Provides a comprehensive evidence-based guide to the management of the growing population of patients who require perioperative care Perioperative Medicine: Medical Consultation and Co-Management is the first comprehensive reference text developed specifically for hospitalists but envisioned also to help internists, anesthesiologists, allied health professionals, fellows, residents, and medical students manage various aspects of the medical care of the surgical patient. The book features both the preoperative and postoperative medical management of the surgical patient. It focuses on systems, operations, quality of perioperative care, and preoperative assessment of the patient, all in consideration with system-specific risk and evidence-based strategies that minimize risk. It places special emphasis on care of the older hospitalized surgical patient and offers a thorough discussion of post-operative conditions and their management. Chapters cover vital topics such as: Hospitalist as a Medical Consultant Co-Management of the Surgical Patient Preoperative Evaluation Improving the Quality and Outcomes of Perioperative Care Developing, Implementing, and Operating a Preoperative Clinic Assessing and Managing Risk of Major Organ Systems Assessing and Managing Disorders for Surgery Postoperative Care and Co-Management by Surgery Type Managing Common Postoperative Conditions With the core responsibilities of perioperative care falling more and more on the shoulders of hospitalists, internists, and allied health professionals, Perioperative Medicine is a much-needed guide for managing the clinical and operational issues associated with caring for hospitalized surgical patients.
Medical handbooks rarely provide advice on what to do when your patient has to undergo surgery. Similarly surgical handbooks focus on conditions that need surgery, and the main problems caused by that surgery. In contrast, Perioperative Medicine is a concise, practical text that gives junior doctors the guidance that they need to cope with medical problems in surgical patients that might occur early in pre-assessment clinic, the night before surgery, out-of-hours or on the wards post-operatively. It is an invaluable guide to covering surgical patients, and appeals to a wide readership, including junior surgical doctors, medical doctors covering surgical acute admissions, and members of the hospital-at-night teams. It will also appeal to medical students interested in learning more about the practical management of patients, and all those who need to know how to sort out common, important and occasionally life threatening "non-surgical" conditions that frequently happen in surgical patients, such as heart attacks, strokes and asthma. This handbook is an updated version of the handbook published in 2000 in the Oxford Pocket Medicine series, entitled Peri-operative medicine - managing surgical patients with medical problems. This new edition is fully revised and is written as a guide for trainees in surgery (and its sub-disciplines) dealing with day-to-day medical problems arising in surgical patients. It covers all the fundamentals of the medical care of surgical patients, with new sections on surgical oncology, theatre etiquette, and planning lists, with most text rewritten to reflect new headings and recent guidelines.
Patients with a range of medical conditions undergo surgeries of varying levels of risk, and the evolving field of consult medicine aims to address their needs, whether pre- or post-surgery. This new edition of 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. New to this edition are chapters on thyroid disease, restrictive lung disease, sickle cell disease, inflammatory bowel disease, nutrition, and perioperative care of elderly patients. The entire volume has been streamlined for a more precise presentation of essential perioperative management guidelines. Originally created by the Medicine Consult Service team at the University of Washington Medical Center, and now fully updated into a comprehensive second edition, this quick reference is sure to be indispensable for residents and consult physicians alike.
This book addresses those aspects of anaesthetic practice in perioperative medicine which have a significant impact on both the immediate and the long-term outcome for the surgical patient. Perioperative Medicine is the natural evolution of anaesthesia from a main focus on the patient in the operating room to a responsibility for the care of the patient from the time that the decision to operate is made, through to discharge from hospital. The contributors, well-respected authors in their field, discuss the role of the perioperative medicine specialist in areas ranging from pre-operative assessment and physiological optimization via pre-habilitation, to intra-operative anaesthetic management, and post-operative care. Controversial topics discussed include fluid therapy, anaesthesia and cancer outcomes, pharmacological management of cardiac risk, and the evolution of acute to chronic pain. Developments in regional anaesthesia, quality of recovery scoring, and lung ultrasound, are described. It is hoped that the chapters contained in this book will help to define the nascent specialty that is Perioperative Medicine, and encourage further debate, research, and expansion of this vital new frontier in anaesthetic care.

An authoritative account of all aspects of perioperative care for surgical patients.
Undergraduate medical education is continuously changing to meet the requirements for the training of future medical practitioners. Over the last few years the concept of perioperative medicine has evolved, encompassing the preoperative assessment and optimisation of patients, the intraoperative and postoperative management of these patients and importantly the diagnosis and treatment of the critically ill patient. The relevance of this to undergraduate medical students is obvious. Core Topics in Perioperative Medicine provides concise, informative chapters on many aspects of perioperative medicine, allowing medical students to bridge the gap between final year clinical attachments in this specialty, and first year house officer jobs. It aims to guide the reader through the perioperative period via short, up-to-date chapters, each giving a comprehensive account of the subject and its relevance to perioperative medicine.
Now in its fifth edition, Medical Management of the Surgical Patient: A Textbook of Perioperative Medicine has been fully revised and updated and continues to provide an authoritative account of all aspects of perioperative care for surgical patients. Including recommended plans which aid accurate treatment of patients, it provides an evidence-based approach for consulting physicians to care for patients with underlying medical conditions that will affect their surgical management. The latest minimally invasive surgical techniques are included, with new chapters on thoracic aortic disease, reconstruction after cancer ablation, lung transplantation, esophagomyotomy, vasectomy and thyroid malignancies, amongst others. With detailed descriptions of nearly one-hundred operations, highlighting their usual course as well as their common complications, the book encourages learning from experience. This definitive account includes numerous contributions from leading experts at national centers of excellence. It will continue to serve as a significant reference work for internists, hospitalists, anesthesiologists and surgeons.
This book provides a comprehensive overview of current practices in pediatric perioperative care. Current knowledge on vascular and nonvascular access, regional anesthesia, and noninvasive cardiovascular and respiratory monitoring is described. The prevention and treatment of postoperative pain and unsettled behavior after surgery, as well as the long-term consequences of anesthesia and surgery are discussed. Prevention of chronic postsurgical pain and the brain damage that may be associated with anesthesia and surgery are also considered. The opening section is dedicated to patient care prior to surgery and includes preoperative assessment and preparation. Care in the intraoperative period is then described, including the appropriate care when performing surgery in different locations and in various specialties, such as orthopedic surgery, neurosurgery, thoracic surgery, and abdominal and urological surgery. The subsequent section addresses perioperative care in children with special conditions, such as difficult airway, metabolic or neuromuscular diseases, or cancer. The remainder of the book is devoted to a range of further important topics and postoperative care.&nbs p;
