Apart from diabetes mellitus, endocrine diseases requiring surgical treatment are relatively uncommon. However, when they do occur, they frequently present major clinical anaesthestic problems that require extensive knowledge of the pathophysiology of the condition, and considerable anaesthetic expertise. This book provides the anaesthetist with a comprehensive examination of each of the endocrine conditions, covering underlying pathophysiological problems, and guidance on optimal anaesthetic care. It will be of use to trainee and consultant anaesthetists working in both specialist endocrine wards and general surgery wards where a patient with endocrine disease might present. Provides an essential ready-reference to all aspects of endocrine disease for the practising anaesthetist Features detailed descriptions of the pathophysiology of each disease with evidence-based recommendations for clinical practice from experts in their field Illustrations and diagrams throughout indicate key anaesthetic procedures Edited by Mike James , Department of Anaesthesia, University of Cape Town, and Groote Schuur Hospital, Cape Town, South Africa CONTENTS 1: Dinky Levitt & Ian Ross: Basic endocrine concepts in health and critical illness 2: Jeffrey J.
