About this book

The Manual of Geriatric Anesthesia is a practical guide for physicians, residents, and students interested in the care of the elderly patient undergoing surgery. Although primarily written for anesthesiologists, other perioperative physicians and nurses will also find the information highly valuable. Highlights of the text include concise and clear discussions of preoperative assessment, anesthetic administration, the immediate postoperative care, as well as the more classic ‘geriatric’ topics such as the hip fracture patient, cataract surgery, postoperative delirium, dementia, ethics and end of life care. Clinical geriatric principles are woven into the text so that the reader can develop skills in geriatrics and develop a broader understanding of terminology and principles used in geriatric medicine.

Reviews

From the reviews:

“This book attempts to draw together many of these relevant subject areas, emphasizing the multidisciplinary nature of care and providing useful background information on ethics and legal aspects and also specific issues of anaesthetic care. … a good attempt to present a practical overview to the perioperative management of our aging population which I would recommend to a general, broad anaesthetic readership.” (D. M. Coventry, British Journal of Anaesthesia, Vol. 111 (1), August, 2013)

“This book contains a mix of geriatric anesthesia ‘must-knows’ and more general information on topics related to the elderly. … written for all anesthesiologists who are seeking to improve upon their basic knowledge of the field of geriatric anesthesia. It is written at a level appropriate for those with a good base of knowledge in the field of anesthesia in general, and aims to supplement that understanding. … an up-to-date, easy-to-read, and succinct book that covers many of the issues involved in this patient population.” (Martin H. Dauber, Doody’s Review Service, January, 2013)
