Summary

The anesthetic management of patients undergoing cardiac surgery involves meticulous preparation and persistent vigilance. In this chapter, we will discuss the general anesthetic principles that apply to all cardiac surgical procedures in the preoperative, intraoperative, and early postoperative phases. By doing so, we aim to provide a standard approach and rationale for monitoring and managing complex cardiac surgical patients. We will then conclude by highlighting anesthetic considerations that are unique to specific types of cardiac procedures.
