Part of the popular Core Topics series, this book provides a practical guide to pre-operative assessment for consultants and trainee anaesthetists.
Chapters cover comprehensive evidence-based guidance for assessing and managing patients with particular conditions, as well as perioperative risk stratification and challenges of pre-assessment. The chapters have been written by specialists in the respective clinical fields, while all content has been edited by anaesthetists to assure it is relevant and accessible to the anaesthetist in the everyday pre-operative clinic. Written specifically for anaesthetists, this resource will allow every reader to contribute effectively in a multidisciplinary approach when assessing and risk stratifying patients to ensure that they are optimised before surgery.
