About this book

The book presents more than 60 real-life cases which together memorably and succinctly convey the depth and breadth of clinical anesthesiology.    Each chapter includes a case summary, questions, lessons learned, and selected references.  Tables and distinctive visual synopses of key teaching points enhance many chapters.

The cases have been selected by Dr. Benumof from the Morbidity and Mortality (M & M) conferences of the Department of Anesthesiology, University of California, San Diego, which he has moderated the last several years, and residents and junior faculty have crafted them into the chapters of this book.  Structured in a novel way, the UCSD Anesthesiology M&Ms maximize teaching and learning, and these cases bring that experience right to the reader’s finger tips. 

  • Case coverage of respiration- and circulation-related problems, obstetrics,  neurology, pain and regional anesthesia, pediatrics, outpatient surgery, and special topics
  •  Resource for anesthesiology and critical care medicine trainees
  •  Review tool for board certification or recertification
  •  Fun reading – valuable lessons!

Reviews

From the reviews:

“This is a compilation of cases that impart life-saving management strategies for various emergency conditions that may arise while patients are under the care of anesthesiologists. … intended for anesthesia trainees at all levels, but even experienced anesthesiologists will find something of value. … will help all anesthesia residents be prepared for the emergencies that are inevitable when caring for patients. … It takes a real-life urgent scenario and teaches in a stepwise fashion how to handle the issue safely.” (Tariq M. Malik, Doody’s Book Reviews, April, 2014)
