This book discusses, explains and provides detailed, up-to-date information on physics applied to clinical practice in anesthesiology, with the aid of simple examples from daily life. Almost everything that happens around us, including in the operating room and intensive care units, can be explained by physical laws. An awareness and understanding of relatively simple laws  such as Bernoulli’s theorem, Hagen-Poiseuille equation and Pascal’s principle, to name just a few, offer anesthesiologists and intensivists fascinating insights into why they do what they do.

Each of the 16 chapters starts with an everyday phenomenon, explains it with a physical law, and then shows why that law is important in anesthesia practice. Numerous illustrations are included for extra clarity.

It is intended for anesthesiologists, intensivists, anesthesia teachers, anesthesia trainees, and medical students.

Preface.- Part I. Gases, bubbles and surroundings.- Perfect coffee and oxygen cylinders: the ideal gas law.- Boats, balloons, and air bubbles: Archimedes’ principle.- Air bubbles in the blood sample: better or worse oxygenation? Dalton’s law and Fick’s law .- Cold, sparkling drinks, and blood gas analysis: Henry’s law.- Bubbles, tracheal tube cuffs, and reservoir bags: surface tension and Laplace’s law.- Part II. Fluids in motion: masks, tubes, and hemodynamics.- The Venturi mask works like an airplane: Bernoulli’s theorem.- From tubes and catheters to the basis of hemodynamics: the Hagen–Poiseuille equation.- Part III. Hemodynamic monitoring.- Toothpaste, sea deeps, and invasive pressure monitoring: Stevin’s law and Pascal’s principle.- Heat, cardiac output, and what is the future: laws of thermodynamics.- Part IV. Forces in action.- Doors, steering wheels, and central venous catheters: the moment of a force (torque).- Friction, trigonometry, and Newton’s laws: all about Trendelenburg position.- Part V. Inhalation anesthesia.- Why a vaporizer is not exactly a vaporizer and why it weighs so much: saturated vapor pressure and heat of vaporization.- Thermal expansion: train tracks, thermostats and, again, vaporizers.- The voice of xenon: origin and propagation of sound.- Part VI. Electromagnetic waves.- Light, air pollution and pulse oximetry: the Beer-Lambert law.- Cerebral oximetry and why the sky is blue: Rayleigh scattering.- Catch me if you can: X-ray, Compton scattering and the inverse square law.- Part VII. Now we exaggerate.- Activated clotting time and… A brief look at the theory of relativity.

Biografie

Antonio Pisano is a staff anesthesiologist and intensivist at the Cardiac Anesthesia and Intensive Care Unit of the Monaldi High Specialty and University Hospital, A.O. "Dei Colli", Naples, Italy. He is also an Adjunct Professor of Hemodynamic Monitoring and Perioperative Hemodynamic Management in Cardiac Surgery at the Postgraduate School of Cardiac Surgery, University of Campania "Luigi Vanvitelli", Italy. He has published numerous papers in journals such as the New England Journal of Medicine, Journal of the American Medical Association, Critical Care Medicine, Anesthesia & Analgesia, the American Heart Journal, and the Journal of Cardiothoracic and Vascular Anesthesia. He is a book author and the author of several book chapters in the field of anesthesiology and critical care medicine, including a chapter in two different editions of the renowned Kaplan's Cardiac Anesthesia textbook. Currently, he is the principal investigator in several multicenter randomized trials and is a reviewer for various international journals. He is, of course, also a great physics enthusiast.

Leserkritik
“Antoni Pisano provides a lot of useful information about physics in general and applied physics in anesthesia and critical care in specific. … this book is a perfect match for both junior residents and experienced staff members. One may read it for pleasure and enjoy the funny examples or use it to quickly review some formulas. It may be a good companion for both the couch at home and the operating room.” (Peter Markus Spieth, Anesthesia & Analgesia, Vol. 127 (2), August, 2018)
