This pocket book succinctly describes 215 common, serious errors made by attendings, residents, fellows, CRNAs, and practicing anesthesiologists in the practice of anesthesia and offers practical, easy-to-remember tips for avoiding these errors.
Each common anesthesia error is described in a quick-reading one-page entry that includes a brief clinical scenario, a short review of the relevant physiology and/or pharmacology, and tips on how to avoid or resolve the problem. Illustrations are included where appropriate. The book also includes important chapters on human factors, legal issues, CPT coding, and how to select a practice and can easily be read immediately before the start of a rotation or used for quick reference.
