"Paediatric patients with neurological problems present a set of inherent challenges because of their developing and maturing neurological and physiological status, and require special anaesthetic considerations. To provide optimal neuroanaesthesia care, the anaesthesiologist must have a comprehensive knowledge on paediatric neuroanaesthesia. However, there is no comprehensive book available on the subject, and Paediatric Neuroanaesthesia aims to fill this gap.
With contributions from 60 national and international experts, this state-of-art and comprehensive reference work brings together a unique combination of basic sciences (neuroanatomy, neurophysiology, and neuropharmacology) and special considerations such as hydrocephalus, co-existing cardiac problems, and neuromuscular diseases. The text is supported with clinical procedural video tutorials, which makes it an engaging and invaluable up-to-date work suitable for trainees and practitioners in paediatric neuroanaesthesia.
