Increasingly diverse conditions now treated surgically combined with developments in technology have made the field of pediatric anesthesia more complex. Even common medical problems may give rise to difficult decisions. This has created a need for a resource that covers the latest techniques in the field. Authoritative and comprehensive, Problems in Anesthesia: Pediatric Anesthesia provides guidance for a number of problematic clinical scenarios.

Highlighting the widening scope of the field, the book contains case histories that demonstrate successes and complications for a wide range of conditions. The book disseminates practical knowledge and experience to those working in this field and paves the way for further investigation and continued advancement. The editors, internationally recognized as experts in their field, have done an excellent job of putting together a panel of contributors. The exhaustive coverage of a range of frequent and infrequent problems puts their expertise within your reach.


"…the format is ideal for a review of challenging pediatric anesthetics, especially in preparation for an oral exam."
