About this book


This two-volume book offers a comprehensive guide to anesthetic management and critical care management in neurosurgical and neurological patients. This first volume focuses on neuroanesthesia.

The book begins with basic information on neuroanesthesia, extensively discussing the anatomy of the brain and spine, physiology and relevant pharmacology. Special considerations for pregnant, pediatric and geriatric patients are covered in separate chapters. Each neurosurgical condition is discussed in a standard format relevant for neurosurgical patients, and each chapter, prepared by experts in the field, includes ample illustrations and flowcharts. Information is also provided on the latest evidence-based approaches, robotic surgery and gene therapy.

The book offers a valuable resource for all residents, fellows and trainees in the fields of neuroanesthesia and anesthesia; it will also benefit practitioners and consultants.
