Top Essentials of Neuroanesthesia and Neurointensive Care. By Arun K. Gupta, M. Gelb, M. Philadelphia, Saunders Elsevier, Pages: In the operating room, our capacity to exacerbate brain injury, by contrast, is almost unlimited. In elucidating these principles in a thorough but concise fashion, the book is a success. I found the chapters to be concise, easy to read, and informative.
Each chapter has a summary of key points and suggestions for further reading. The graphics were clear, of high quality, and didactic. There was an excellent breadth in terms of subject matter basic physiology and clinical practice , clinical contexts operating room, intensive care unit, and interventional suite , and patient populations adult, pediatric, and obstetric.
Furthermore, I found the incorporation of perspectives from neurosurgery, neuroradiology, and neurology to be valuable. As stated in the preface, the book will likely be of most value to the anesthesiology resident. I would, however, recommend this as an excellent review for a beginning fellow or a handy reference for the anesthesia provider who does not routinely practice neuroanesthesia.
The book could also serve as an introductory text for interested specialists in related fields. The appendices are noteworthy. This appendix guides the reader through the use of search engines, the electronic acquisition of articles, and the safeguarding of electronic information. It also provides a list of electronic resources related to neuroanesthesia. The second appendix describes four common clinical scenarios in neuroanesthesia—supratentorial craniotomy, neurotrauma, subarachnoid hemorrhage, and cervical spine injury.
These cases serve to integrate previously discussed information in a clinically relevant way. Both appendices should be very helpful for the trainee, and both reflect the didactic spirit of the book.
One suggestion for the next edition would be to improve internal consistency. The editors state in the preface that a certain degree of overlap is inevitable, and that a repetition of facts is useful. I would agree, but conflicting data may be especially confusing for trainees.
There are other discrepancies earlier in the text compare, for example, the first paragraph on page 13 to that on page These relatively minor opportunities for improvement do not significantly affect the overall quality of the book. As a practicing neuroanesthesiologist and neurointensivist, I think the book does an excellent job of introducing the reader to the compelling physiology and clinical diversity involved in the perioperative care of the neurologic patient. The editors and authors are to be commended for their valuable contribution to the field.
