Editorial Reviews

Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: Madelyn D Kahana, MD (University of Chicago Pritzker School of Medicine)
Description: This is the third edition of a book that provides a broad review of the field of perioperative medicine for pediatric patients that is firmly based upon clear physiologic constructs.
Purpose: It is intended to provide a solid framework for learning for students of pediatric perioperative medicine regardless of their level of experience. It does so with a much more broad, physiologically based view of the field than previous editions or other available texts. This book will clearly aid not only the beginner, but the seasoned practitioner as well, to provide the best possible perioperative care of children.
Audience: The book is written by world class authorities on pediatric anesthesia and perioperative medicine for all students, regardless of level of training. Whether an anesthesia resident, a recovery room nurse, or a veteran pediatric anesthetist, any and all students of this field will benefit from reading this textbook. It provides a well constructed review for the seasoned practitioner and a comprehensive introduction for the novice. In short, this is a textbook for anyone who cares for ill and injured children in the perioperative setting.
Features: This comprehensive review of pediatric perioperative medicine stands apart from other texts in the field for many reasons. From the attention paid to applied physiologic principles and basic pharmacology, to the chapters on ethics and the behavioral stress response, this expanded version of an already well accepted authoritative text is simply superb. There are several chapters that deserve special mention. First, there is a clear discussion of the very complex topic of congenital heart disease provided by Drs. Strafford and Hickey. The authors simplify difficult physiology and punctuate the text appropriately with detailed illustrations and, in the end, achieve a clarity I have not previously seen on the subject. The chapters on ethics and behavioral stress, though imperative for the clinician, are not included in other texts. Dr. Cain has defined the field of perioperative behavioral stress for all of us and his chapter summarizes his own work in the field very well. Similarly, Dr. Truog distills the vast topic of ethics to a pertinent and well referenced discussion of the specific ethical issues that face pediatric anesthesia practitioners every day. If I could add one topic to this textbook, it would be a focused discussion on the preparation of blood products for neonates and children. Although the issues of transmitted infectious disease and transfusion associated graft versus host disease are mentioned, there is no comprehensive summary of this often confusing subject.
Assessment: This third edition presents a broad view of the field of perioperative pediatric medicine when compared with the previous editions that were a reflection of the practice of a single center. The additional topics and the clear discussion of pediatric physiology throughout set this book apart from all others in the field. It should be read and re-read by all of us who practice pediatric perioperative medicine.
Wendy Binstock
This book is unique among many pediatric anesthesia books. Seven years have elapsed since the publication of the first edition, and now we have an updated version of pediatric anesthesia in a concise format. The book has increased in size by 201 pages, largely by the addition of chapters on ophthalmology, otorhinolaryngology, pain management, cardiopulmonary resuscitation, and organ transplantation. The book describes anesthesia concepts and procedures practiced by the pediatric anesthesia team at Massachusetts General Hospital. Although the book has some major strengths and is likely to be an outstanding book for gaining a rapid, fairly detailed overview of pediatric anesthesia, its one potential drawback is an implication that ""if you don't agree with us, you're doing it wrong."" This book is best suited for the anesthesia resident on his or her first pediatric anesthesia rotation. It also provides the general anesthesia provider with an easy reference for routine pediatric cases. This multiauthored book is divided into 29 chapters. The first 12 chapters discuss general principles applying to all pediatric cases. Chapters 13, 14, and 15 describe resuscitation, neonatal, and pediatric emergencies. Pediatric cardiovascular physiology and pharmacology are reviewed in chapter 16. Chapters 17 through 22 cover anesthesia for the various surgical subspecialties, and the remaining seven chapters deal with individual topics that are relevant to being able to provide total care to the pediatric patient. This text is supported by 311 illustrations and a number of easy reference tables, some placed very conveniently inside the front and back covers. Overall, this book continues to maintain itshigh standard and provides a concise coverage of the field of pediatric anesthesia. It remains a good reference as an introduction to pediatric anesthesia and for the practitioner without a large volume of pediatric cases. Because this book has been greatly expanded with information regarding the everyday practice of pediatric anesthesia, I would recommend it for purchase by health sciences librarians.
