Core Topics in Vascular Anaesthesia
Vascular surgery and anaesthesia have changed considerably in recent years and become recognised subspecialties, although non-specialist anaesthetists continue to provide much of the care for emergency vascular surgical patients. Core Topics in Vascular Anaesthesia brings together the clinical expertise of global leaders in the field in a comprehensive review of contemporary practice. Detailed discussion is included on every aspect of clinical management: * Preoperative risk assessment, including cardiopulmonary exercise testing and risk modification using pharmacological and cardiac interventions * Anaesthesia for major vascular operations including carotid endarterectomy, complex endovascular aortic surgery and repair of ruptured aortic aneurysms * Intraoperative management of high risk patients including advanced monitoring techniques, fluid management, blood conservation and transfusion, major haemorrhage and treatment of coagulopathy Practical and well illustrated, Core Topics in Vascular Anaesthesia is essential reading for anaesthetists, intensive care physicians and vascular surgeons.

'Chapters are logical and progressive, starting with general principles of perioperative assessment, optimisation and management before focusing on anaesthesia for specific operative procedures. [They] are thorough, well-written and concise ... Overall this book is very well worth reading for a comprehensive yet succinct guide to anaesthesia for vascular surgery. Current opinion and evidence regarding vascular anaesthesia is distilled into an easy-to-read format that would appeal to interested anaesthetists, intensivists and surgeons.' Dr Jonathan Price, Anaesthesia News
