Practice Guidelines in Anesthesia

by SK Malhotra, VP Kumra, B Radhakrishnan, SM Basu

Practice guidelines in the field of anesthesia are well established that form the foundation of recommendations for practicing anesthesiologists at the time of publication. These incorporate the recent advances in current anesthesia practice and training in the field. It is not feasible to include all the topics in one issue, therefore 23 topics have been selected in this first edition of “Practice Guidelines in Anesthesia”, which are presented in 23 chapters. These topics cover the field of anesthesia, pain management and critical care including the basic principles of providing anesthetic services as well as those required in specialized areas. In the field of preoperative preparation, various chapters have been included such as preoperative fasting guidelines and checking the anesthesia equipment. A chapter on infrastructure requirements for operation theater has also been added. The guidelines for perioperative problems include difficult airway management, central venous access, monitored anesthesia care, toxicity of local anesthetics, anaphylactic reactions and blood transfusion therapy. The topics of perioperative fluid therapy and hypothermia are included keeping pediatric patients in mind. A chapter on obstetric anesthesia guidelines has also been added. In the field of pain management, ultrasound- guided nerve blocks and acute pain management have been highlighted. Management of head injury and managing postanesthesia care unit (PACU) have also been discussed.
