The most widely used clinical reference in cardiac anesthesia, A Practical Approach to Cardiac Anesthesia, provides complete information on drugs, monitoring, cardiopulmonary bypass, circulatory support, and anesthetic management of specific cardiac disorders. This large handbook incorporates clinically relevant basic science into a practical "what-to-do" approach and is written in an easy-to-read outline format.
Designed for practicing anesthesiologists, as well as anesthesia residents, fellows in cardiothoracic anesthesia, perfusionists, and all other anesthesia practitioners, this handbook delivers comprehensive and expertly presented views of the discipline ¿ with outstanding color graphics and the practical, how-to style of a manual.
