Summary and Info
One major by-product of the aging baby-boom generation is a surging interest in cosmetic surgery. Although procedures like facelifts and abdominoplasties (the 'tummy-tuck') are considered minimally invasive, the anesthetic protocols and regimens here are often overly complex and unnecessarily toxic. This reference will focus on all of the procedures that the anesthesiologist needs to be proficient in to adequately care for this group of patients. Perioperative care and pain management will be covered for the full spectrum of operations, and there will be special emphasis on level-of-consciousness monitoring of these patients Propofol ketamine with bispectral index (BIS) monitoring / Barry L.
