Editorial Reviews

Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: Zdravka Zafirova, MD (University of Chicago Pritzker School of Medicine)
Description: This is the sixth edition of a concise pocketbook reference on the practice of anesthesia for children. The previous edition was published in 2001.
Purpose: It presents anesthesia providers with an easily accessible, up-to-date fund of knowledge on the theoretical principles and their practical applications in the anesthetic management of pediatric patients. It outlines perioperative issues and provides recommendations on specific management solutions based on the current research.
Audience: This is a helpful guide for trainees in anesthesia at all levels, medical students, residents, fellows, and nurse anesthetists, that will help them in developing proficiency in the care of children. The authors are renowned experts in the field.
Features: The foundations of pediatric anesthesia begin the book, with an emphasis on the psychological, physiological, and pharmacological principles underlying the care of children under anesthesia. Outlines of anesthetic techniques and procedures, with specific focus on their use in pediatric patients, follow. The first part of the book concludes with discussion of the implications of various medical conditions on perioperative management and includes useful guidance on key issues such as upper respiratory infections and malignant hyperthermia. The second part of the book presents considerations for specific surgical procedures and anesthetic situations. The chapters are organized into major topics, which are further broken down into more specific subjects. The appendixes that complete the book present helpful references on the anesthetic implications of syndromes and unusual disorders, pediatric resuscitation, and drug doses in children. The book's pocket size, concise format, and organization with numbered paragraphs contribute to its utility as an easily-accessible resource. Well-placed tables highlight important information and management points. The illustrations help enhance the didactic utility of the guide, although the format poses predictable limitations on their quantity and quality. A limited number of references direct readers to sources of more in-depth information.
Assessment: This is a valuable practical guide for trainees in pediatric anesthesia that summarizes important up-to-date information and provides direction about specific management situations.
