The practice of cardiac anesthesia continues to evolve to keep pace with changes in cardiac surgery, technology, and the patient population. This presents new and unprecedented perioperative challenges for the cardiac anesthetist managing older and sicker patients. This handbook aims to collate and present the progressive changes in cardiac anesthesia and cardiovascular intensive care. The Cardiac Anesthesia Handbook comprises 34 chapters encompassing 4 main areas:
- Cardiac Anesthesia
- Cardiac Surgical Procedures

Up-to-date material is presented in tables, algorithms, and diagrams to clearly present practical information for cardiac anesthetists and fellows managing the cardiac surgery patient.
