Fear of pain is the number one reason people give for not making regular visits to the dentist. At the same time, a majority of dentists report experiencing anesthesia-related problems during restorative dental procedures. If dentists are able to provide painless treatment, patient compliance and satisfaction are likely to improve. Pulpal anesthesia is a vital part of the delivery of dental care for restorative dentists and endodontists. Administration of local anesthesia is invariably the first procedure they perform and it affects everything they do thereafter. If the patient is not adequately anesthetized, difficulties inevitably arise. This book will help you successfully anesthetize your patients using the newest technology and drugs available. It presents the rationale, advantages, and limitations of the various anesthetic agents and routes of administration. A special emphasis is placed on supplemental anesthetic techniques that are essential to the practice of dentistry.

Ultrasonographic guidance for regional anaesthetic blocks is an innovative technique that allows for the direct visualization of nerves, adjacent structures and the position of the needle, as well as for the precise observation of the spread of local anaesthetic. The advantages of the technique allow for the exact administration of moderate volumes of local anaesthetic, reducing the risk of complications. Written by a physician with 16 years' experience in ultrasound-guided regional anaesthesia, this second edition of the well-received practical handbook provides a concise summary of the basics of ultrasound technology and the most recent techniques in the use of ultrasound to guide peripheral nerve blocks, focusing specifically on ultrasound-guided peripheral nerve block techniques. All chapters have been carefully revised to provide the most recent knowledge in the topic of ultrasound in regional anaesthesia. A strong focus has still been attached on anatomical descriptions and subsequent practical implementations. Paediatric applications are now included in this new edition to aid paediatric anaesthesiologists, as well as the incorporation of neuraxial techniques to complete the entire topic. With illustrated colour images throughout, this book is highly relevant to anaesthesiologists and pain specialists with an interest in regional anaesthesia.

Anaesthesia for ophthalmic surgery can in certain circumstances stretch the confidence of the most fully trained and skilled anesthesiologist. The changing patterns of eye surgery and vitreoretinal surgery, and the increased interest in day-case surgery dictates that anesthesiologists should acquaint themselves with various anesthetic techniques, including local anesthesia for ophthalmic surgery. The authors of this book have been interested in anesthesia for ophthalmic surgery for many years. Drawing on their considerable personal experience, they present a sufficiently comprehensive text for the book to be a reference source for the trainee and a practical manual for those interested in and practicing ophthalmic anaesthesia. The book contains nineteen well-referenced chapters covering detailed peri-operative management of the ophthalmic patient who is undergoing either general or local anesthesia. It also contains a short glossary which non-ophthalmologists will find useful. The chapter on the anatomy and physiology of the eye contain information not usually included in standard textbooks of anaesthesia. Some chapters, such as "Systemic effects of drugs used for ophthalmic surgery" and "The eye as a mirror of disease" are extended to provide medicine and pharmacology.
