Special Issues, Collections and Topics in MDPI journals
During the last few years, the practice of anesthesiology has changed significantly, with anesthesiologist no longer only taking over the task of applying safe anesthesia and analgesia during surgical and diagnostic procedures but also being involved in pre-operative patient evaluation and improvement, as well as post-operative surveillance, especially in the increasing patient population with significant co-morbidities. Identifying and managing patient- and procedure-related risk factors plays a key role in daily clinical work. Adopting anesthesia practices in the rapidly changing and developing practice of surgical and nonsurgical medicine challenges anesthesiologists to choose the most adequate and safe treatment on an individual patient basis.
In this Special Issue of Journal of Clinical Medicine, original and review papers concerning relevant topics of anesthesia, intensive care, emergency care, and pain therapy in patients with clinically significant co-morbidities shall help anesthesiologists and intensivists to come to the most appropriate treatment of their patients in daily clinical practice.Prof. Dr. Benedikt Preckel
