can be avoided or resolved. Each chapter concludes with a list of key points for quick reference.
This book provides a guide to the anatomy and the surgical techniques required in thoracic and cardiothoracic surgery. It discusses the advantages and disadvantages of certain surgical procedures in relation to the lymphatic system, thyroid gland, chest wall and parathyroid glands, as well as pulmonary endarterectomy. Further, it addresses intraoperative and postoperative complications, and explores newer fields like microthymectomy, microlobectomy, and pain management for thoracic surgery patients. Providing an update on the latest advances in thoracic surgery, it appeals to general, thoracic, cardiothoracic, and cardiovascular surgeons. It also offers trainees insights into the foundation of the techniques and the relevant anatomy.
Introducing the first text to integrate cardiac, thoracic and vascular anesthesia in one accessible resource.
