About this book

This book is a knowledge-based text that covers the anatomy, neurophysiology, and neuropharmacology needed to carry out the necessary management and cerebrospinal protection during neuroanesthesia. Especially to make the subject of neuroanesthesia more approachable, we introduce surgical measures utilized in neurosurgery, cardiovascular surgery, neuromodulation, and related procedures.

The main purpose of neuroanesthesia/neurocritical care is to deliver cerebrospinal protection in neurosurgical and cardiovascular surgeries. How should we select the best anesthetic management to prevent neurological complications for patients who, for instance, undergo different types of surgery for subarachnoid hemorrhage, stroke, head trauma, carotid endarterectomy, or cardiovascular surgery under cardiopulmonary bypass? These pathological conditions include the risk of transient cerebrospinal ischemia, and if our management is not precise, it may induce serious neurological sequelae. Although there is an urgent need to establish the treatment and elucidate the molecular mechanisms of cerebrospinal injury, many components are intertwined, making this a challenge we have not completely solved yet.

This volume makes the management of neuroanesthesia more accessible not only for primary residents but also for specialists, providing a valuable resource on the current perspectives of neuroanesthesia.

Reviews

“The textbook from Uchino and colleagues, Neuroanesthesia and Cerebrospinal Protection, is an effort to amalgamate the complex nature of the processes involved in a neurosurgical patient. … this book is a reasonable attempt at a current evidence-based textbook in neuroanesthesia directed toward residents and junior faculty alike. … there is a considerable emphasis on local Japanese content, the perspectives it brings make it a valuable addition to any departmental library.” (Nitin Ahuja, Canadian Journal of Anesthesia, Vol. 64, 2017)

“This overview of neuroanesthesia covers both basic science and clinical aspects. … The intended audience is in-training and postgraduate neuroanesthesiologists, and the book is written to suit everyone’s needs. … This book is very well written. … It’s easy on the eye and captivating, making reading it very pleasurable.” (Tariq M. Malik, Doody’s Book Reviews, November, 2015)
