Provide your students with the knowledge and skills needed for clinical anesthesia practice! Written specifically for nurse anesthetists, Nurse Anesthesia, 7th Edition provides a solid foundation in scientific principles and evidence-based practice. Coverage includes a review of pharmacology, pharmacokinetics and pharmacodynamics, drug receptor concepts, intravenous agents, neuromuscular blocking agents, and more, followed by a discussion of anesthesia equipment and clinical monitoring, preoperative preparation of the patient, and the use of anesthesia for a variety of surgical procedures. Not only does this text help students prepare for certification, it also provides a key reference for CRNAs to use in daily practice.

    • Updated information on pharmacology includes pharmacokinetics, drug delivery systems, opiate antagonists, and key induction drugs.
    • Interactions with other anesthetic agents are integrated where appropriate, along with other important considerations.
    • Overview of basic science provides a thorough basis for understanding nurse anesthesia.
    • Information on Joint Commission (TJC) standards covers monitoring and administering moderate sedation/analgesia, also adding coverage of patient safety, monitoring, and pharmacology.
    • More than 800 full-color photos and illustrations depict anatomy, procedures, concepts, and equipment.
    • Logical organization of the text covers basic principles first, and builds on those with individual chapters for each surgical specialty.
    • More than 800 tables and boxes summarize essential information in a quick, easy-to-reference format.
    • UNIQUE! Expert CRNA authors provide the most up-to-date clinical information for CRNAs to use in daily practice.
    • Handy references make it quick and easy to find the latest and most important research in the field.
    • NEW! Updated content reflects the latest changes in the industry.
    • NEW! Two new chapters include Crisis Resource Management and Patient Safety and Infection Control and Prevention.
