Overview

The first exclusive guide to the management of the difficult and failed airway — presented by a team of international experts

A Doody's Core Title for 2011!

4 STAR DOODY'S REVIEW!

"The purpose is to present a consistent approach to the difficult and failed airway in all clinical settings. The potentially catastrophic consequences of failed airway management make this a vitally important goal, and the authors have produced a book that teaches how to avoid or minimize these risks....This well written book provides a well integrated approach to the management of difficult airways. It remains readable while being comprehensive. It certainly should be required reading for any clinician involved in airway management."—Doody's Review Service

Edited by two of the field's luminaries, Management of the Difficult and Failed Airway brings together international experts who offer essential, never-before-published insights into the identification and management of difficult and failed airways.

No other text has ever presented the fundamental principles of airway assessment and management, along with a consistent, case-based approach to the difficult and failed airway in all clinical settings: in the field, the emergency department, on the wards and ICU's, and in perioperative settings. Multidisciplinary in scope, Management of the Difficult and Failed Airway encompasses the key areas of anesthesia, hospitalists, intensivists, emergency medicine, and paramedicine.

Features:

  • Skill-building insights that cover all devices and skills required to handle most difficult and failed airways
  • Mnemonics and easy-to-follow algorithms in nearly every chapter
  • Engaging chapter-ending questions and answers
  • Logical four-section organization: devices, techniques, difficult populations, and “practical considerations”
  • Illustrated with color photographs throughout
  • Conversational writing style, with headings phrased as questions commonly raised by physicians and practitioners-in-training
  • The ideal accompaniment to “The Difficult Airway Course,” conducted by the editors
  • Companion DVD with videos of airway techniques and devices

Editorial Reviews

From The Critics
Reviewer: David B. Glick, MD, MBA (University of Chicago Pritzker School of Medicine)
Description: This book provides comprehensive coverage of all aspects of the management of difficult airways. In addition to the traditional presentation of information in its first 12 chapters, the book includes 43 case studies that provide real-world applications for the fundamental principles of airway management presented in the earlier chapters.
Purpose: The purpose is to present a consistent approach to the difficult and failed airway in all clinical settings. The potentially catastrophic consequences of failed airway management make this a vitally important goal, and the authors have produced a book that teaches how to avoid or minimize these risks.
Audience: The target audience includes any clinician involved in airway management. The authors' vast clinical experience ensures that all readers, from medical students doing their junior clerkship rotations to the most senior anesthesia consultants, will find new and interesting ideas and clinical solutions.
Features: The first of the book's three sections addresses the basics of airway management in the setting of the difficult airway. The second section provides a discussion of the commonly used devices and techniques in the management of difficult airways. The third section applies the lessons of the first two sections in a wide range of real-world difficult airway scenarios.
Assessment: This well written book provides a well integrated approach to the management of difficult airways. It remains readable while being comprehensive. It certainly should be required reading for any clinician involved in airway management.
