Book Summary:

This book is intended to bring together data and clinical guidelines for those involved in the practice of anaesthesia, whether they be specialists or not. It is designed to be a true handbook that will accompany its owner into the operating theatre, where it will serve as a practical reference guide, not as a textbook. We welcome comment, criticism, and suggestions for improvement of the contents; correspondence may be addressed to the authors at P. O. Box 63, Tygerberg 7505, Republic of South Africa.

Book Summary:

This book provides anaesthetists, intensivists and other critical care staff with a comprehensive resource that offers ways of improving communication in everyday clinical practice, and provides practical communication tools that can be used in difficult or unfamiliar circumstances. It demonstrates how communication can be structured to improve patient care and safety with numerous practical examples and vignettes illustrating how the concepts discussed can beintegrated into clinical practice, and presents ideas in a way that enhances clinical interactions with patients and colleagues and facilitate the teaching of trainees. Section 1 contains theoretical and research-based material on which the communication models and concepts used inthe book are based. Section 2 details examples of how communication skills can be integrated into clinical practice. Section 3 addresses special situations including: obstetrics; paediatrics; needle phobia; how to break bad news; and the Intensive Care Unit. Section 4 provides examples of other interpersonal and professional communication skills relevant to the acute care clinician such as, 'Talking to surgeons' and 'Team communication'. Finally, Section 5 builds on many of the concepts usedearlier in the book and briefly presents how the innovative use of advanced 'hypnotic' communication skills can supplement and enhance anaesthesia and critical care. Edited by practising anaesthetists with particular expertise in teaching communication, and with contributions fromexpert clinicians based in North America, Europe and Australasia, this book will stimulate and complement the development of comprehensive resources for communication skills teaching in anaesthesia and other related professional groups.

Book Summary:

This popular handbook provides a practical guide to managing common and important problems in the critically ill patient, as well as sufficient background information to enable understanding of the principles and rationale behind the therapy without overloading the reader with detailed basic science. Fully updated throughout, this third edition of Handbook of ICU Therapy includes new chapters on coagulation problems in the critically ill, airway management, electrolyte and metabolic acid/base problems, optimizing antimicrobial therapy, chronic critical illness, recognizing and responding to the deteriorating patient, ICU rehabilitation, palliative care, neurotrauma, the comatose patient, the obstetric patient, endocrine problems, and care of organ donors. Authored by senior clinicians from both sides of the Atlantic, chapters retain the easy-to-read format of previous editions. Aimed particularly at residents and trainees starting out in the ICU or preparing for postgraduate examinations, this handbook also serves as a valuable refresher for established intensivists, anesthesiologists and surgeons.

Book Summary:

This book is essential reading for medical or veterinary practitioners who need to understand the new fluid physiology and to apply it to the safe care of patients. The Starling principle is one of medicine's most important concepts and originates from Ernest Starling's laboratory research 120 years ago. However, inappropriate fluid therapy is now recognised as harming and even killing thousands of patients every year. In 2004, a landmark study was published which confirmed the hypotheses put forward by Sheldon Weinbaum and Charles Michel, among other physiologists, that, in most tissues and in most situations, capillaries filter fluid to the interstitium, but do not reabsorb it. This book draws together for the first time the evolving science of the steady-state Starling principle and the clinical evidence that reveals its applicability to safer patient care. It is a thorough re-appraisal of the basics of fluid therapy. The mantra of colloid boluses for plasma volume resuscitation and colloid-free isotonic salt solution for extracellular fluid volume does not explain observations from blinded clinical trials, and the expectation of benefit for resuscitation with colloids, particularly in respect of oedema, has not materialised. Now that there is consensus that colloid volume therapy should not be used in critically-ill patients, there is a pressing need for a new paradigm for fluid therapy. This book proposes an improved paradigm that takes into consideration the Starling principle, which has been neglected by clinicians and revised by physiologists in recent years. It retires the view of colloids as preferred plasma substitutes, and focuses instead on the central volume of distribution of an infused fluid, its rate of distribution to a peripheral volume, and its rate of excretion. In short, it emphasises volume kinetics.

Book Summary:

The bestselling Oxford Handbook of Anaesthesia has been completely updated for this new third edition. All chapters have been rewritten and a number of new authors have been brought on board to add their expertise and knowledge. Additional new material includes regional anaesthesia, and a comprehensive section on anaesthesia for interventional radiology, a rapidly expanding field of medical practice with particular implications for anaesthesia. Key sections cover preoperative issues affecting the administration of anaesthesia and techniques employed in the individual surgical specialties. The book provides practical advice covering the impact of medical disease on anaesthesia, and separate comprehensive sections on paediatric and obstetric anaesthesia are also included. The management of emergencies arising during anaesthesia is fully covered with helpful action plans and algorithms throughout. Uncommon conditions and their management are included, and there is an extensive drug formulary and guide to infusion drugs. As with the previous editions, this new edition will be the essential handbook for anaesthetists, both junior and experienced, for trainees sitting exams, as well as ODPs and nurses involved in theatre area work and pre-assessment. It is the one book for anyone working in anaesthesia to keep to hand at all times!
