Paediatric Anaesthetic Emergency Data Manual (Paeds Manual)
This compact book contains colour coded sections of checklists and flow charts for the immediate management of a wide range of paediatric situations including resuscitation, trauma, anaesthetic and medical emergencies. The ‘age-by-page’ section consists of tables of commonly used anaesthetic and resuscitation drugs, pre-calculated for a specific weight within the WHO weight range, for that specific age. Each page includes medication doses, airway equipment including size of endotracheal tubes, laryngeal masks and airway adjuncts, resuscitation fluids including blood products and mannitol and stabilisation infusions such as sedatives and inotropes for ongoing management of the patient. In addition to the emergency guideline sections, the anaesthetic management of 50 common syndromes and congenital conditions are included and the drug formulary provides a convenient reference section of doses and indications of common paediatric medications. An essential quick-reference handbook for anaesthetists, intensive care and emergency department physicians, and trainees.
