About this book

Each chapter includes an ethical challenge presented as a clinical case scenario that readers may relate to in their daily practice of anesthesiology and surgery. The ethical issues surrounding each chapter’s content are examined in an easily understandable manner for the specific target audience to improve the understanding and management of ethical dilemmas in patient care. ​Informed consent issues for the adult and pediatric patient, perioperative considerations of do-not-resuscitate orders, ethical issues of drug shortages, transplantation ethics, surgical care of patients and futility, conscientious objection, informed consent and disclosure of surgeon experience, and research and publication ethics are included and based on the experience of the Editor and the roster of contributors.

Reviews

“The book takes a standard approach of using clinical case scenarios. Case scenarios are designed to hook the reader, to show clinical application, and to reinforce central points. ... It is a well-written and thorough survey, and it is a terrific book to base an introductory course in perioperative ethics. I recommend it to those who are beginning to participate in clinical ethics. … this book is well suited for the episodic nature of trainee education found in academic medicine.” (David B. Waisel, Anesthesia & Analgesia, Vol. 123 (4), October, 2016)


“This is a collection of articles on a wide range of issues particular to the disciplines of surgery and anesthesiology and the unique relationship they share. Each chapter starts with a case scenario that is discussed and analyzed within its own specific context. … the book is intended for medical professionals, both in practice and in training, as well as educational institutions and hospital committees. This is an effective educational tool for all these audiences, including nonphysicians.” (Brandy M. Fox, Doody's Book Reviews, September, 2016)
