Anaesthesia in Laparoscopic Surgery

by Jayashree Sood, Anil Kumar Jain

The past decade has witnessed an immense and spectacular development in the field of laparoscopic surgery and anaesthesia both in terms of technical development and the better knowledge regarding the management of the patients. The spectrum of laparoscopic surgery has now been extended from simple abdominal surgery to complex thoracic surgery. The laparoscopic surgery is now performed in all types of patients, i. e. neonate, pregnant, morbidly obese, trauma victims and other patients with co-morbid medical condition. The introduction of laparoscopy and carboperitoneum result in an altered physiologic milieu in the patient intraoperatively, which leads to altered responses that need to be recognized and managed by the supervising anaesthesiologist. Thus, the advent of laparoscopy has presented anaesthesiologists with a novel, yet peculiar, set of patient circumstances and challenges that need to be addressed and managed for optimal patient outcomes. Anaesthesia in Laparoscopic Surgery focusses on all the issues involved in laparoscopy and highlights the pathophysiology of pneumoperitoneum. This book is intended as a resource for anaesthesiologists, both in practice and training, as well as other healthcare professionals involved in laparoscopic surgery. Though the term ‘laparoscopy’ was initially coined for the examination of the abdominal organs, nowadays, it is loosely used for extraperitoneal procedures (TEP inguinal hernia repair) as well as extra-abdominal procedures such as thoracoscopy.
