Jeff Steiner Edition 1 Why you need this book: Most introductory anesthesia books are too long and too complex. Where do you begin learning about anesthesia when the basic books are over pages long and weigh four pounds? Even when you do read these books, how will you translate the information into something you can use in the operating room when you are first starting out? Welcome to Anesthesia Made Easy. I wrote this book to introduce you to anesthesiology. It is part education guide to teach you the basics of anesthesia and part survival guide to teach you how to apply these basics while in the operating room.
There is usually overlap in the contributing factors that lead to morbidity and mortality between the health of the patient, the type of surgery being performed and the anesthetic. To understand the relative risk of each contributing factor, consider that the rate of deaths totally attributed to the patient's health is 1: Compare that to the rate of deaths totally attributed to surgical factors 1: These statistics can also be compared to the first such study on mortality in anesthesia from , which reported a rate of death from all causes at 1: Rather than stating a flat rate of morbidity or mortality, many factors are reported as contributing to the relative risk of the procedure and anesthetic combined.
For instance, an operation on a person who is between the ages of 60—79 years old places the patient at 2. Having an ASA score of 3, 4 or 5 places the person at Other variables include age greater than 80 3.
On 14 December the Food and Drug Administration issued a Public Safety Communication warning that "repeated or lengthy use of general anesthetic and sedation drugs during surgeries or procedures in children younger than 3 years or in pregnant women during their third trimester may affect the development of children's brains. The immediate time after anesthesia is called emergence. Emergence from general anesthesia or sedation requires careful monitoring because there is still a risk of complication.
There is a need for airway support in 6. Hypothermia , shivering and confusion are also common in the immediate post-operative period because of the lack of muscle movement and subsequent lack of heat production during the procedure. Postoperative cognitive dysfunction also known as POCD and post-anesthetic confusion is a disturbance in cognition after surgery.
It may also be variably used to describe emergence delirium immediate post-operative confusion and early cognitive dysfunction diminished cognitive function in the first post-operative week. Andrew Hudson, an assistant professor in anesthesiology states, "Recovery from anesthesia is not simply the result of the anesthetic 'wearing off,' but also of the brain finding its way back through a maze of possible activity states to those that allow conscious experience.
Put simply, the brain reboots itself. Long-term POCD is a subtle deterioration in cognitive function, that can last for weeks, months, or longer.
Most commonly, relatives of the person report a lack of attention, memory and loss of interest in activities previously dear to the person such as crosswords. In a similar way, people in the workforce may report an inability to complete tasks at the same speed they could previously.
POCD also appears to occur in non-cardiac surgery. Its causes in non-cardiac surgery are less clear but older age is a risk factor for its occurrence. The first attempts at general anesthesia were probably herbal remedies administered in prehistory. Alcohol is one of the oldest known sedatives and it was used in ancient Mesopotamia thousands of years ago.
The ancient Egyptians had some surgical instruments,   as well as crude analgesics and sedatives, including possibly an extract prepared from the mandrake fruit. Pien Ch'iao , c.
Throughout Europe, Asia, and the Americas a variety of Solanum species containing potent tropane alkaloids were used for anesthesia. In 13th-century Italy, Theodoric Borgognoni used similar mixtures along with opiates to induce unconsciousness, and treatment with the combined alkaloids proved a mainstay of anesthesia until the nineteenth century. Local anesthetics were used in Inca civilization where shamans chewed coca leaves and performed operations on the skull while spitting into the wounds they had inflicted to anesthetize.
It was first used in by Karl Koller , at the suggestion of Sigmund Freud , in eye surgery in Early Arab writings mention anesthesia by inhalation. This idea was the basis of the "soporific sponge" "sleep sponge" , introduced by the Salerno school of medicine in the late twelfth century and by Ugo Borgognoni — in the thirteenth century. The sponge was promoted and described by Ugo's son and fellow surgeon, Theodoric Borgognoni — In this anesthetic method, a sponge was soaked in a dissolved solution of opium, mandragora , hemlock juice, and other substances.
The sponge was then dried and stored; just before surgery the sponge was moistened and then held under the patient's nose. When all went well, the fumes rendered the patient unconscious. The most famous anesthetic, ether , may have been synthesized as early as the 8th century,    but it took many centuries for its anesthetic importance to be appreciated, even though the 16th century physician and polymath Paracelsus noted that chickens made to breathe it not only fell asleep but also felt no pain.
By the early 19th century, ether was being used by humans, but only as a recreational drug. Meanwhile, in , English scientist Joseph Priestley discovered the gas nitrous oxide. Initially, people thought this gas to be lethal, even in small doses, like some other nitrogen oxides. However, in , British chemist and inventor Humphry Davy decided to find out by experimenting on himself. To his astonishment he found that nitrous oxide made him laugh, so he nicknamed it "laughing gas".
American physician Crawford W. Long noticed that his friends felt no pain when they injured themselves while staggering around under the influence of diethyl ether.
He immediately thought of its potential in surgery. Conveniently, a participant in one of those "ether frolics", a student named James Venable, had two small tumors he wanted excised. But fearing the pain of surgery, Venable kept putting the operation off. Hence, Long suggested that he have his operation while under the influence of ether. Venable agreed, and on 30 March he underwent a painless operation.
However, Long did not announce his discovery until Horace Wells conducted the first public demonstration of the inhalational anesthetic at the Massachusetts General Hospital in Boston in However, the nitrous oxide was improperly administered and the patient cried out in pain.
This occurred in the surgical amphitheater now called the Ether Dome. The previously skeptical Warren was impressed and stated, "Gentlemen, this is no humbug.
Morton at first attempted to hide the actual nature of his anesthetic substance, referring to it as Letheon. He received a US patent for his substance, but news of the successful anesthetic spread quickly by late Respected surgeons in Europe including Liston , Dieffenbach , Pirogov , and Syme quickly undertook numerous operations with ether. This was the first case of an operator-anesthetist.
Scott used ether for a surgical procedure. Drawbacks with ether such as excessive vomiting and its explosive flammability led to its replacement in England with chloroform. In , Dr Robert Mortimer Glover in London discovered the anaesthetic qualities of chloroform on laboratory animals. During the birth itself, chloroform met all the Queen's expectations; she stated it was "delightful beyond measure".
This led to many deaths from the use of chloroform that with hindsight might have been preventable. The first fatality directly attributed to chloroform anesthesia was recorded on 28 January after the death of Hannah Greener. The first comprehensive medical textbook on the subject, Anesthesia , was authored in by anesthesiologist Dr. James Tayloe Gwathmey and the chemist Dr. Charles Baskerville.
Of these first famous anesthetics, only nitrous oxide is still widely used today, with chloroform and ether having been replaced by safer but sometimes more expensive general anesthetics , and cocaine by more effective local anesthetics with less abuse potential. Almost all healthcare providers use anesthetic drugs to some degree, but most health professions have their own field of specialists in the field including medicine, nursing and dentistry.
Doctors specializing in anaesthesiology , including perioperative care, development of an anesthetic plan, and the administration of anesthetics are known in the US as anesthesiologists and in the UK, Canada, Australia, and NZ as anaesthetists or anaesthesiologists. Nurse anesthetists also administer anesthesia in nations.
There are many circumstances when anesthesia needs to be altered for special circumstances due to the procedure such as in cardiac surgery , cardiothoracic anesthesiology or neurosurgery , the patient such as in pediatric anesthesia , geriatric , bariatric or obstetrical anesthesia or special circumstances such as in trauma , prehospital care , robotic surgery or extreme environments.

The range of topics is broad, including perioperative statin use, off-pump cardiac surgery, muscular dystrophies, complications of neuraxial blockade, mitochondrial disease, and awareness, to name a few. It is more likely, perhaps, to appeal to general anaesthetists and trainees, rather than to those working in the subspecialities.
Many of the contributors are US-based, with several others working, not surprisingly, in Cork, Ireland the home of at least two of the editors. A US-style of practice is occasionally apparent, although not such as to undermine its broader relevance. Abdominal paracentesis in trauma, pulmonary artery catheters in bariatric surgery, and use of aprotinin are such examples.
Topical issues are addressed, such as sugammadex, hypertonic saline, and cuffed tracheal tubes in paediatrics.
