Anesthesia and Co-existing Diseases provides a timely, rapid overview of common and uncommon co-morbidities that are encountered in the day-to-day practice of anesthesiology. It provides a guide to the perioperative assessment and anesthetic management of patients with widely prevalent co-morbidities such as hypertension, diabetes, obesity, myocardial ischemia, kidney and liver disease. It concisely outlines priorities for patients with special problems who are undergoing unrelated operative procedures, such as the obstetrical patient, the patient with prior organ transplantation, the adult patient with congenital heart disease, the spinal cord-injured patient, the cancer patient with prior chemotherapy, the critically ill patient or the patient with a psychiatric disorder. It also focuses on specific challenges to the anesthesiologist, such as patients with latex allergy, a history of substance abuse, preoperative use of herbal medications, or who are at risk of malignant hyperthermia.
