Abstract

This book has grown out of decades of practicing simulation and teaching concepts of perioperative crisis resource management at our institutions, at national meetings, and in our residency and fellowship training programs. The purpose is to fill a gap between two areas of valuable work that exist in the perioperative emergency space; namely, between books that consist largely of steps of diagnosing a problem followed by a list of treatment steps and those reference books or articles that form the compendium works. As such, the goal of this volume is to be an up-to-date, high-yield, clinically relevant resource for understanding the epidemiology, pathophysiology, and proper assessment and management of a wide variety of perioperative emergencies. Our target audience is anesthesiologists, nurse anesthetists, surgeons, recovery and critical care nurses, and anyone else practicing within the perioperative arena.
