Completely revised and updated to reflect the latest developments in the field, this second edition of Brendan Finucane’s indispensable Complications of Regional Anesthesia*, is an essential text for all anesthesiologists and nurse anesthetists who seek advice on avoiding some of the most common and, more importantly, preventable complications of regional anesthesia and pain medicine. Chapters cover a variety of neurologic complications and pain management issues. Critically important both to patient care and practice management are the chapters focusing on safety and best practice guidelines and the compendium of outcome studies that compare regional and general anesthesia. As in the first edition, the authorship provides an international perspective by including a section on morbidity studies featuring contributions from practitioners in the United States, Canada, Scandinavia, and France. Along with exploring the key issues and challenges a practitioner may face, the book includes an invaluable chapter addressing the important topic of the medical legal aspects of regional anesthesia. With its concise clinical focus, numerous tables and illustrations, and extensive references, this up-to-the minute reference work will prove to be an invaluable tool for the practitioner in ensuring that patients receive the highest quality care.Table of contents An historical perspective on complications of regional anesthesia.- Regional anesthesia safety.- Outcome studies comparing regional and general anesthesia.- Complications of spinal anesthesia.- Complications of epidural anesthesia.- Complications of ophthalmic anesthesia.- Complications of brachial plexus anesthesia.- Complications of intercostals, paravertebral and interpleural blocks.- Peripheral nerve injury following regional anesthesia.- Complications of intravenous regional anesthesia.- Complications of pediatric regional anesthesia.- Complications of obstetric anesthesia.- Complications of catheter techniques.- Regional anesthesia complications related to acute pain therapy.- Regional anesthesia complications related to chronic pain and cancer therapy.- Major neurologic injury following regional anesthesia.- Regional anesthesia and infection.- Regional anesthesia in the presence of neurologic disease.- Evaluation of neurologic injury following regional anesthesia.- Local anesthetic toxicity.- Regional anesthesia in anesthetized patients.- Closed claims analyses of regional anesthesia complications.- Medicolegal aspects of regional anesthesia.- Case studies of regional anesthesia complications.- Prevention of regional anesthesia complications.- Practice guidelines in regional anesthesia.
