Overview


This book describes the provision of anesthesia and analgesia for patients presenting as emergencies. Patients commonly come to the emergency room with conditions requiring local or general anesthesia. Close cooperation is essential between the anesthetist and the emergency room staff if anesthesia and analgesia are to be dealt with efficiently and safely. Consideration must always be given to the broader medical management of the patient and priorities adhered to. The authors provide a concise guide to anesthesia and pain relief in emergency medicine. The emphasis is on the practical management of problems. Clear instructions on the treatment of common conditions and anesthetic support for emergency procedures are supplemented by key points, lists, boxes, and detailed illustrations.

The book contains black-and-white illustrations.

Editorial Reviews

Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: Long K. Han, MD (University of Chicago Pritzker School of Medicine)
Description: This is the second edition of a concise reference aimed at the emergency medicine and anesthesia trainee audience. It is a part of the Oxford University series of handbooks in emergency medicine.
Purpose: The authors are specialists in emergency medicine and anesthesiology. Their goal is to provide a practical source for the management of the emergency patient who may require anesthesia and analgesia, and to provide a resource that will enhance cooperation between the anesthesiologist and the emergency medicine physician.
Audience: The targeted audience is emergency medicine department staff members and anesthesia residents/trainees. The content, as such, is clearly presented and can be used as a quick review source.
Features: A strength of this textbook is the presentation of modern resuscitative concepts based on the 1997 European Resuscitation Council Guidelines. The chapter on nerve blocks is well written, with line art that illustrates key points placed strategically throughout. The British background of the authors gives us a fascinating glimpse into the European approach to emergency medicine. This British flavor unfortunately also leads to the use of British drug names, some of which may be unfamiliar to the American audience.
Assessment: This second edition is a welcome addition to the library of practitioners of anesthesia and emergency medicine.
Gita Rupani
This handbook is one in a series of books devoted to emergency medicine. It emphasizes the salient points concerning anesthesia and analgesia in patients presenting to the emergency room. "The book consists of plenty of useful information presented in a concise, practical fashion in an easy-to-read format. "It will be very useful to medical students, nurse practitioners, and residents in training in emergency rooms. "It would, however, have been better if there was less repetition of several steps in local anesthetic nerve blocks or cricothroidotomy by a needle/knife. Also, I agree with the author that close cooperation between the anesthesia staff and emergency room departments is necessary for efficient and safe patient care. This book could have used some common scenario illustrations. "The book does emphasize the need for a trained anesthesiologist in some situations, but it should give more detailed information in steps to decrease intracranial pressure, e.g., position, hyperventilation, cautious use of muscle relaxants (in my opinion, muscle relaxants should only be used by a person who is an expert in airway management).
