Anesthesia considerations for the oral and maxillofacial surgeon / edited by Matthew Mizukawa, Samuel J. McKenna, Luis G. Vega.

D 617.69 A579

Although office-based anesthesia administration has been essential in the evolution of outpatient surgery, it is becoming more complex as people live longer and with more comorbid diseases. The purpose of this book is to strengthen the margin of safety of office-based anesthesia administration by helping practitioners determine whether the patients they treat are good candidates for office-based anesthesia. This book is organized into three sections. The first section provides a review of the principles of anesthesia, including the pharmacology of anesthetic agents, local anesthesia, patient monitoring, preoperative evaluation, the airway, and management of emergencies and complications. The major organ systems of the body are reviewed in section two, and the most common comorbid conditions that affect these systems are described in terms of their pathophysiology, diagnosis, management, and anesthesia-related considerations. Section three reviews patient groups that warrant special consideration in the administration of office-based anesthesia, such as geriatric, pediatric, pregnant, and obese patients. Spiral-bound and featuring tabs for quick and easy reference, this important book belongs on the shelf of every clinician who provides anesthesia in the office setting.

Industries in 2018 Webinar

In November 2017, The Economist Intelligence Unit published ‘Industries in 2018′, an annual report which assesses how six industry sectors – automotive, consumer goods, retail, financial services, healthcare and telecoms – will develop globally in 2018.

This year’s report highlights how high levels of political risk will hang over investment decisions, despite better economic conditions. It also examines how sweeping changes will challenge traditional business models, mainly driven by technology.

On Thursday February 1st, we will host a follow-up webinar to dive deeper into our analysis and forecasts for each industry, identifying the key strategic business issues to look out for in the year ahead.

DATE:   1st February 2018 (Thursday)
