About this book

This is a comprehensive and authoritative presentation of total intravenous anesthesia (TIVA) and target controlled infusion (TCI). The editors’ international reputation has enabled them to recruit leading experts from around the world to write single-author chapters in their area of expertise. Total Intravenous Anesthesia and Target Controlled Infusions is the first multi-disciplinary, globally authored volume on the topic.  
Providing a single source of information on all aspects of TIVA and TCI, from pharmacologic modeling and the pharmacology of intravenous anesthetic drugs to practical considerations in the clinical setting and the requirements of special populations, Total Intravenous Anesthesia and Target Controlled Infusions examines the debate about the risks and advantages of TIVA, analyze outcome studies, and provides guidance on creating a curriculum to teach TIVA and TCI.

Reviews

“Total Intravenous Anesthesia and Target Controlled Infusions is a traditional textbook that bills itself as a comprehensive guide to the subject. … this textbook form part of the reference collection of all anesthetic department libraries. It is a high-quality volume, well bound with excellent color illustrations, printed on thick paper, and is a worthwhile purchase. … Those that take the time to read a good portion of it will be richly rewarded in their increased understanding of TIVA.” (Timothy G. Short and Gerard Willemsen, Anestesia & Analgesia, Vol. 125 (1), January, 2018)
