This first Australian book on paediatric anaesthesia in 20 years is practical, descriptive and exam focused. It gives safe, experience-based ‘how-to’ approaches to common and rarer paediatric and neonatal conditions. Assuming readers know about adult anaesthesia, it focuses on what is different about children.
The key to paediatric anaesthesia is to learn the skills to be confident about managing a child’s airway, as everyone knows children go blue very fast . Once mastered, you can then start to enjoy working with children and learning the art of managing their anxiety and that of their parents
Written by clinical, full-time paediatric anaesthetists, this is the one book that gives both all the information for specialist exam preparation, and the knowledge of contemporary paediatric anaesthesia that will stand a consultant anaesthetist in good stead.
• Ideal for anaesthetists who only occasionally work with children
• Clean and readable layout with clear illustrations
• Includes all the available past Australasian and UK Fellowship exam questions on paediatric topics
