Editorial Reviews

Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: Long K. Han, MD (University of Chicago Pritzker School of Medicine)
Description: This is a manual of technical "how-to's" and practical clinical pearls for the perioperative (and intraoperative) care of the cardiac surgical patient.
Purpose: The author intends this to be a practical manual that presents a demythologized approach to cardiac anesthesia.
Audience: The intended audience is anesthesiologists who seldom practice cardiac anesthesia and who require a simple and succinct primer for review.
Features: Important features of this handbook include tables that summarize or compare the solvent features of certain technologies (such as pacemakers) or drugs. The author also has several black-and-white pictures illustrating common technical procedures that are crucial to a successful anesthetic.
Assessment: This handbook generally succeeds in presenting practical insights and advice that prove helpful in the conduct of cardiac anesthesia. As such, I recommend it to any practitioner in the field of anesthesiology as a quick introduction to the adult cardiac anesthesia practice.
