About this book

Introduction

As Sir William Osler said “The practice of medicine is an art, based on science”. The authors believe that the art of precision medicine is knowing when the science of medicine should not be applied to your patient. This practical guide to managing patient expectations while maintaining a good medical practice presents as one of the only books of its kind. Written for anesthesiology residents in training, as well as practicing physicians, Practical Anesthetic Management focuses on giving clinicians the tools to create safer, more effective and efficient practices while catering to patient satisfaction. Featuring pearls for teaching purposes, Practical Anesthetic Management also covers topics like preoperative evaluation, tips on blood-gas analysis, and essentials of airway management, all complete with accompanying videos.

Reviews

“Burnout, Fatigue, Exhaustion addresses how mankind has discovered and dealt with burnout throughout the ages. It is a detailed and dense book, and for this reason, cover to- cover reading may be best suited to those with a special interest in the topic. … Exhaustion is a significant and underrecognized health problem, one which anesthesiologists are at increased risk of experiencing, and this book provides comprehensive information on all aspects of its form and formation.” (Martina Melvin, Anesthesia & Analgesia, Vol.127 (1), July, 2018)

“Practical Anesthetic Management is a delightful and quick read for those who have been in clinical practice for some time and are in the position to place the authors’ views into the overall context of practice in our specialty. It would also be a great read for any budding anesthesia practitioner because it offers very specific and practical advice … . If you are looking for an enjoyable book to accompany you … give this book a careful read.” (Jonathan P. Wanderer, Anesthesia & Analgesia, Vol.127 (1), July, 2018)

“This is an excellent guide to the most common issues anesthesiologists face on a daily basis, with practical tips on how to administer anesthesia or handle difficult situations rather than just dishing out some vague guidance. … The book targets resident physicians, but I have no doubt that any anesthesiologist would find it useful … . Overall, this is a brilliant book. … I cannot think of any other book that serves the same purpose.” (Tariq M. Malik, Doody's Book Reviews, January, 2017)

“The new compilation of their knowledge, Practical Anesthetic Management—The Art of Anesthesiology , is a must-have for the library of every anesthesia teaching program in the world, and is highly recommended for every resident, fellow, and practitioner of the art of anesthesia as well.” (Richard Novak, The Anesthesia Consultant, theanesthesiaconsultant.com, November, 2016)
