About this book

The Difficult Airway provides a comprehensive textual and visual coverage of how to deal with patients who have expected or unexpected difficult airways. The text begins with a description of the incidence and importance of the difficult airway and then describes the ASA Difficult Airway Algorithm created to facilitate the management of “difficult airways.” The majority of the book features a comprehensive step-by-step approach to the rescue techniques listed as part of the ASA Algorithm. Noted experts in each of the techniques have been recruited by the book editors to present the information. Figures throughout the book illustrate important points and procedures. This is a wonderful resource for professionals in the health care field including anesthesiologists, intensive care physicians, emergency room physicians, nurses, and out-of-hospital first responders.

Reviews

From the reviews:

“This multiauthored book describes airway management strategies for patients where mechanical control of the airway is deemed difficult. … Practitioners in emergency medicine, prehospital care, anesthesiology, surgery, pulmonology, and critical care medicine are an appropriate audience. … This is an excellent introduction to consensus-based protocols for airway management that integrates available technologies to manage this problem. … This is a worthy contribution for the material it collects.” (David J. Dries, Doody’s Book Reviews, November, 2013)
