About this book
Theodore H. Stanley. M. D. W. Clayton Petty. M. D. Anesthesia. the Heart and the Vascular System contains the Refresher Course manuscripts of the presentations of the 32nd Annual Postgraduate Course in Anesthesiology which took place at the Westin Hotel Utah Convention Center in Salt Lake City. Utah. February 20-24. 1987. The chapters reflect new data and concepts within the general framework of "risk. preoperative evaluation and monitoring. " "cerebral. pulmonary and peripheral vascular disease. " "new agents. their advantages and their problems" and "pediatric. cardiac and non-cardiac surgery. " The purposes of the textbook are to 1) act as a reference for the anesthesiologists attending the meeting. and 2) serve as a vehicle to bring many of the latest concepts in anesthesiology to others within a short time of the formal presentation. Each chapter is a brief but sharply focused glimpse of the interests in anesthesia expressed at the conference. This book and its chapters should not be considered complete treatises on the sub jects addressed but rather attempts to summarize the most salient points. This textbook is the fifth in a continuing series documenting the pro ceedings of the Postgraduate Course in Salt Lake City. We hope that this and the past and future volumes reflect the rapid and continuing evolution of anesthesiology in the late twentieth century.
