Essentials of Trauma Anesthesia 2nd Edition PDF
Essentials of Trauma Anesthesia 2nd Edition PDF injuries kill more than five million people annually. Millions more suffer the physical and psychologic consequences of injury, which have an enormous impact on patients, their families, and society. In the United States, trauma is the third leading cause of death in people of all ages, and the leading cause of death in individuals 46 years and younger.
TraumaEssentials of Trauma Anesthesia 2nd Edition PDF is also the single largest cause for years of life lost.
Although few anesthesiologists care exclusively for trauma patients, most will treat trauma patients at one time or another in their clinical practice. These encounters can occur at the end of the day or in the middle of the night and challenge clinicians to expeditiously manage multisystem derangements despite incomplete patient information.
Essentials of Trauma Anesthesia 2nd Edition PDF participation of anesthesiologists in the care of severely injured patients provides the best opportunity for improved outcome. We believe participation should not only include involvement in anesthetic management, but also the initial evaluation, resuscitation, and perioperative care of these patients. Unfortunately, current training does not expose trainees to the entire spectrum of trauma care. Although there are a few textbooks that deal with trauma anesthesia, these books are quite extensive, serve mostly as reference books, and are not meant to be read cover-to-cover.
Essentials of Trauma Anesthesia 2nd Edition PDF intention in creating the first edition of Essentials of Trauma Anesthesia was to provide anesthesiology trainees and practitioners with a concise review of the essential elements in the care of the severely injured patient and to emphasize the role of anesthesiol-
ogists in all aspects of trauma care: from time of injury until the patient leaves the critical care areas of the facility.
Essentials of Trauma Anesthesia 2nd Edition PDF second edition of Essentials of Trauma Anesthesia continues to pursue that goal while identifying many recent advances in trauma care including paradigm shifts in the management of bleeding and coagulopathy, new neuromuscular blockade and anticoagulant reversal drugs, and updated clinical practice guidelines.
Essentials of Trauma Anesthesia 2nd Edition PDF As in the first edition, we present, in three parts, the essential elements of trauma
anesthesia care. The first section deals with the core principles of trauma anesthesia includ-ing epidemiology, mechanisms of injury and prehospital care, initial evaluation and management, airway management, shock, resuscitation and fluid therapy, vascular cannulation,blood component therapy, general and regional anesthesia for trauma, monitoring, echocardiography, and postoperative care of the trauma patient. A new chapter dealing with coagulation monitoring of the bleeding trauma patient has been added to the first section.
The second section reviews the anesthetic considerations for traumatic injuries by anatomical area, and includes chapters on traumatic brain injury, spinal cord injury, ocular and maxillofacial trauma, and chest, abdominal and musculoskeletal trauma. The last section discusses anesthetic management of specific trauma populations including burn, pediatric,geriatric, and pregnant patients. Although we have maintained the structure, style, and format of the previous edition, all chapters have undergone extensive revisions to ensure
content is current.
