About this book


Theodore H. Stanley, M. D. What's New in, Anesthesiology in 1988 contains the Refresher Course manuscripts of the presentations of the 33rd Annual Postgraduate Course in Anesthesiology which took place at the Marriott Hotel Convention Center in Salt Lake City, Utah, February 19-23, 1988. The chapters reflect new data, ideas and concepts within the general framework of most recent developments in "evaluation and monitoring cardiac function before, during and after surgery," "new anesthetics and their actions on the heart and peripheral vasculature, and other organ systems," "metabolism and elimination of anesthetics and anesthetic adjuvants," and "recent developments in the anesthetic management of patients with congenital heart disease, renal and pulmonary dysfunction, and diabetes insipidus. " In addition, there are chapters on new developments in "obstetrics," "regional anesthesia," and "anesthetic management of the newborn. " The purposes of the textbook are to 1) act as a reference for the anesthesio­ logists attending the meeting, and,2) serve as a vehicle to bring many of the latest concepts in anesthesiology to others within a short time of the formal presentation. Each chapter is a brief but sharply focused glimpse of the interests in anesthesia expressed at the conference. This book and its chapters should not be considered complete treatises on the subjects addressed but rather attempts to summarize the most salient points. This textbook is the sixth in a continuing series documenting the proceedings of the Postgraduate Course in Salt Lake City.
