by Raminder Sehgal, Anjan Trikha

The aim of this book is to focus on the “Yearbook of Anesthesiology-6”. Yearbook of Anesthesiology-6 is the sixth in its series, brought out by the Indian College of Anaesthesiologists (ICA). Topics related to pharmacology include transdermal drug delivery, peripheral opioid receptors, opioid-induced hyperalgesia, pharmacokinetics and pharmacodynamics in obstetrics and present status of dexmedetomidine. Important areas of anesthesia practice such as nontechnical skills and medicolegal aspects have also been covered in detail. Neurological complications of anesthesia and controversies regarding the perioperative use of beta blockers have also been included in this edition. The chapter on management of palliative pain gives an overview of treatment modalities available for the alleviation of such pain and should immensely benefit those in pain practice. Pain issues in children in the perioperative period is another neglected area especially in the peripheral hospitals and the chapter on assessment of pain in children and management strategies of pain in this age group gives a summary of all the options available for improving pain management in children. The chapter on positive end-expiratory pressure (PEEP) and lung recruitment in the intensive care would be very informative to the postgraduate students and those venturing into intensive care.
