Written and edited by recognized authorities in anesthesiology and surgical critical care, this fully updated edition helps you think critically about complex, long-term issues surrounding the care of the surgical patient, providing decision trees that define strategies to enhance the medical outcome of care.

Key Features
  • Focuses on what anesthesiologists, surgeons, and intensivists need to know in order to improve outcomes through evidence- and outcome-based approaches.
  • Provides practical guidance on potential risks to all major organ systems, the etiology of particular organ dysfunctions, preoperative and intraoperative risk factors, and perioperative protection strategies to minimize potential complications.

Published Reviews

"As a preoperative/intraoperative/postoperative journey, the book is a nice overview for anesthesia providers and a reminder that our impact on patient outcomes is not just in the operating room, but also beyond it. It is much more in-depth on many topics than I anticipated and makes many references to studies and current research."
