The volume deals with the basic aspects of anaesthesia, IC and pain in neonates and children. Topics covered here include anatomy and physiology, strategies to be adopted in the treatment of these patients, the use of "off-label" pharmacological agents within paediatric perioperative medicine. Internationally recognised guidelines aimed at standardising the most important procedures, such as the treatment of hypothermia, central venous catheterisation techniques, or prevention of catheter-induced infections are also discussed. The last part of the volume is more focused on clinical and technical aspects of anaesthesia induction and monitoring. The volume will be a useful update for neonatologists, pediatricians, anesthesiologists in their clinical practice, and an educational tool for residents in these fields.Table of contents Highlights: Anatomy and physiology in neonates and children.- Strategy to manage pediatric patients: the family and the child.- Off-label drugs in pediatric perioperative medicine.- Guidelines and standardization of procedures: The pediatric diffucult airway.- Central venous cannulation techniques.- Prevention of bloodstream infections.- Perioperative Medicine, Intensive Care, Pain: Preoperative evaluation.- Anesthesia induction.- Monitoring the level of anesthesia and sedation in children: an overview.- Locoregional anesthesia in children.- Perioperative fluid management.- Adrenal insufficiency in pediatric critical illness.- Perioperative care in pediatric cardiac surgery.- Acute pain service: clinical assessment and standard of care.- Anesthesia outside the operating room.- Tracheotomy in children.- Infection control in neonates and children.- Pediatric palliative care in the intense care unit.- Chronic pain management: organization, techniques and guidelines.- Subject index.
