About this book

Introduction

Those familiar with the 1st edition of this book from 2008 will recognize the original 62 cases that have been modernized with updated references and enjoy the addition of 41 brand new cases. Clinical Anesthesia: Near Misses and Lessons Learned, 2nd edition is a collection of actual cases, complied from the author’s forty years of practice in major metropolitan hospitals in the United States, Norway and South Africa. It offers the reader succinct case presentations describing a problem on one page and a solution on the next, with a discussion, other potential solutions with satisfactory outcomes, and tips to help avoid problems altogether when possible. Clinical Anesthesia: Near Misses and Lessons Learned, 2nd edition serves as an easy and practical way for the reader to gain familiarity with potentially unexpected problems in clinical anesthesia

In addition, this can be an excellent study aid for the American Board of Anesthesiology oral exam. Since near misses are relatively rare, there really is no way to be prepared to successfully manage such crises other than reading about them, so residents, fellows, and practicing, certified registered nurse anesthetists will benefit from the learning of these actual near misses. Additionally, faculty will find the plethora of discussion topics for large or small group settings an ideal way to communicate anesthesia and clinical care problems to the audience.
