Preanesthetic assessment 3


, : Preanesthetic assessment 3. Frost, E A M (Ed ) Preanesthetic Assessment, 3 Xiv+377p Birkhaeuser Boston: Boston, Massachusetts, Usa; Basel, Switzerland Illus Xiv+377p

Adequate assessment by the anethesiologist of a surgical patient's individual problems or requirements can often be critical to the proper course of response to situations arising during anesthesia. This volume contains reviews of 24 such assessment problems. These articles have been revised and up-dated since their original publication in monthly issues of Anesthesiology News (1989-1991). Each in-depth review is suitable for students or practitioners in this field. Topics include the patient with chronic spinal chord injury, the patient with Down's syndrome, the patient with muscular dystrophy, the cocaine abuser, the asthmatic patient, and the patient with multiple sclerosis. The text closes with self-assessment questions from each chapter and an index.
