About the Authors
  • This is a comprehensive volume on the theories and applications of evidence-based anesthesia and critical care. Arising from the internationally renowned Cochrane Collaboration - the global force in evidence-based medicine - this book will be an authoritative guide for anesthetists. As coordinators of the Cochrane Anaesthesia Review Group, the editors have gathered a formidable set of contributions from around the world. The first half of the book provides an introduction to evidence-based medicine and applies the principles to anesthesia and critical care, including critical appraisal, meta-analysis, interpreting results and controlling bias. The second half shows how to practice this in preoperative evaluation, regional and general anesthesia, postoperative pain therapy, critical care and acute medicine. Medical professionals working in anesthesia and surrounding specialties worldwide will find this book immensely useful.

    • A clear guide to the basic and advanced use of evidence-based methodology
    • Integrates research results into clinically orientated summaries of diagnosis, treatment and patient management
    • Applies evidence-based philosophy to clinical practice in anaesthesia and critical care

    Reviews & endorsements

    'The text is invariably well written and is extremely engaging in style. … I believe that this book will be welcome to researchers and educators in anaesthesia; it represents an extremely thorough and compact drawing-together of the currently available evidence in our specialty and will be a very useful means of rapidly becoming conversant with the evidence base of issues of interest. Medicolegal practitioners will also find the book useful in supporting their assessment of the standard of care and causation.' ESA Newsletter
