About this book

Patients with a range of medical conditions undergo surgeries of varying levels of risk, and the evolving field of consult medicine aims to address their needs, whether pre- or post-surgery. This new edition of The Perioperative Medicine Consult Handbook provides useful information, advice, and guidelines based on a combination of clinical experience and evidence-based medicine. It covers topics in many major clinical areas (anesthesiology, cardiology, pulmonology, gastroenterology, rheumatology, endocrinology, and many others) and puts critical surgery information at a consult physician's fingertips. New to this edition are chapters on thyroid disease, restrictive lung disease, sickle cell disease, inflammatory bowel disease, nutrition, and perioperative care of elderly patients. The entire volume has been streamlined for a more precise presentation of essential perioperative management guidelines. Originally created by the Medicine Consult Service team at the University of Washington Medical Center, and now fully updated into a comprehensive second edition, this quick reference is sure to be indispensable for residents and consult physicians alike.

Reviews

From the book reviews:

“This book discusses the specific preparations and considerations of patients who require surgical intervention. … The audience includes clinicians who routinely care for surgical patients, and the book’s reliance on the literature makes it invaluable for residents, attendings, and support staff who are involved in caring for patients in the perioperative period. … This is a superb addition to the personal medical library of every clinician who cares for patients in the perioperative period.” (Vincent F. Carr, Doody’s Book Reviews, March, 2015)
