Quick Overview
The book begins with a page on historical milestones in pediatric anesthesia.
In the first section of “Basic Principles”, along with anatomical growth and physiological characteristics at various stages of development and essentials of pharmacology, we have intentionally included chapters on pediatric chest
X-ray and electrocardiogram. Senior pediatric cardiologists and radiologists have comprehensively described normal electrocardiogram and chest radiographs respectively, along with illustrations in different clinical scenarios.
In the second section of “Anesthetic Management” the entire process of anesthetizing a child, from the evaluation of physical status, along with anesthesia techniques and monitoring, fluid and transfusion therapy, various methods of pain management, including regional techniques, ventilation strategies are compiled in detail. Anesthesiologist’s role in the assessment and management of difficult airway is described with excellent illustrations.
In the third section of “Subspecialty Anesthesia”, the authors have detailed current perspectives of anesthetic management in different surgical branches along with chapters devoted to anesthesia in remote locations and also in the neonate for various surgical procedures. All the chapters bring us up-to-date on safe, effective and efficient perioperative practices.
The fourth section on “Special Problems and Situations” comprises of a chapter dealing with management of common medical conditions anesthesiologists face in day-to-day practice written by pediatricians, and a chapter on anesthetic management of some rare and some not so rare conditions needing special considerations. This section also includes an important chapter on cardiopulmonary resuscitation in keeping with the AHA 2015 guidelines. Pediatric anesthesiologists should also be aware of all types of complications during anesthesia, and so a separate chapter is devoted to complications during anesthesia.
The fifth section on “Anesthetic Techniques” includes a chapter on vascular access describing indications, safe techniques and complications and a chapter on ultrasound-guided regional blocks with good compilation of appropriate pictures.

The sixth section on “Notes on Allied Topics” offers pertinent information on safety and quality, ethical issues and utility of simulation in pediatric anesthesia.
The “Appendices” are intended to provide an information capsule on syndromes, drug dosing guide, and handy formulae and tables.
