    I am searching for the book Essence of Anesthesia Practice by Roizen & Fleisher. I was only able to find one used copy for $500!! I even contacted the publisher, but the book is out of print. Does anyone have any ideas how I can get my hands on a copy? Also, if anyone knows of any additional resources/books/PDA programs for developing Anesthesia Care Plans I would greatly appreciate it! Thanks.

    Hi AmandaSRNA,
    The Handbook of Anesthesiology by Mark Ezekiel (the 2008 edition just came out) helped me a lot when writing my careplans. It has a lot of the anesthetic implications for ex. HTN, COPD, DM, Renal Failure, Obesity, Latex allergy, etc. It is very small and compact. My senior gave it to me for Christmas last year and it has proved invaluable. I carry it in my bag with me to the OR and pull it out often. It also contains lists of drugs that you commonly give, dosages, onset, peak, duration, side effects, etc. Check it out at and see if this helps. Jaffe and the Anesthesia & Coexisting Disease books are also good but I found this one to be the most straightforward and to the point when dealing with the anesthetic implications of the patients review of systems and writing out your anesthesia plans.

    I discovered this site:

    I downloaded all of the care plans from the Southern Illinois site but I'm not sure how to share them.

    Hope this helps!
