Summaries
Main Description
Medical handbooks rarely provide advice on what to do when your patient has to undergo surgery. Similarly surgical handbooks focus on conditions that need surgery, and the main problems caused by that surgery. In contrast,Perioperative Medicineis a concise, practical text that gives junior doctors the guidance that they need to cope with medical problems in surgical patients that might occur early in pre-assessment clinic, the night before surgery, out-of-hours or on the wards post-operatively. It is an invaluable guide to covering surgical patients, and appeals to a wide readership, including junior surgical doctors, medical doctors covering surgical acute admissions, and members of the hospital-at-night teams. It will also appeal to medical students interested in learning more about the practical management of patients, and all those who need to know how to sort out common, important and occasionally life threatening "non-surgical" conditions that frequently happen in surgical patients, such as heart attacks, strokes and asthma. This handbook is an updated version of the handbook published in 2000 in the Oxford Pocket Medicine series, entitled Peri-operative medicine - managing surgical patients with medical problems. This new edition is fully revised and is written as a guide for trainees in surgery (and its sub-disciplines) dealing with day-to-day medical problems arising in surgical patients. It covers all the fundamentals of the medical care of surgical patients, with new sections on surgical oncology, theatre etiquette, and planning lists, with most text rewritten to reflect new headings and recent guidelines.

Main Description
Medical handbooks don't often tell you what to do when the patient with the medical problem is either supposed to be having an operation, or has just had one. Surgical handbooks tend to just describe conditions that need surgery, and the main problems caused by the surgery. In contrast, Peri-operative Medicine is a concise, practical text that gives junior doctors the guidance that they need to cope with medical problems in surgical patientsearly in pre-assessment clinic, the night before surgery and out-of-hours on the wards post-operatively. It is an invaluable guide to covering surgical patients, and appeals to a wide readership, all junior surgical doctors (those below consultant grade), medical doctors covering surgical acuteadmissions, members of the hospital-at-night teams and medical students interested in learning more about the practical management of patients, and all those who need to know how to sort out common, important and occasionally life threatening "non-surgical" conditions that frequently happen in surgical patients, such as heart attacks, strokes and asthma.
