About this book

This comprehensive textbook, covering all aspects of the perioperative management of patients undergoing organ transplantation, serves as the standard reference for clinicians who care for transplant patients on a day-to-day basis as well as those who encounter organ transplantation only occasionally in their clinical practice. Anesthesia and Perioperative Care for Organ Transplantation covers transplantation of the heart, lung, liver, pancreas, and kidney, as well as multivisceral and composite tissue graft transplantations. For each kind of transplantation, the full spectrum of perioperative considerations is addressed: preoperative preparation, intraoperative anesthesia management, surgical techniques, and postoperative care. Each chapter contains evidence-based recommendations, relevant society guidelines, management algorithms, and institutional protocols as tables, flow diagrams, and figures. Photographs demonstrating surgical techniques, anesthesia procedures, and perfusion management are included. Anesthesia and Perioperative Care for Organ Transplantation is for anesthesiologists and critical care physicians; transplantation surgeons; nurse anesthetists; ICU nurses; and trainees.​​

Reviews

“This textbook is truly a multidisciplinary collaboration of perioperative transplant management, offering a balance between relevant science underpinning clinical care and expert clinical insight. … I would recommend this book to all clinicians caring for patients undergoing organ transplantation. Dr. Starzl concluded that ‘this book would serve as an authentic reference’ for both the novice and experienced clinician. I think he was right.” (Sonja Payne, Canadian Journal of Anesthesia, March, 2017)

“This is a comprehensive, evidence-based overview of the historical, perioperative, and intraoperative considerations in transplant anesthesia. … targeted at those who care for patients undergoing transplant, with a focus on anesthesia concerns. It has an appropriate focus and amount of detail for residents, fellows, midlevel/CRNA providers, and attending practitioners. … an excellent addition to the transplant literature, providing anesthesia and critical care perspectives for an area in which much of the literature is focused strictly on surgical or medical topics.” (Kelly M. Collins, Doody's Book Reviews, February, 2017)
