This practical reference is a comprehensive guide to the anaesthetic and perioperative management of patients during all procedures performed by general and subspecialist surgeons. It explains each procedure from both the surgeon's and the anaesthesiologist's point of view presents details on anaesthetic technique, and steers the anaesthesiologist and surgeon through the crucial decisions that must be made before, during, and after surgery. For each surgical procedure, the text describes the surgery itself and summarizes key preoperative, intraoperative, and postoperative surgical considerations, such as patient population characteristics, duration of surgery, site of incision, patient positioning, blood loss, frequency of intraoperative complications, postoperative requirements, and an estimate of postoperative pain. For each procedure, the authors give step-by-step instructions on preoperative assessment and preparation, anaesthetic induction and maintenance, procedures to follow during emergence from anaesthesia, patient monitoring, and management of complications and postoperative pain.
