Editorial Reviews

Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: Tariq M. Malik, MD (University of Chicago Pritzker School of Medicine)
Description: Anesthesia for head and neck surgeries is generally confined to a few pages in an anesthesia textbook. The technical aspects of surgery and the finer points of anesthesia techniques are not discussed, with the assumption that they will be learned on the job. This is where this book makes its mark, covering otolaryngologic surgeries, both common and uncommon, and providing evidence-based guidance.
Purpose: This overview covers a comprehensive list of procedures, providing key pointers for conducting safe and efficient anesthesia.
Audience: The book is written for anesthesiologists at all levels of experience.
Features: The first section covers topics related to any surgery, such as airway assessment and awake intubation, management and prevention of airway fire, ENT trauma surgery, and emergencies. The next three sections cover a long list of surgeries done in the nasal passages, the head and neck and tracheal area. The fifth section is the most innovative one. It covers anesthesia for bronchoscopic procedures, which is a fast emerging field. Lastly, a full section is devoted to pediatric procedures. The book is impressive in the breadth of its coverage. All common and unusual procedures are covered. Each topic has a full chapter, and all chapters have a beautifully organized format. After a brief introduction, the chapter discusses surgical and anesthetic considerations, anesthetic management, and preoperative, intraoperative, and postoperative considerations. If applicable, special positioning and monitoring are discussed, and surgical complications to watch for are reviewed. Important points throughout the chapter are highlighted. Finally, each chapter concludes with a summary of recommendations and a case study. The book is well illustrated and well referenced. It is not a manual of techniques and does not describe how to do something, but lays out the target to be achieved.
Assessment: This a beautifully written book on otolaryngologic procedures. It covers both the theory and the practice of anesthesia for these surgeries. The information is practical and to the point. A topic can be read quickly, making it a very handy reference even in a busy practice setting. A very good book to have in an anesthesiology library.
From the Publisher
"This addition to the body of anesthesia literature is much welcomed … Contributions from both anesthesiologists and surgeons add strength to this book."
