About this book
Completely revised and updated to reflect the latest developments in the field, this second edition of Brendan Finucane’s indispensable Complications of Regional Anesthesia*, is an essential text for all anesthesiologists and nurse anesthetists who seek advice on avoiding some of the most common and, more importantly, preventable complications of regional anesthesia and pain medicine.
Chapters cover a variety of neurologic complications and pain management issues. Critically important both to patient care and practice management are the chapters focusing on safety and best practice guidelines and the compendium of outcome studies that compare regional and general anesthesia. As in the first edition, the authorship provides an international perspective by including a section on morbidity studies featuring contributions from practitioners in the United States, Canada, Scandinavia, and France. Along with exploring the key issues and challenges a practitioner may face, the book includes an invaluable chapter addressing the important topic of the medical legal aspects of regional anesthesia.
With its concise clinical focus, numerous tables and illustrations, and extensive references, this up-to-the minute reference work will prove to be an invaluable tool for the practitioner in ensuring that patients receive the highest quality care.
