Cardiac Anaesthesia: A Practical Approach is the first concise reference text to cover all aspects of cardiac anaesthesia. Aimed at trainee anaesthetists and cardiac anaesthetic nurses, the book presents clear and concise guidelines enabling the medical practitioner with little or no cardiacexperience to develop and practise the required skills. For convenience the book has been divided into three main sections: Anatomy, physiology, and pharmacology Anaesthesia for adults Anaesthesia for children For both adults and children, the book explains how to prepare the patient for cardiacsurgery, presents instructions on anaesthesia for different types of cardiac surgery, and provides information on postoperative care. Cardiac Anaesthesia: a practical handbook will be an essential guide for anaesthetists in training, and nurses involved in the care of cardiac patients.
