           It is estimated that 1.5 million infants undergo surgery and anesthesia in the USA each year. However, there are serious concerns within the pediatric anesthesia community regarding the safety of anaesthesia in infants and children. There is mounting evidence from animal studies that anesthetics in common clinical use are neurotoxic to the developing brain and cause long-term neurobehavioral abnormalities.

            Essentials of Anesthesia for Infants and Neonates provides a comprehensive guide to the special needs of infants undergoing anesthesia. It focuses on the first year of life, the time when anesthesia mortality and morbidity is highest. Chapters are illustrated in color throughout, and include sections on newborn physiology for anesthetic management, specific procedures, pain management, and topics such as regional anesthesia and sedation.

           - Delivers comprehensive practical information on techniques to administer neonatal and infant anesthesia
           - Focuses in on the youngest, most fragile patients, allowing readers to tailor their anesthetics to this age group
           - Reviews and critiques anesthetic neurotoxicity in young children, discussing methods to limit exposure to neurotoxic agents
