Editorial Reviews

Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: Aisling Conran, MD (University of Chicago Pritzker School of Medicine)
Description: This seventh volume in the Atlas of Anesthesia Series provides coverage of some basic principles of physiology and pharmacology pertinent for pediatric patients. Specialized areas, such as neurosurgery, congenital heart disease repair, and anesthesia outside the operating room are addressed, in addition to more general types of surgery.
Purpose: The editor seeks to provide the reader with a more complete understanding of pediatric anesthesia via discussion of the physiologic and pharmacological principles and disease states which occur in children. Current scientific principles, surgical procedures, and anesthetic considerations are reviewed, occasionally with a focused view geared to the experienced pediatric anesthesiologist.
Audience: The editor has set out to provide a review for the pediatric anesthesiologist, with the aid of nationally recognized experts in the field. Some chapters, such as perioperative management and regional anesthesia, are also appropriate for residents in training.
Features: Extremely well done color photography and illustrations illuminate the text and add to the reader's understanding of key points, as well as potential pitfalls and concerns in the anesthetic management of children. One downside may be that this text is a brief review and therefore not comprehensive, and may be unable to provide the answer to a specific question which arises from clinical care. For example, the chapter on anesthesia and sedation outside the OR has great coverage of the potential problems that may arise in these outlying areas, although it does not address MRI compatible anesthesia machines.
Assessment: This is a well-illustrated, easy to read review of pediatric anesthesia. It may be most useful as a source for future talks, given that it has very descriptive legends for the excellent photographs and graphic illustrations, which are available as slides, for an additional cost.
