Anesthesia for Congenital Heart Disease, 2nd Edition

Anesthesia for Congenital Heart Disease, 2nd Edition




This timely revision reflects the rapid advances in surgery and anesthesia for congenital heart disease that have occurred in recent years, including neonatal cardiac surgery and anesthesia, treatment of single ventricle patients, new diagnostic modalities, and developments in the catheterization laboratory. New chapters address mechanical support of the circulation, embryology, and quality/outcomes management.
