This book, published in a portable, soft-cover format, is a concise treatment of the current practice of neuroanesthesia. The first edition, published in 1983, was the earliest entry in this category and, as such, filled a void. The second edition is, at a minimum, an update and, in some areas, an expansion of some tersely treated subjects of the first edition. The result is a compact, yet thorough, treatment of clinically relevant topics and guidelines for the delivery of perioperative anesthetic care of neurosurgical patients.
The book contains chapters provided by over 30 contributors who discuss material derived primarily from anesthesiology, although some contributors represent the disciplines of neurosurgery and neuroradiology. Notable contributors from neuroanesthesia include, among others, James Cottrell, Elizabeth Frost, Betty Grundy, Jane Matjesko, and Donald Prough. All 17 chapters of this book are categorized into one of three broad sections: "General Considerations," "Intensive Care," and "Anesthetic Management."
