  • The definitive up-to-date clinical reference on neonatal anesthesia
  • Edited and written by world-class experts in anesthesia, critical care and surgery
  • Perioperative focus on the safe delivery of anesthesia and sedation, pain prevention and management to surgical anesthesia within the context of current ethical considerations of the neonate with and without congenital anomalies
  • All essential current developments in pharmacology, regional anesthesia and pain management, monitoring, mechanical ventilation, nutrition and metabolism and airway management

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.
