Based on a program of study developed at the Children's Hospital Boston, Department of Anesthesiology, Perioperative and Pain Medicine, Pediatric Anesthesiology Review: Clinical Cases for Self-Assessment provides essential medical information for the subspecialty of pediatric anesthesiology. Illustrating the broad spectrum of the pediatric anesthesiologist's practice, this book utilizes an interactive question and answer dialogue which imitates the simplicity of conversation and affords the reader high-yield benefits. The case-based approach encourages readers to collaborate with colleagues, improve their oral presentation skills, and prepare for challenging situations by explaining various anesthesia care plans and why specific data are required before and during the care of the pediatric patient.Written by a panel of specialists recognized internationally for their efforts in their respective areas within pediatric anesthesia and examiners for various medical specialty boards including the American Board of Anesthesiology, this self-assessment programmed text for residents, fellows, and clinicians in the field of pediatric anesthesiology offers extremely valuable advice. The ability to explain why, in addition to how, is central to the Children's Hospital Boston program's philosophy, and Pediatric Anesthesiology Review: Clinical Cases for Self-Assessment maintains this ideal in the crafting of this book.An interactive question and answer program is featured on

Editorial Reviews

From the reviews:"This book presents pediatric anesthesia cases with a step-by-step discussion of plans/alternatives/considerations in the style of oral board examination questions. . The authors intend the book primarily for those who wish to become pediatric anesthesiologists or are seeking extra preparation for the American Board of Anesthesiology (ABA) oral examination. . Clear and concise explanations follow each section, enhancing readability." (Martin Dauber, Doody's Review Service, August, 2010)"This book is the distillation of material used over a number of years as part of the educational program in paediatric anaesthesia at the Children's Hospital Boston, USA. . The 600-page book is to be used, according to the advice of the authors, as a guide for interactive study . . The book can be recommended as an essential educational tool for anaesthetists with a particular interest in paediatric anaesthesia, and should be in the library of all teaching departments of anaesthesia." (R. Westhorpe, Anaesthesia and Intensive Care, Vol. 39 (2), March, 2011)"The book comes from Boston Children's Hospital and is based on their curriculum for training in paediatric anaesthesia. . it is a book for teachers, and a good one at that. Questions are posed which can be used 'off the shelf' to initiate informative discussions among trainees and experienced consultants. . if you are a college tutor or educational supervisor, then do buy it to use as a basis for teaching, wide ranging discussion and a template for future tutorials."­­­ (I. Barker, British Journal of Anaesthesia, Vol. 107 (6), December, 2011)
