Updated and expanded, this comprehensive new edition captures the considerable evolution in the anesthetic management of patients
requiring anesthesia for non-cardiac intrathoracic diagnostic and therapeutic procedures. Major advances addressed include
the expanded role of ultrasound beyond trans-esophageal echocardiography, the role of extra-corporeal membrane oxygenation
in thoracic anesthesia, and postoperative pain management for thoracic surgery. Chapters are authored by prominent anesthesiologists
and feature cases commonly encountered in clinical practice. Authoritative and the leading text in the field, this book will
serve as an indispensible guide to practitioners of thoracic anesthesia at all levels.
