"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: Anesthesiaâ„¢ 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 bookâ€™s content and provide you with a solid grasp of the most critical topics in this fast-evolving area.
The bookâ€™s effective organization has been maintained, beginning with the first sectionâ€™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.
