About this book
This volume deals with the basic aspects of anesthesia, intensive care and pain in neonates and children. The topics covered include anatomy and physiology, strategies that can be applied to the treatment of these patients, and the use of "off-label" pharmacological agents in pediatric perioperative medicine. Internationally recognized guidelines aimed at standardizing the most important procedures, such as the treatment of hypothermia, central venous catheterization techniques and prevention of catheter-induced infections are also discussed. The last part of the book is focused more on clinical and technical aspects of anesthesia induction and monitoring. The book will be a useful update for neonatologists, pediatricians and anesthesiologists in their clinical practice, and an educational tool for residents in these fields.
