Anaesthesia for ophthalmic surgery
Anaesthesia for ophthalmic surgery can in certain circumstances stretch the confidence of the most fully trained and skilled anesthesiologist. The changing patterns of eye surgery and vitreoretinal surgery, and the increased interest in day-case surgery dictates that anesthesiologists should acquaint themselves with various anesthetic techniques, including local anesthesia for ophthalmic surgery. The authors of this book have been interested in anesthesia for ophthalmic surgery for many years. Drawing on their considerable personal experience, they present a sufficiently comprehensive text for the book to be a reference source for the trainee and a practical manual for those interested in and practicing ophthalmic anaesthesia. The book contains nineteen well-referenced chapters covering detailed peri-operative management of the ophthalmic patient who is undergoing either general or local anesthesia. It also contains a short glossary which non-ophthalmologists will find useful. The chapter on the anatomy and physiology of the eye contain information not usually included in standard textbooks of anaesthesia. Some chapters, such as "Systemic effects of drugs used for ophthalmic surgery" and "The eye as a mirror of disease" are extended to provide medicine and pharmacology.
