Book description

Fully updated and expanded, the second edition of Clinical Fluid Therapy in the Perioperative Setting brings together the world's leading experts in fluid management to explain what you should know when providing infusion fluids to surgical and critical care patients. Current evidence-based knowledge, essential basic science, and modern clinical practice are explained in 34 focused and authoritative chapters. New chapters cover topics such as burn injury, monitoring of the microcirculation, the glycocalyx layer, intensive care, trauma, transplantations, and adverse effects of infusion fluids. Each chapter begins with an abstract, providing a quick overview of the topic, followed by detailed clinical and pre-clinical guidance. Together, the chapters guide the reader in the use of fluid therapy in all aspects of perioperative patient care. Edited by Robert G. Hahn, a clinical anesthesiologist and highly experienced researcher in fluid therapy, this is essential reading for all anesthesiologists, intensivists, and surgeons.


'We recommend this second edition not only for the more experienced clinician, but also for the young resident because basic and advanced concepts are well organized and explained. Indeed, the greatest strength of this book is presenting complex ideas in a simple, understandable manner. The second edition of Clinical Fluid Therapy in the Perioperative Setting, edited byRobert Hahn, provides a constructive addition to current fluid management literature.'

'This second edition of Hanh’s textbook serves as a worthy update to the original edition, bringing both new and refreshed content that is relevant to trainees and practicing physicians alike. The book serves as a great teaching tool to expand on topics that may be too detailed to cover adequately during bedside teaching sessions. Thus, it can easily find itself at home on the shelf with other books typically aimed at those who administer fluids, including anesthesiologists, intensivists, surgeons, emergency medicine physicians, and other health care providers who work and train in these areas.'
