Textbook of Regional Anesthesia and Acute Pain Management

The single most comprehensive hands-on guide to the practice of Regional Anesthesia and Pain Management - in full color!

Here at last is a reference that covers the practice of Regional Anesthesia in its entirety, providing practitioners and students with both the physiologic principles and specific, state-of-the-art patient-management protocols and techniques.

Recognized leaders in the specialty have filled this richly illustrated volume with authoritative, completely practical help. You'll find algorithms for managing or avoiding a wide range of common clinical dilemmas or complications. You get time-saving tools such as intravenous-to-oral opioid conversion tables and PCA setup guides as well as no-nonsense selection of nerve block techniques and advice on their strengths and pitfalls. This handy reference helps you make wise choices about anesthetics, dosing intervals, equipment, and perioperative management of patients receiving single-injection or continuous nerve blocks or spinal or epidural anesthesia. It tells you how to successfully manage patients with suspected epidural hematoma or neurologic injuries - and much more.
