9780071445481: Management of the Difficult and Failed Airway

The first exclusive guide to the management of the difficult and failed airway -- presented by a team of international experts

A Doody's Core Title for 2011!

4 STAR DOODY'S REVIEW!
"The purpose is to present a consistent approach to the difficult and failed airway in all clinical settings. The potentially catastrophic consequences of failed airway management make this a vitally important goal, and the authors have produced a book that teaches how to avoid or minimize these risks....This well written book provides a well integrated approach to the management of difficult airways. It remains readable while being comprehensive. It certainly should be required reading for any clinician involved in airway management."--Doody's Review Service

Edited by two of the field's luminaries, Management of the Difficult and Failed Airway brings together international experts who offer essential, never-before-published insights into the identification and management of difficult and failed airways.

No other text has ever presented the fundamental principles of airway assessment and management, along with a consistent, case-based approach to the difficult and failed airway in all clinical settings: in the field, the emergency department, on the wards and ICU's, and in perioperative settings. Multidisciplinary in scope, Management of the Difficult and Failed Airway encompasses the key areas of anesthesia, hospitalists, intensivists, emergency medicine, and paramedicine.

Features:

  • Skill-building insights that cover all devices and skills required to handle most difficult and failed airways
  • Mnemonics and easy-to-follow algorithms in nearly every chapter
  • Engaging chapter-ending questions and answers
  • Logical four-section organization: devices, techniques, difficult populations, and “practical considerations”
  • Illustrated with color photographs throughout
  • Conversational writing style, with headings phrased as questions commonly raised by physicians and practitioners-in-training
  • The ideal accompaniment to “The Difficult Airway Course,” conducted by the editors
  • Companion DVD with videos of airway techniques and devices
