The world is experiencing an obesity epidemic. In both industrialized and emerging countries, the percentage of adults and children with obesity is increasing annually. It is no longer unusual to encounter a patient with extreme or morbid obesity in the operating room; these patients are routinely scheduled for every type of surgical procedure. Everyone involved in the peri-operative management of the surgical patient with morbid obesity – surgeons, anesthesiologists, internists, psychologists, nurses, nutritionists, respiratory therapists – must be aware of the special needs of these patients. Morbid Obesity: Peri-operative Management, 2nd edition considers the perioperative care of the morbidly obese patient, from preoperative preparation to intraoperative management and through to their postoperative course. Edited by leading experts in the management of the morbidly obese surgical patient, Morbid Obesity: Peri-operative Management, second edition, provides clear, practical clinical guidance on the management of the extremely obese surgical patient.

• Comprehensive discussion of perioperative management from both an anaesthetic and surgical perspective - relevant to anesthesiologists, surgeons and intensivists, internists, nurses, nutritionists and respiratory therapists
• Overview of pathophysiology associated with morbid obesity enables a focused preoperative assessment
• Up to date state-of-the-art care of the morbidly obese patient undergoing surgery
