Editorial Reviews

Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: Bernard Wittels, MD, PhD (University of Chicago Pritzker School of Medicine)
Description: Six years after the publication of the first edition of this book, the editors refine and update the content, references, and style of their text.
Purpose: The goals include updating and fine-tuning the previous edition of the handbook, with expanded coverage of congenital heart disease, the difficult airway, outpatient surgery, and emergency resuscitation protocols, while maintaining completeness, brevity, and rapid cross-referencing capability. Such an approach certainly matches the current trends in health care that emphasize outpatient surgery and improved survival of children with congenital heart disease. This handbook originates from the Pediatric Section of the Department of Anesthesiology at Yale University School of Medicine
Audience: This is an invaluable addition to the medical library of any pediatric healthcare provider, especially for students, residents, and practitioners of pediatric anesthesia.
Features: The handbook has a brief table of contents and then spans nearly 600 pages that precede an expanded 70-page section of appendixes (with a separate table of contents) and a 30-page index. References in each chapter highlight the most noteworthy publications in the last decade as well as new ideas from recent manuscripts in fields of pediatrics, surgery, and anesthesia.
Assessment: This is an excellent, encyclopedic reference that provides a succinct overview of all major pediatric anesthesia challenges, from basic physiologic perturbations to specific anesthetic management of complex pediatric diseases and related perioperative complications. The editors present a gold mine of information that sets a new standard for pediatric anesthesia texts. Efficient presentation of charts, tables, references, and indices is enriched with poetry and whimsical caricatures that lend a sense of warmth and compassion toward pediatric patient care.
