About this book


Patients with a range of medical conditions undergo surgeries of varying levels of risk, and the evolving field of consult medicine aims to address their needs, whether pre- or post-surgery. This new edition of The Perioperative Medicine Consult Handbook provides useful information, advice, and guidelines based on a combination of clinical experience and evidence-based medicine. It covers topics in many major clinical areas (anesthesiology, cardiology, pulmonology, gastroenterology, rheumatology, endocrinology, and many others) and puts critical surgery information at a consult physician's fingertips. New to this edition are chapters on thyroid disease, restrictive lung disease, sickle cell disease, inflammatory bowel disease, nutrition, and perioperative care of elderly patients. The entire volume has been streamlined for a more precise presentation of essential perioperative management guidelines. Originally created by the Medicine Consult Service team at the University of Washington Medical Center, and now fully updated into a comprehensive second edition, this quick reference is sure to be indispensable for residents and consult physicians alike.
