Basics of Pediatric Anesthesia
Welcome to the official website for Basics of Pediatric Anesthesia. The iBook version of Basics already has lots of photos and even some videos, but I wasn’t able to put them in the Kindle version or the print edition, so they will be here. The site will continually evolve, so check back often, as I will post case discussions, sample chapters, references, and more pictures and videos as I get them.
Here is the legal disclaimer that appears in every medical textbook or website. I enjoyed writing it about as much as you enjoy reading it, but it’s necessary to make the point that you can’t sue me by claiming that you harmed a patient by doing something you read in this book or on this website:
Anesthesiology is an ever-changing field. Standard safety precautions must be followed, but as new research and clinical experience broaden our knowledge, changes in treatment and drug therapy may become necessary or appropriate. Readers are advised to check the most current product information provided by the manufacturer of each drug to be administered to verify the recommended dose, the method and duration of administration, and contraindications. It is the responsibility of the treating physician, relying on experience and knowledge of the patient, to determine dosages and the best treatment for each individual patient. Neither the publisher nor any editor or contributor assume any liability for any injury and/or damage to persons or property arising from this publication.
