    Summary: This book provides a practical approach to cardiac perioperative care. The step-by-step format guides readers from basic concepts, such as cardiac physiology and pharmacology, to anesthetic management of specific cardiac surgical procedures, including cardiac percutaneous interventions, management of specific cardiac disease, circulatory support, and organ protection strategies. Written by experienced cardiac anesthesiologists in Europe, USA, Canada and Australia, this book provides an international perspective on the topic with each chapter referring the reader to the relevant key reading. Cardiac Anesthesia and Postoperative Care in the 21st Century is aimed at new consultants in cardiac anesthesia and intensive care, residents, and fellows. It may also be of interest to perfusionists and is a refreshing update for the experienced cardiac anesthesiologist.
