About this book

This book offers a comprehensive, up-to-date overview of optimal postoperative care in patients who have undergone thoracic surgery and discusses challenging issues that are of interest not only in the context of thoracic surgery but also more generally within the fields of anesthesia, intensive care, and pain medicine. The coverage ranges, for example, from use of non-invasive ventilation, extracorporeal membrane oxygenation, and new monitoring devices to fluid management, pain control, and treatment of arrhythmias. A key feature of the book is the exceptionally attractive list of authors, who represent the most authoritative experts on the topics that they address. The approach is appropriately multidisciplinary, acknowledging that in many centers thoracic anesthetists are responsible for care during the postoperative period. This book is exceptional in being devoted solely to postoperative care in thoracic surgery, even though the difficulties involved in thoracic operations sometimes exceed those of cardiac surgery, especially in the postoperative period.

Reviews

“This book discusses the various aspects of managing thoracic surgery patients ranging from immediate PACU care to the unique complications and challenges that thoracic patients pose. … This book seems most suitable for a residency and fellowship audience. … an ideal resource for thoracic surgery nurse practitioners and medical students as well. … This is a good overview and instruction for managing all manner of postsurgical thoracic patients.” (Carmen Tugulan, Doody’s Book Reviews, June, 2017)
