Neuroanesthesiacontains the edited presentations of the 42nd Annual Postgraduate Course in Anesthesiology given by the Department of Anesthesiology at the University of Utah School of Medicine, February 1997. The chapters reflect recent advances in neurophysiology, pharmacology and monitoring related to the practice of neuroanesthesiology. The sections on central nervous system trauma, intraoperative management, brain protection and postoperative care provide a conceptual framework for current clinical practices.
This textbook is the fifteenth in a continuing series documenting the proceedings of the Postgraduate Course of the Department of Anesthesiology of the University of Utah School of Medicine. It reflects, as well as past and future volumes, the rapid and continuing evolution of anesthesia in the last years of the twentieth century.
