oral, dental, and maxillofacial surgery represents one of the most common indications for anaesthesia worldwide. An understanding of this subject matter is fundamental to the safe practice of anaesthesia. The anaesthetist can be called upon to provide anaesthesia for patients presenting with impacted or carious teeth, infections of the mucosa and adjacent structures, facial injuries, head and neck cancers, salivary gland disease, facial disproportion, temporomandibular joint disorders, cysts, and tumours of the jaws. Anaesthetists may also be involved in managing patients experiencing chronic and intractable facial pain.
This book provides a comprehensive and detailed overview of all aspects of anaesthesia for oral and maxillofacial surgery. Designed for both consultants and trainees with an interest in this area, chapters cover the anatomy, pre-assessment, difficult airway, regional anaesthesia, imaging, and all clinical aspects of this complex area.
