About this title:
The original Ultrasound in Anesthesia has now been updated and expanded to cover the important areas of pain management and critical care, and now includes the new Royal College of Anaesthetists' guidelines for using ultrasound in anaesthesia and intensive care.
A comprehensive, practical guide, it explains the benefits of ultrasound for all essential practices, ranging from vascular access and local anaesthetic blocks in adults and children, to cardiac assessment, trauma and intensive care practice, pain management and more. Additional resources include more than one hundred still- and video-clips, allowing the reader to view ultrasound sequences while reading the relevant chapter.
- Provides a practical approach to the use of ultrasound, enabling medical consultants as well as medical trainees to use ultrasound in their own practice
- Heavily illustrated with both still and video clips, to help the reader to recognize normal and abnormal patterns in the tissue being examined, and to train eye-hand skills required for ultrasound usage
- Includes diagrams to aid pattern recognition of the relevant anatomical features
Written by ultrasound experts, this is the perfect introductory text for medical consultants and any trainee or medical students who need a step-by-step guide to:
- How ultrasound works
- How to use it themselves
- How to get the best images
- When to ask a sonographer for help
