About the Authors
  • Total intravenous anaesthesia (TIVA) is an innovative alternative to traditional inhalational anaesthesia. Often incorrectly perceived as overly complex, TIVA has numerous advantages over inhalational drugs, such as a lower risk of nausea, less pain and better cognitive recovery. Taking on TIVA is a practical, easy to read and engaging guide to TIVA. It demystifies this important technique and will empower the novice but also support more experienced practitioners. It is a clear step-by-step approach to treating everything from routine elective to paediatric, geriatric, obese and pregnant patients. Pharmacokinetic models, dosage calculations, and the use of TIVA in emergency medicine are also elucidated. Written by international experts in the field with many years of experience both conducting and teaching TIVA, this handbook is an essential resource for experienced and novice anaesthetists alike who want to improve their understanding and confidence with the technique.

    • Focuses on the practical aspects of TIVA rather than excessive emphasis on theory, ensuring readers can translate this knowledge into everyday practice
    • Written by international authors who are highly experienced in both conducting and teaching TIVA, meaning they are familiar with problems that TIVA novices might encounter and can dispel the confusion and misunderstandings
    • A relaxed tone and humorous prose is used to keep readers engaged while demystifying a technique which has an unjustified reputation for complexity. This will empower clinicians to use TIVA as an integral part of their practice, thereby benefiting their patients
