Anesthesia for Cardiac Surgery

  • Henry Casson
Part of the Comprehensive Manuals of Surgical Specialties book series (CMSS)


Anesthesia for cardiac surgery is often more demanding than anesthesia for other types of surgery. Almost all patients have hemodynamic abnormalities that must be managed properly during induction and maintenance of anesthesia in order to avoid myocardial injury or injury to other organs.
