For years the administrative of anesthesia was extremely dangerous and risky. Because of this the surgeon and anesthesiologist had to balance the risks and benefits for each patient before proceeding with surgery. In the last two decades the care of the surgical patient has changed dramatically. New equipment, monitors and pharmacologic agents have transformed surgical technique and improved outcomes. Patients once deemed “too sick” for the operating room are found frequently on operating room schedules nationwide. Today, anesthesiology for the healthy patient in most developed countries is extremely safe. However, perioperative complications still occur. These events can be catastrophic for patients and may have serious implications for residents, surgical and anesthesiology staff and nurses. Prompt recognition and management of these incidents may reduce or negate complications. This is based on a fundamental base of knowledge acquired through several avenues and practiced with other team members to maximize outcomes. Engagement of all caregivers impacts outcomes. Many organizations do not have the structural components or education to recognize or manage these catastrophic events. This textbook will provide educational material for the many students, as well as nurses, residents or attending physicians who participate in perioperative medicine. It will focus on the most serious perioperative complications and include a discussion of the pathophysiologic and pharmacologic implications unique to each. Additionally, it will provide medicolegal information pertinent to those providing care to these patients. All chapters will be written with the most current and relevant information by leading experts in each field.The layout and format is designed to be purposeful, logical and visually effective. Other features include review questions and answers, chapter summaries and shaded call-out boxes to facilitate learning. Catastrophic Perioperative Complications and Management will be of great utility for medical and nursing students, anesthesiology residents, student nurse anesthestists, surgical residents, nurses involved in perioperative medicine as well as surgical and anesthesiology attending physicians.

Millions of procedures, surgical and non-surgical, are performed around the world each year. Management of perioperative pain is of great importance to patients, and a critical management issue for physicians and other health professionals who provide perioperative care. Healthcare facilities and national accrediting organizations have established standards surrounding proper management of perioperative pain. There is now an increased burden on every hospital and training program to ensure that healthcare providers understand the essentials of pain management and are able to recognize and treat pain in a timely fashion. Poorly controlled pain leads to patient dissatisfaction and contributes to increased morbidity and mortality, such as myocardial infarction, pneumonia, and emotional effects. Proper management, including appropriate pharmacologic management and regional analgesic techniques, can improve function and shorten length of hospital stay. Patients who are undergoing procedures under sedation or anesthesia need to receive adequate pain relief with drugs or regional anesthetic techniques. In the recovery room following the procedure, the staff taking care of the patient needs to be properly trained to diagnose and treat post-procedural pain. Part of the Oxford American Pain Library, this concise, evidence-based clinical guide serves as a tool for every clinician who wishes to understand the basic mechanisms, pharmacology, invasive and noninvasive treatment modalities, guidelines and development of pain management protocols. The authors address new technologies, chronic pain issues, running an acute pain service, opioid and non-opioid pharmacology (including newly approved drugs), epidural and other regional anesthesia, and special populations such as pediatric patients, the elderly, and patients with a co-existing disease.

Frail older people now contribute the majority of the acute emergency take both medical and surgical. Despite this there is often a lack of confidence and knowledge among doctors and nurses in treating older people in the Emergency Department and on Emergency Assessment Units.From the Preface Emergency care of frail older people is challenging but very rewarding. Older patients tend to be complex and therefore their assessment needs to be more extensive and include comprehensive geriatric assessment. It is the extras in their assessment that are not usually needed in younger patients, such as cognitive, functional and social evaluations that make the difference in achieving a better outcome. This book describes the key features of high quality care for frail elderly patients in acute hospital settings. With chapters on assessment and the characteristic non-specific ways that patients tend to present (such as 'confusion', 'collapse query cause' and 'off legs'), this practical guide is ideal to have on-hand. As well as common medical and surgical conditions, it also covers medication management, elder abuse, pressure ulcers and hypothermia, including the physiological changes seen in ageing and ways to define frail patients. Tables, diagrams and images are ideal for quick reference, and key points are summarised throughout the text to aid comprehension, providing doctors, nurses and therapists with both background and essential information to provide the excellent acute care older people deserve.
