Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: Zdravka Zafirova, MD (University of Chicago Pritzker School of Medicine)
Description: This update of a companion handbook to Stoelting's Anesthesia and Co-Existing Disease, 5th edition (Elsevier, 2008), provides a concise overview of the pathology of medical disorders relevant to anesthesia practice.
Purpose: It is intended as a reference on the impact of disease pathophysiology on perioperative patient management. The pathophysiological alterations resulting from various disease states have significant implications for anesthesia practice and this book provides easily accessible information on the subject.
Audience: Anesthesia trainees in all stages of their training will find this book most valuable. Even experienced clinicians encounter situations in which they would appreciate the benefits of this practical reference.
Features: The handbook uses an outline format for the organization of the chapters, which allows prompt location of relevant information. The topics mirror the more comprehensive chapters of the main book and cover a wide range of diseases with a degree of detail that reflects the significance of each entity in anesthesia management. Cardiac disorders appropriately are prominently represented due to their significant impact on anesthesia practice. Distinct patient populations such as obstetric, pediatric, geriatric, and patients with nutritional disorders present unique challenges and receive particular attention. Abundant tables and diagrams supplement the text and help readers better understand complex concepts and make the handbook easy to use.
Assessment: This valuable reference delivers essential knowledge about disease pathophysiology relevant to the safe and effective delivery of anesthesia while providing a commendable balance between an easily accessible format and an appropriate depth of information.
