Orthopedic Anesthesia

      In designing a textbook specific to the anesthetic management of patients undergoing orthopedic surgical procedures, one encounters the dilemma that relatively few anesthetic problems are specific to orthopedic practice. Therefore, a decision must be made either to create a text that covers a wide range of issues or to confine the subject matter to the few orthopedic problems that present unique anesthetic challenges. Dr. Wedel chose the former alternative. In light of the short (400-page) format of this subspecialty text, discussions are fairly basic. Thus, some parts of this work will be more valuable to residents in first- and second-year clinical anesthesia than to more advanced trainees in anesthesia or practitioners.
