9780071623469: Management of the Difficult and Failed Airway, Second Edition

Meet the clinical challenge of the difficult and failed airway with this updated full-color guide

Includes DVD with airway techniques!

"This beautifully illustrated and extensively referenced textbook provides a comprehensive review of the available options for airway management....For the busy clinician, this book provides the most up-to-date review available of the many innovations that have been introduced in the past 10 years."--Steven L. Shafer, MD, Columbia University

Written by the founders of The Difficult Airway Course: Anesthesia™ and utilizing an instructive case-based approach, this text/DVD presents all of the leading-edge principles, tools, and procedures of airway assessment and management. The scope of the book encompasses the many airway devices that have been developed since the publication of the first edition, many of which have the potential to markedly enhance airway management.

Extensively revised and updated, the second edition of Management of the Difficult and Failed Airway emphasizes how airway management is context-sensitive: included are strategies for treating patients in a range of settings, from prehospital care to the ER, as well as proven techniques for special patient populations. In addition, new chapters have been added to further refresh the book’s content and provide you with a solid grasp of the most critical topics in this fast-evolving area.

The book’s effective organization has been maintained, beginning with the first section’s focus on the basic foundations of difficult and failed airway management. The second section reviews must-know airway devices and techniques, while the third part of the text introduces case studies that thoroughly examine the application of these techniques in complex clinical situations. A final section covers the practical considerations, such as difficult airway carts and teaching and simulation in airway management.

FEATURES

  • Skill-building, case-based approach highlights the right tools and techniques for stabilizing the patient, plus important safety precautions relevant to the clinical setting
  • New “context-sensitive” focus links airway techniques to specific clinical environments, including airway cases in prehospital care, the emergency department, the critical care unit, and the operating room
  • Essential new chapters cover the fundamental principles of bag-mask-ventilation, single lung ventilation using double lumen tubes, and airway management in austere environments, in addition to airway education and simulation
  • Mnemonics, easy-to-follow algorithms, and alternative strategies (Plan A, Plan B, etc.) in every chapter reinforce pivotal concepts
  • Chapter-ending questions offer effective self-assessment
  • Accompanying DVD with instructive video visually explains common procedures in a learn-as-you-go style
