Essentials of Evidence Based Practice of Neuroanesthesia and Neurocritical Care Book Excerpt:

The current practice of medicine is largely moving toward applying an evidence-based approach. Evidence-based medicine is the integration of best research evidence using systematic reviews of the medical literature and then translating it into practice by selecting treatment options for specific cases based on the best research. Clinicians rely on the availability of evidence and accordingly take decisions to provide best treatment to their patients. Clinical management of neurologically compromised patients is challenging and varied; for this reason, treating physicians including neuroanesthesiologists are always in search of best available evidence for patient management and care. Essentials of Evidence-Based Practice of Neuroanesthesia and Neurocritical Care highlights the various controversies that exist in the practice of neuroanesthesia and provides conclusive evidence-based solutions. This comprehensive resource succinctly discusses evidence-based practice of neuroanesthesia based on systematic reviews in clinical neuroscience research. Topics include neurophysiology: ICP or CPP thresholds; neuropharmacology: intravenous or inhalational anesthetics; and neuromonitoring: ICP monitoring. Evidence-based practice is now an integral part of neuroscience, and this book will help residents and trainees gain knowledge to apply it to their practice. • Highlights the various controversies that exist in the practice of neuroanesthesia and provides conclusive evidence-based solutions • Topics include neurophysiology: ICP or CPP thresholds; neuropharmacology: intravenous or inhalational anesthetics; and neuromonitoring: ICP monitoring • Provides residents and trainees with the knowledge to apply evidence-based practice of neuroanesthesia to their practice

Fundamentals of Neuroanesthesia Book Excerpt:

Neurosurgical procedures are becoming more common and are taking place in the operating room and in interventional suites. Procedures that used to be performed only at major academic institutions are also being done in small community hospitals, and anesthesiologists in private practice are being asked to care for these patients. In many cases, treatment options are controversial or rapidly evolving. Close cooperation between the anesthesiologist and neurosurgeon is essential to achieve optimal outcomes and early recognition of any adverse events so appropriate therapy can be implemented. Fundamentals of Neuroanesthesia is a comprehensive guide to neuroanesthesia that discusses neurophysiology, neuroanatomy, and neurosurgical procedures and offers practical approaches and solutions to administering neuroanesthesia and providing perioperative care for neurosurgical patients. Chapters emphasize clinical management of neurosurgical problems that may be encountered in community practice as well as major academic medical centers. Highlighted key points, figures, algorithms, and management procedures supplement the text. This book is a must-have volume for general anesthesiologists, anesthesiology fellows, and subspecialists.

Fundamentals of Pediatric Neuroanesthesia Book Excerpt:

The book provides an excellent review of all the clinical aspects of neuroanesthesia in children, including neurosurgeries during fetal state to neonatal, infancy, toddler, and school-going age groups. To provide optimal anesthetic care in children undergoing neurosurgery, the care provider must have adequate knowledge on the developing brain and spinal cord, and the effect of anesthetics on the neuronal tissue, and the inherent issues pertaining to neurologic lesions. This book covers the diagnostic, imaging, surgical as well as anesthetic managements of all the neurosurgical problems in children. The chapters include a wide range of topics from basic neurophysiology to general concerns for pediatric neuroanesthesia, including fluid management, blood transfusion, temperature regulation, and surgical positioning, as well as specific issues such as anesthesia for brain tumor surgery, hydrocephalus, neural tube defects, cerebrovascular surgeries such as aneurysmal surgery, arteriovenous malformations (AVMs), Moyamoya disease, and vein of Galen malformation, functional neurosurgery, epilepsy surgery, neuroendoscopy, craniovertebral junction anomalies, spinal surgeries, neurotrauma, and brain abscess with congenital heart diseases. Interesting topics like neuroanesthesia in remote locations, regional anesthesia during neurosurgery, and anesthesia for children with neuromuscular disease are also discussed. Moreover, the book elaborates on advanced neuroanesthesia techniques during fetal neurosurgery and craniopagus separation surgery; and the postoperative intensive care management aspects in each chapter. It is supplemented with figures depicting surgical procedures and positioning, neuroimages, tables and illustrations for easy understanding. This book caters to neuroanesthesiologists, pediatric anesthesiologists, residents, and fellows of anesthesia or neuroanesthesia, practicing anesthesiologists, pediatric neurointensivists, nurse anesthetists, neurosurgeons, and pediatric neurosurgeons. It also serves as a reference book for the DM (neuroanesthesiology and neurocritical care), DNB-SS (neuroanesthesiology), and MD (anesthesiology) curriculums apart from anesthesia residency and pediatric anesthesia/ neurosurgery fellowship programs offered at various Institutions worldwide.
