The most widely used clinical reference in cardiac anesthesia, this large handbook provides complete information on drugs, monitoring, cardiopulmonary bypass, circulatory support, and anesthetic management of specific cardiac disorders. It incorporates clinically relevant basic science into a practical "what-to-do" approach and is written in an easy-to-read outline format. This edition has a new chapter on surgical ventricular restoration, LV aneurysm, and CHF-related surgical procedures. Chapters provide increased coverage of postoperative atrial fibrillation prevention and treatment, drugs in perioperative risk reduction, and the role of inhalational anesthetics in organ protection via anesthetic preconditioning. This edition also has a revamped art program.
