Editorial Reviews

Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: Martin H Dauber, MD (University of Chicago Pritzker School of Medicine)
Description: Part of the Oxford Specialist Handbooks in Anaesthesia series, this pocket-sized book covers many areas of ophthalmic anatomy and physiology and their anesthetic implications.
Purpose: It is intended to provide basic, yet detailed, knowledge of anatomy, physiology, pharmacology, and pathology relevant to the anesthetic care of eye patients under many circumstances. Experience with eye procedures is an important aspect of the practice of anesthesia in general. This book succinctly provides, in an easy to read and carry format, that knowledge.
Audience: This book is written not only for anesthesia providers, but also for ophthalmologists and anesthesia nurses involved in the care of eye patients. An international group of chapter authors, including some with outstanding credentials, has been assembled to provide a broad perspective of the subject.
Features: Initial chapters cover basic ocular anatomy and physiology. These excellent chapters have extensive and clear illustrations that contribute a great deal to the high quality of this introduction. Basic anesthesia principles of pharmacology and local/regional blocks are then detailed, with attention to situational application. Specific ophthalmic subjects, including pediatric, trauma, oculoplastic, vitreoretinal, strabismus, and glaucoma surgery, are presented. The book concludes with a discussion of complications and a look into the future of the field.
Assessment: "Though anesthesiologists are less involved with ophthalmologists as their services are unnecessary for routine phacoemulsification, knowledge in the field of ophthalmic anesthesia is important for practitioners. This book fulfills this need. This convenient handbook can easily be covered, carried, and mastered during trainees' short rotations on the ophthalmic anesthesia service, and it can serve as a quick reference for others caring for eye patients.
