This volume in The Requisites in Anesthesiology Series concisely presents all of the knowledge essential to the safe practice of ambulatory anesthesia. It covers anesthetic agents and adjunctive techniques that provide rapid recovery with fewer side effects, all the while maintaining the same high safety standards we have come to expect in a hospital operating room suite. You'll find coverage of everything from patient selection to administration of anesthesia outside the typical operating room setting to cost-effective practice. Case studies in each chapter demonstrate the clinical relevance of the material and test your comprehension.
