Neuroanaesthesiology is a subspecialty area of anaesthesiology that deals with the complex relationships of anaesthetic medications, neurosurgical procedures, and the critical care issues that surround the management of these patients.
This book is a comprehensive guide to neuroanaesthesiology for trainees in anaesthesia, neurosurgery and neurology.
Divided into four sections, the text begins with in depth discussion on applied anatomy and physiology. Section two covers neuropathology, and section three examines case management detailing a multitude of different surgical procedures. The final section presents a selection of appendices.
Reflecting the New York-based author’s extensive experience in the field, the book is designed to be a practical manual, teaching aid, and source of case discussions. The text is bulleted and concise, explaining key concepts with the help of line diagrams, numerical data, and tables.
The layout of the content provides space for personal annotations to assist learning and interesting vignettes about neurosciences further enhance reading.
