Pediatric Anesthesiology Procedures is intended as a ready resource of common procedures in Pediatric Anesthesiology for both experts and novices. It will be useful to both those with extensive training and experience as well as beginners and those with distant experience or training. A wealth of knowledge in the human factors of procedure design and use has been applied throughout to ensure that desired information can be easily located, that steps are clearly identified and comprehensible, and that additional information of high relevance to procedure completion is co-located and salient.
This book begins with the basics, but quickly progresses to advanced skill sets. It is divided into four parts. Part I focuses on the airway and breathing, and advances from the basics of airway management through specialty skills such as lung isolation. Part II covers vascular access, from the fundamentals of fluid management and programming several types of common pumps, to intraosseous placement. Part III examines neuraxial regional anesthesia techniques as well as sympathetic blocks performed by those with an additional fellowship in pain management. This volume concludes with Part IV on emergencies and critical conditions including cardiopulmonary resuscitation for neonates and older children, treatment of local anesthetic systemic toxicity. It also includes four chapters which detail the anesthetic management for classic neonatal surgical pathologies, such as tracheoesophageal fistula, myelomeningocele, gastroschisis/omphalocele, and congenital diaphragmatic hernia.Less
