Product Description


"This book is a fantastic quick reference to possible anesthetic implications for a specific syndrome and the implication need not be limited to practices that care solely for children...This book is an incredibly ambitious undertaking by the authors who are to be commended on creating a very helpful new resource."--Anesthesia & Analgesia (Anesthesia & Analgesia 2007-02-01)

I received this book from one of my attendings during my fellowship (Thank you Dr Rymer :) ) and it has been very useful through the years. I like this better than the Baum book which my office mate uses. Has useful anesthetic considerations and also does give some detail as to the pathophysiology of the syndrome. Definitely covers the vast majority of syndromes that you may have the misfortune of running in to!
