The Pediatric Anesthesia Manual The purpose of The Pediatric Anesthesia Manual is to provide an initial exposure to a variety of pediatric cases. The length of this rotation, 4 weeks, is enough to allow participation in the care of about 100 patients. Residents on this rotation should be able to develop skills for setting up OR for pediatric patients of different ages and should master skills in mask ventilation and intubation of pediatric patients including neonates. Topics for discussion should include neonatal emergencies, pediatric airways, ETT cases, general surgical cases, and questions from written and oral boards. One of the goals of this rotation is to prepare residents for routine "bread and butter" cases, to be safe with pediatric patients, and to be able to identify situations in which he or she might need help. FEATURES: A concise and easily referable guide ideal for use during anesthesiology residency training and fellowships. A templated chapter layout ideal for easy referral by wider members of the multidisciplinary team, such as cardiologists, cardiac intensivists, perfusionists, and surgeons. Guidelines on specific lesions for the pediatric anesthesiologist caring for cardiac patients presenting for non-cardiac surgery. Helpful illustrations and a bulleted content for rapid reference. This book is a valuable resource for all anesthesiology and cardiac critical care providers who manage patients with congenital heart disease, and an ideal study aid.
