This up-to-date, revised edition on ultrasound in anesthesia has now been expanded to cover the important areas of pain management and critical care, and includes the new Royal College of Anaesthetists' guidelines for using ultrasound in anesthesia and intensive care. A comprehensive, practical guide, it explains the benefits of ultrasound for all essential practices, ranging from vascular access and local anesthetic blocks in adults and children, to cardiac assessment, trauma and intensive care practice, pain management and more. Additional resources include over 100 still and video clips, allowing the reader to view ultrasound sequences while reading the relevant chapter. Written by ultrasound experts, this is the perfect introductory text for medical consultants and any trainee or medical student who needs a step-by-step guide to how ultrasound works, how to use it themselves, how to get the best images and when to ask a sonographer for help.Biographie de l'auteur :
