Description

Overcome the risks to ensure safe anesthesia in your young patients

The surgical options for children, from birth through adolescence, have mushroomed in recent years. The challenges to anesthetists have consequently increased in scope and complexity. The 5th edition of Gregory's Pediatric Anesthesia introduces you to the basics of pediatric anesthesia, and how they are applied to contemporary practice both in and out of the operating room. The evidence-based approach is supplemented by in-depth case studies that spotlight best-practice in action across all the major subspecialties. New to this edition are:

  • Developmental physiology of individual organ systems
  • Fetal surgery
  • Spine surgery
  • Post-anesthesia Care Unit management
  • Complications
  • Neurotoxicity
  • Communication, databases and electronic records

Purchase includes an enhanced Wiley Desktop Edition*. This is an interactive digital version featuring:

  • all text and images in fully searchable form
  • integrated videos of procedures
  • highlighting and note taking facilities
  • book marking
  • linking to additional references

Edited by true leaders in the field of pediatric anesthesia, with contributions from internationally renowned physicians, Gregory's Pediatric Anesthesia remains the most complete resource available for your training, practice and continuing education.
