Editorial Reviews

Review

"Alvarez's lucid presentation of these complex and timely issues is an achievement in itself, but even more so is his production of a very readable book. This book is assured to inform and complement the busy clinician. I recommend it to every physician involved in the care of the morbidly obese patient." Obesity Surgery

Book Description

Written by international experts in the field, this comprehensive book covers all aspects of obesity that may impact upon the practice of the anaesthetist, intensivist or other healthcare professional dealing with the obese patient. The information is presented in a logical manner--opening chapters cover the underlying pathophysiology of obesity and move on to discuss general risk factors, legal and ethical aspects of anaesthesia, changes in pharmacokinetics and pharmacodynamics, pre-operative assessment and management. The main section of the book then focuses on specific problems related to the obese patient.

Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
A well researched and referenced book that has proved invaluable. The detailed analysis of the pathophysiological changes of morbid obesity will stop any reader from eating a biscuit with their morning coffee! Whilst an easily found list of abbreviations does help some of the text begins to look like alphabet soup with what sometimes seems to be at least a third of the words in the sentence abbreviated.
