Abstract

Clinical Pediatric Anesthesia: A Case-Based Handbook presents the reader with a very wide variety of clinical scenarios regarding the perioperative management of pediatric patients. It is divided into 15 sections and covers the field of pediatric anesthesiology with a point-of-care approach. This textbook has over 50 contributors who are pediatric anesthesiologists at tertiary children’s hospitals, thus giving the reader multiple approaches to the anesthetic care of the pediatric patient. The clinician can use the discussion section as an opportunity to review various options as well as the advantages and disadvantages of different aspects of the perioperative management of the pediatric patient. Given the many benefits of self-directed and simulation-based learning, the reader is presented with an “Introduction” to the subject, followed by “Learning Objectives” to master after reading the section. By placing the reader in a variety of clinical scenarios, the clinician can think through the management of such vignettes with the “Discussion” section that is written in a “question and answer” format. Each chapter ends with the highest yield, and most salient information presented in the “Summary”. “Annotated References,” “Bibliography,” and “Further Reading” allow the reader to explore the literature pertaining to the topic. Overall, the variety of cases presented along with the expertise of the contributors renders valuable real-life clinical situations that promote critical thinking and evaluation necessary for all pediatric anesthesiology consultants.
