    Fluid therapy is one of the most basic interventions spanning across all medical and surgical disciplines. Physicians need to understand the physiology of fluids and electrolytes before they can evaluate the extent to which disease pathophysiology has altered the balance, enabling them to determine the type and quantity of intravenous fluids required for treatment. This new edition is a practical guide to intravenous fluids and their administration to surgical patients. Divided into sixteen sections, the text begins with an overview of normal water balance and distribution of body fluid. The next sections cover the pharmacology of different types of intravenous fluid, followed by discussion on fluid therapy in different medical circumstances, and concluding with a chapter on fluid calculation. The second edition has been fully revised to provide the latest information in the field, and features new topics including fluid choice in the perioperative period and surgery and stress response. Key points Fully revised, new edition presenting latest information on intravenous fluids in surgery Discusses different types of fluid and their application in different circumstances Second edition includes several new topics Previous edition (9789350903957) published in 2013

    This book focuses on controversial issues in neuroanesthesia and neurocritical care that in general have been subjected to insufficient professional scrutiny. The book is in three parts, the first of which is devoted to topics relating to traumatic brain and spinal cord injury, such as brain tissue oxygenation, the role of biomarkers, and diagnosis of brain death. Aspects of airway and pain management are then addressed, covering, for example, airway management in an emergency setting, airway evaluation in the edentulous patient, and pain management in neurosurgery and after craniotomy. The final part of the book considers a wide range of other challenging subjects in the field of neuroanesthesia and neurocritical care. Throughout, much information is provided on the latest, state of the art management. The authors are acknowledged experts in the issues they discuss, and the book will be of interest for graduate and undergraduate students, residents, neuroanesthetists, neurointensivists, emergency medicine residents and specialists, fellows in neurocritical care and all those directly involved in the perioperative care of patients with head and neck pathology.

    Neural therapy is widely used throughout Europe and is rapidly gaining worldwide acceptance in the therapeutic armamentarium. It is known to provide instant relief of pain, improved motion, and return of function and can be used for a variety of health problems unresolved by other methods. This book covers the methodology, indications, and techniques for injecting local anesthetics to specific nerve and tissue sites to restore proper biological function. With this striking visual guide at hand, even physicians without prior experience in neural therapy should be able to implement the techniques successfully in their everyday practice.

    Key Features:

    • Unique "hybrid" illustrations composed of body photographs and drawings of underlying anatomy on the skin clarify the anatomic landmarks for pinpointing the best sites for injections
    • Useful as a primary teaching tool, but also to add value to the general practitioner's or surgeon's existing practice
    • Concise explanatory texts on facing pages support the images

    Barop's Textbook and Atlas of Neural Therapy will be valued by all students and practitioners involved in the treatment of patients with chronic pain syndromes.

    About this book

    This book is a knowledge-based text that covers the anatomy, neurophysiology, and neuropharmacology needed to carry out the necessary management and cerebrospinal protection during neuroanesthesia. Especially to make the subject of neuroanesthesia more approachable, we introduce surgical measures utilized in neurosurgery, cardiovascular surgery, neuromodulation, and related procedures.

    The main purpose of neuroanesthesia/neurocritical care is to deliver cerebrospinal protection in neurosurgical and cardiovascular surgeries. How should we select the best anesthetic management to prevent neurological complications for patients who, for instance, undergo different types of surgery for subarachnoid hemorrhage, stroke, head trauma, carotid endarterectomy, or cardiovascular surgery under cardiopulmonary bypass? These pathological conditions include the risk of transient cerebrospinal ischemia, and if our management is not precise, it may induce serious neurological sequelae. Although there is an urgent need to establish the treatment and elucidate the molecular mechanisms of cerebrospinal injury, many components are intertwined, making this a challenge we have not completely solved yet.

    This volume makes the management of neuroanesthesia more accessible not only for primary residents but also for specialists, providing a valuable resource on the current perspectives of neuroanesthesia.


    “This overview of neuroanesthesia covers both basic science and clinical aspects. … The intended audience is in-training and postgraduate neuroanesthesiologists, and the book is written to suit everyone’s needs. … This book is very well written. … It’s easy on the eye and captivating, making reading it very pleasurable.” (Tariq M. Malik, Doody’s Book Reviews, November, 2015)

    This text is designed for those who may become consultants in pediatric anesthesia. It is based on a curriculum developed since 1992 to illustrate the breadth and depth of the practice of pediatric anesthesia and the program is an integral part of the didactic series in the Department of Anesthesiology, Perioperative and Pain Medicine at Boston Children's Hospital. This second edition has the same purpose as the first – to accompany the reader’s journey in attaining proficiency, expertise and finally, mastery in pediatric anesthesiology. The format of the book is designed to encourage the readers’ free flow of ideas and the written examinations, seen at the beginning of the text as a baseline in pediatric medicine, are primarily knowledge-based, reflecting factual medical information necessary for the subspecialty practice of pediatric anesthesiology. With this basic guidance, the reader can bring him or herself "into the operating room" and manage the patient in an expert fashion.

    To an unusual degree, the shared “working space” of otolaryngologists and anesthesiologists means that issues important to one are important to the other. Anesthesiology and Otolaryngology is the first book to address the closely overlapping information needs of both groups of specialists. It is collaboratively written and edited by anesthesiologists and otolaryngologists, and the chapters are carefully designed to insure maximal relevance to members of both specialties. The heart of the book consists of chapters on managing patients during the full range of otolaryngologic procedures. These chapters are structured chronologically, and otolaryngologic and anesthesiologic perspectives are systematically presented for each operative stage. Foundational topics such as gross and radiographic anatomy, physiology, and pharmacology are covered. The book includes a unique chapter on oxygen delivery systems that serves as a comprehensive review for anesthesiologists and an overview for the otolaryngologist. Special topics addressed include acute and chronic pain management, and the logistics of managing an office-based surgical practice. · “All-in-one” reference for otolaryngologists and otolaryngologic anesthesiologists · Surgical and anesthesiologic perspectives marshaled for pre-operative, intraoperative, and postoperative periods · Pearls and Insights at end of chapters · Organized by surgical region · Special challenges of difficult airway and of pediatric otolaryngologic procedures addressed
