Neonatal Anesthesia (Hardback)Jerrold Lerman (editor)
- We can order this
This is the first comprehensive book in more than a decade in the very specialized field of neonatal anesthesia. Edited and written by a team of recognized experts in neonatal anesthesia, surgery, and intensive care, this volume is the quintessential clinical reference for perioperative care of these small patients.
The considerations of developmental physiology and pharmacology, which influence anesthesia care and pain management, are clearly explained. Care for surgical and medical procedures, including sedation and monitoring in and out of the operating room, is detailed. Congenital disorders of all organ systems are described together with their current management.
The special considerations for neonatal intensive care - current recommendations for fluid, nutrition, and metabolic requirements, mechanical ventilation, and management of the airway - are detailed.
This topical volume concludes with a summary of complications and ethical considerations in the neonate.

"Lerman's book stands alone as an up-to-date text dedicated exclusively to the practice of anesthesia in neonates ... . The text covers its subject matter in extraordinary breadth and depth. ... Throughout the book there are illustrative and clinically relevant diagrams, nicely supporting and summarizing relevant text for the more visual learner. ... Neonatal Anesthesia is a sophisticated but approachable text that offers its readers theory-based practical approaches to understanding and managing anesthesia in our youngest, most fragile patient population." (Stephanie A. Black and Lynne G. Maxwell, Anesthesiology, Vol. 125 (3), 2016)
"It is a long-awaited contribution to the literature, filling a gap of over a decade without a neonatal anaesthesia textbook. ... textbook should hold an essential and required spot on the bookshelf of any anaesthetist or critical care physician who cares for neonates. ... The reference lists are comprehensive and exhaustive. Dr Lerman should be commended for finally presenting the anaesthesia community worldwide with this textbook, which will be able to stand on its own, probably for the next decade." (K. P. Mason, British Journal of Anaesthesia, Vol. 116 (4), 2016)
"This book covers in 400-plus pages and 17 chapters most of what is known about the neonatal airway, physiology, drugs and anesthetics, with separate chapters on each subcategory of neonatal anesthesia. ... Certainly pediatric surgeons, anesthesiologists who only occasionally care for children, students, residents, and fellows will appreciate this book. ... This is a large book on a narrow topic that has increasing relevance to the field of current pediatric practice. It is well written, well illustrated, and highly useful." (Robert M. Arensman, Doody's Book Reviews, April, 2015)
"The book has many outstanding chapters that have been thoughtfully crafted by leading researchers in specific fields. ... this book is an essential addition to any pediatric anesthesiology library in any organization that provides care to neonates. This book is an excellent resource, not only for anesthesiologists at every level of training and expertise but also for other professionals who provide postoperative care, administer sedative drugs, control the airway, and undertake procedures in newborn infants." (Carolyne Montgomery and J. Mark Ansermino, Canadian Journal of Anesthesia, Vol. 62, 2015)
