Abstract

Anesthesia Outside of the Operating Room 2nd edition covers all aspects of providing anesthesia in settings outside of the main operating room, with a special focus on techniques, procedures and safety considerations. It discusses anesthetic concerns by procedure location, and includes selected latest guidelines from the American Society of Anesthesiologists (ASA) and other professional societies. Topics include patient monitoring techniques, pre-procedure evaluation and post-procedure care, and procedural sedation performed by non-anesthesia providers. The authors address problems of anesthesia that have unique answers in settings outside the operating room, such as patient transport and cardiac arrest, and discuss technological progress and considerations for the future. The text also covers surgical procedures and anesthetic considerations by procedure location, such as radiology, infertility clinics, field and military environments, and pediatric settings.
