Anesthesiology and the Cardiovascular Patient contains the edited presentations of the 41st Annual Postgraduate Course in Anesthesiology, February 1996. The chapters reflect new data and concepts within the general framework of the pathophysiology and management of surgical candidates with cardiovascular disease. The textbook will serve as a vehicle to bring many of the latest concepts in anesthesiology to those who did not attend the conference. Each chapter is a brief but sharply focused glimpse of the current interest in anesthesia. This volume, as well as past and future volumes, reflects the rapid and continuing evolution of anesthesiology in the late twentieth century.
