This is a concise, up-to-date reference on anesthesia for urological surgery. Urological anesthesia is not recognized as a specialty, and a majority of anesthesiologists and nurse anesthetists will provide anesthesia for these patients. Advances in urological procedures, the advent of treatment of patients with strong anticoagulant and antiplatelet medications, and the demographics of urology patients (many of whom are young or elderly) present challenges for the anesthesiologist and have necessitated changes in anesthesia practice. The last volume on this topic was published in 2000, and the time is right for a fresh presentation of contemporary expertise in anesthesia for urological surgery.

The book provides a brief review of renal physiology and pharmacology then addresses anesthesia for each major group of urological procedures (e.g., endoscopic, office-based, laparoscopic and robotic, nephrolithotripsy, renal transplantation, etc.) and in special populations, including the geriatric patient, the pediatric patient, and the pregnant patient. Separate chapters discuss the unique challenges of positioning the patient, and of managing the patient taking anticoagulant and antiplatelet medication, and the chapter on pain management addresses common and important perioperative concerns.

"This brilliantly assembled expert compendium provides a much-needed guide for the practical application of anesthesiology in medical practice in the most bereft underdeveloped and violence-afflicted regions of the globe." -Seymour Topping, Professor Emeritus of International Journalism, Columbia University This is a comprehensive guide to the role of anesthesiologists in medical missions. In their capacity as perioperative physicians, anesthesiologists improve the safety and efficacy of surgical interventions for underserved patients in low- and middle-income countries around the world. Contributions from international experts in global health provide essential historical context, practical medical and surgical considerations for planning missions, and scenarios of "on the ground" implementation of care. The final section considers anesthesiology education in the context of global health. This is an encompassing and eye-opening resource for trainees and physicians considering participating in a medical mission and students and faculty of global health.

Comprehensive Guide to Education in Anesthesia is the first single-source volume on the current practice of teaching and learning in this specialty which has long been at the forefront of innovation in medical education. It is edited by one of the great anesthesiology educators in the United States and brings together contributions from leading educators from across the US covering all aspects of anesthesiology education, from medical school and post-graduate training to board certification and continuing medical education.

Topics include best educational practices, closed claim analysis, giving feedback to superiors, residency and fellowship training and requirements, maintenance of certification, the role of simulation, interacting with other specialties, community and global outreach, and more. The book conveys the unique nature of the specialty and is aimed at medical students contemplating a career in anesthesiology, residents and fellows, educators, and administrators.

The primary mission of the medical school is to create new doctors. Once the medical student has received his or her doctorate, the medical school's interest in, and acceptance of, responsibility for the continued professional development of the physician ceases almost entirely. Yet, with scientific advances in medicine increasing exponentially and the inevitable erosion of memory with time, teachings from our schools of medicine become increasingly irrelevant, forgotten, or both. To maintain competence, the physician must continuously re-educate him- or herself. CME-Continuing Medical Education-will probably never attain the status of the medical school's degree-granting undergraduate program, but medical schools and their faculties must recognize their responsibility, not creating competent physicians but also for maintaining that com only for petence. is the product of a Continuing Medical Education program This volume initiated by the Department of Anesthesiology at the Albert Einstein Col lege of Medicine/Montefiore Medical Center. Our Department of Anes thesiology has historically been, and continues to be, unusually active in post-doctoral education through regional and national conferences and symposia. We recognized, however, that programs that bring physicians together in one location for a limited menu of lectures, questions, and discussion reach only a fraction of the potential audience of anesthesiolo gists. Such programs, as valuable as they are, by their very structure exclude more anesthesiologists than they include."

CME-Continuing Medical Education-will probably never attain the status of the medical school's degree-granting undergraduate program, but medical schools and their faculties must recognize their responsibil ity, not only for creating competent physicians but also for maintaining that competence. With these words I introduced the first volume of Preanesthetic Assessment in 1986. The series was a product of a Continuing Medical Education program initiated by the Department of Anesthesiology, Albert Einstein College of Medicine/Montefiore Medical Center. Controversy continues to exist over the lasting educational value of conferences that bring physicians together. Moreover, because of time or financial con straints, only a small number of anesthesiologists are able to attend seminars on a frequent basis. By producing a monthly, current, clinical series in conjunction with Anesthesiology News over these 4 years, we have been able to make state-of-the-art analyses available to all anesthesiologists."
