by Roberta L. Hines, M.D., HS ’77, chair and the Nicholas M. Greene Professor of Anesthesiology, and Katherine E. Marschall, M.D., assistant professor of anesthesiology (Elsevier) This edition has been updated to reflect the latest information to help clinicians avoid or manage complications stemming from pre-existing medical conditions. Organized by disease, the new edition provides guidance on definition, current pathophysiology and pre-, intra- and postoperative factors of the disease process, anesthetic judgment and management. It provides case studies that exemplify how to overcome a wide range of challenges, and it examines specific anesthesia considerations for special populations, including pediatric and geriatric patients.
