Clinical Anesthesia by Paul G Barash covers the full spectrum of clinical issues and options in anesthesiology, providing insightful coverage of pharmacology, physiology, co-existing diseases, and surgical procedures. This classic clinical reference brings the very latest essential knowledge in the field, equipping the anesthesiologists to effectively apply today's standards of care and make optimal clinical decisions for their patients. Further, the South Asian Edition addresses the challenges faced by students of South Asian countries due to variation in diseases, their patterns, and availability of the resources. Highlights of South Asian Edition The Key Points have been reorganized in each chapter into “must know” and “desirable to know” to highlight the most essential information. Considering the rapid increase in the incidence of malignancy, two new chapters have been added: - Chapter on palliative medicine (Chapter 60, Palliative Medicine) which is coming up in India in a big way since anesthesiologists have become an integral part of the Palliative Care team in providing care to the patients. - Chapter on oncoanesthesiology (Chapter 61, Anesthesia for Cancer Surgeries) which is usually not treated as a separate chapter in Anesthesiology books. This chapter discusses the difference in care of oncology patient, anesthesia for brachytherapy, chemotherapy and its implications, enhanced recovery after anesthesia, opioid and cancer recurrence, team approach, etc. Anesthesia for diseases prevalent in South Asia has been given special emphasis.
