Descriptif détaillé : Clinical Anesthesia, Near Misses and Lessons Learned
Although near-miss situations are relatively rare in anesthesiology, it is essential to know how to respond if the situation arises. This collection of actual cases, compiled from the author’s 30+ years practice in major metropolitan hospitals in the US, Sweden and South Africa, is an excellent review of potential problems and solutions all anesthesiologists should be familiar with. The cases are succinct, with the problem and a solution described, then concluded by a retrospective analysis that examines whether the solution used was actually the best (or only) choice, or if other solutions might provide equally satisfactory outcomes. Also included in the analyses are tips to help avoid the problem altogether, when possible. This book is an excellent review for the ABA oral exam and is an easy and practical way to prepare for the unexpected in the daily practice of clinical anesthesia.
