Overview

Provides a comprehensive evidence-based guide to the management of the growing population of patients who require perioperative care

Perioperative Medicine: Medical Consultation and Co-Management is the first comprehensive reference text developed specifically for hospitalists but envisioned also to help internists, anesthesiologists, allied health professionals, fellows, residents, and medical students manage various aspects of the medical care of the surgical patient. The book features both the preoperative and postoperative medical management of the surgical patient. It focuses on systems, operations, quality of perioperative care, and preoperative assessment of the patient, all in consideration with system-specific risk and evidence-based strategies that minimize risk. It places special emphasis on care of the older hospitalized surgical patient and offers a thorough discussion of post-operative conditions and their management.

Chapters cover vital topics such as:

  • Hospitalist as a Medical Consultant
  • Co-Management of the Surgical Patient
  • Preoperative Evaluation
  • Improving the Quality and Outcomes of Perioperative Care
  • Developing, Implementing, and Operating a Preoperative Clinic
  • Assessing and Managing Risk of Major Organ Systems
  • Assessing and Managing Disorders for Surgery
  • Postoperative Care and Co-Management by Surgery Type
  • Managing Common Postoperative Conditions

With the core responsibilities of perioperative care falling more and more on the shoulders of hospitalists, internists, and allied health professionals, Perioperative Medicine is a much-needed guide for managing the clinical and operational issues associated with caring for hospitalized surgical patients.

Reviewer: Heather Huang, MD (University of Wisconsin School of Medicine and Public Health)
Description: The first of its kind, this is a comprehensive reference developed for hospitalists to aid in the various aspects of the medical care of surgical patients.
Purpose: The book focuses on systems, operations, and the quality of care as it pertains to perioperative care, assessment of preoperative risk, evidence-based strategies that minimize risk, and management of common postoperative conditions. This book successfully accomplishes its goals.
Audience: It is intended primarily for hospitalists, but it also is written for anesthesiologists, internists, allied health professionals, fellows, residents, and medical students.
Features: The book concisely summarizes evidence-based literature and current guidelines, and presents the information in helpful tables, graphs, and algorithms. The first of the book's four major sections covers systems of care, quality, and practice management, discussing the role of consultants, billing, coding, and reimbursement, as well as the development, implementation, and operation of a preoperative clinic and medical consultation service. Part 2 covers assessment and management of risk by organ systems (e.g. managing CV risk, pulmonary risk, hematologic disorders, psychiatric disorders, etc.). Part 3 focuses on postoperative care in various types of surgery (e.g. cardiac, intra-abdominal, orthopedic, trauma, etc.). The final section discusses common postoperative conditions.
Assessment: This unique book is a must-have for any hospitalist, surgeon, resident, or fellow who is involved in the medical care of surgical patients.
