4.0 out of 5 stars.  Great peds anesthesia handbook, May 04, 2005
By The helper monkey
This is a concise problem oriented handbook of peds anesthesia. Unlike other similar references, this handbook offers a somewhat different, albeit more practical approach to anesthetic care for children. Rather than illustrate how to do a tonsillectomy, or how to do a ureteral reimplant, this book addresses braoder issues that can be applied to a vast array of surgical procedures. For example, there is a chapter that deals with the anesthetic considerations of children with neuromuscular diseases such as DMD, CP or myelomeningocele. There are chapters that look at such diverse topics as approaches to managing children with congenital heart disease as well as children with a URI. What I like about this book is that it focuses on anesthetic management issues of children with various disease processes as opposed to simply managing the surgery. While knowledge of the surgical procedure is very important, any competent peds anesthesiologist knows that not every tonsillectomy carries the same considerations. If we approach our care in that way, I believe that we risk becoming technicians as opposed to physicians.

This is a great little reference for trainees. It also would work well for attendings who need a quick review of relevant pediatric anesthesia topics. The burn and trauma chapters could stand to be revised in the next edition.
