Anaesthesia for Patients with Endocrine Disease

Apart from diabetes mellitus, endocrine diseases requiring surgical treatment are relatively uncommon. However, when they do occur, they frequently present major clinical anaesthestic problems that require extensive knowledge of the pathophysiology of the condition, and considerable anaesthetic expertise. This book provides the anaesthetist with a comprehensive examination of each of the endocrine conditions, covering underlying pathophysiological problems, and guidance on optimal anaesthetic care. It will be of use to trainee and consultant anaesthetists working in both specialist endocrine wards and general surgery wards where a patient with endocrine disease might present.
