About this book

Reflecting the rapid growth of pain medicine and of ultrasound as a tool, this Third Edition is more comprehensive and inclusive than previous editions and features additional pages, tables, diagrams, and color illustrations. In addition to the discipline of Anesthesiology, other specialists, who use local and regional anesthesia techniques, (surgeons, ophthalmologists, emergency medicine physicians and dentists), have also contributed to this edition of the book. Complications of Regional Anesthesia, with its newly added subtitle, Principles of Safe Practice in Local and Regional Anesthesia, stresses the relatively new emphasis and importance on safety and prevention and broadens the discussion to include the practice and administration of not just regional but also local anesthesia.

Each chapter has been thoroughly revised, brought up-to-date, and features full color images. Individual chapters cover complications associated with specific nerve blocks; IV and catheter methods; obstetric regional anesthesia; pediatric regional anesthesia; ophthalmic regional anesthesia; and treatment of acute and chronic pain.

Reviews

“This book provides a unique and timely overview of this rare but highly relevant topic, and it presents clear and comprehensive principles of safe practice. … Consequently, this book is essential for physicians of all disciplines who regularly apply local and regional anesthesia in their daily practice, and it will definitely contribute to further improving the safety of these techniques.” (Wolfgang Zink, Anesthesia & Analgesia, Vol. 126 (5), May, 2018)
“Complications of Regional Anesthesia: Principles … Third Edition, in this continuing series, represents a deep dive into the available knowledge regarding regional anesthesia… . The text is thorough, easy to read, and appropriate for anyone, from residents and fellows to the seasoned regional anesthesia practitioner. It is clearly written with a major focus on anesthesiologists, but it is suitable for practitioners from a diverse range of disciplines. The multinational authorship makes it a relevant text for readers around the world.” (M. K. Kwofie, Canadian Journal of Anesthesia/Journal canadien d'anesthésie, Vol. 65, 2018)
