Review

Doody's Book Review Service, 05-MAY-08, Tariq M. Malik, MD, University of Chicago Pritzker School of Medicine -- "This is an excellent, concise, pertinent, and clinically oriented review of complications in anesthesia. Compared to two other books (Anesthesia and Perioperative Complications, 2nd edition, Benumof and Saidman (Mosby, 1999) and Complications in Anesthesia, 2nd edition, Atlee (Elsevier, 2007), this one is much easier to read and is more up to date. If I have to buy a book on this topic, it has to be this one."-Doody's Book Review Service (Weighted Numerical Score: 96; 4 Stars) University of Chicago Pritzker School of Medicine, Tariq M. Malik, MD -- This excellent, up-to-date review covers the full range of complications in anesthesiology related to different systems, equipment, and anesthetic techniques. Key points at the end of each chapter are a distinguishing feature. The last edition was published in 1996, making this update long overdue. This book is intended to familiarize anesthesiologists with complications that happen despite their best efforts. Improvements have made the practice of anesthesia so safe that we do not often see complications. This makes this topic and this book all the more relevant. The authors have successfully tackled the issue with a very readable and concise book. The audience is everyone who practices anesthesia. It will be an asset for residents who will find many of the topics covered only in passing in standard anesthesia textbooks. It will also be helpful for physicians, especially surgeons, who want some insight into potential anesthetic complications as they ask their patients to provide informed consent. The four chapters in the first of the book's six sections covers risk assessment and the all-important subject of legal aspects of complications. The second section of 47 chapters covers complications in different organ systems, including respiratory, cardiovascular, neurologic, renal, blood, gastrointestinal, endocrine, thermoregulation, obstetric, and immunologic. The third section covers machine malfunction, fires, and explosion as well as invasive monitoring complications. Section four covers complications of different anesthesia techniques, nerve injuries, and positioning. The final two sections deal with pharmacologic issues and occupational hazards for anesthesiologists. The book is well written and the chapter outline uses a problem-focused approach. The chapters are focused and well illustrated, and each one ends with a summary of take home points. It's hard to find anything wrong with this book. As the authors note in the preface, they had to make choices about what to keep in and what to leave out. As a result, there is a bit less stress on the management of complications, such as what to do once one suspects a nerve injury. There is no discussion in the chapter on medicolegal issues about how to communicate with family members once a complication occurs. The significant topic of complications in laparoscopic surgery is missing. However, these shortcomings do not take anything away from the book. This is an excellent, concise, pertinent, and clinically oriented review of complications in anesthesia. Compared to two other books (Anesthesia and Perioperative Complications, 2nd edition, Benumof and Saidman (Mosby, 1999) and Complications in Anesthesia, 2nd edition, Atlee (Elsevier, 2007), this one is much easier to read and is more up to date. If I have to buy a book on this topic, it has to be this one. Weighted Numerical Score: 96 - 4 Stars!

I used one the previous edition for my studies as the registrar. I cannot recall now which year it was published, I remember it was a soft cover and the material was laid out in bullet points. It was a comprehensive and informative text, covering not only complications, but he broad basics of clinical anaesthesiology as well. I have been a consultant for the last sixteen years, and I have recommended this book to my registrars numerous times. Eventually I decided to get the copy for my library.

Boy, was I disappointed. It is difficult to believe that it is possible to dumb down such a good text that it used to be. The format and the tone have changed, so that it reads like a book for students or nurses. A chapter on bleeding without the mention of Extraction Ratio? The earlier edition was where I learned about it in the first place!

I do not recommend this book. In its current format it does not provide more information than any other text. Very disappointing.

I find this book very comprehensive and easy to read. It has much of the needed informations for a clinicians, residents and other anesthesia-related enthusiast. The book itself is divided into sections, each with very practical and clinically related questions answered in a very practical and easiliy comprehended way. Also very importatant it has large font and very smooth pages that do indure most of the writing and highlighting the text.
