New Multi-Media Edition Offers Up-to-the-Minute Clinical Guidance
Philadelphia, PA (PRWEB) May 27, 2009 -- Publisher Lippincott Williams & Wilkins (LWW) today announced the release of a groundbreaking, print-and-electronic edition of Clinical Anesthesia, edited by Paul G. Barash, MD. LWW is part of Wolters Kluwer Health, a leading provider of information and business intelligence for students, professionals, and institutions in medicine, nursing, allied health, pharmacy and the pharmaceutical industry. For the first time, the full content of Clinical Anesthesia is supported by a companion Website and clinical podcasts.
"With each edition of Clinical Anesthesia we develop innovative and contemporary ways to disseminate knowledge to our readers," said Dr. Barash, a professor of anesthesiology at Yale University School of Medicine. "With the sixth edition, we are the first anesthesia text to use podcasting to rapidly transmit clinically relevant information."
The first four Clinical Anesthesia podcasts in the series focus on inhaled anesthetics, anesthesia for the obese patient, immune function and allergic response, and pulmonary function testing. New podcasts will be added to the Website throughout the year.
Clinical Anesthesia, Sixth Edition, features two new editors and updated clinical content from 131 new contributors. "The publication of this edition occurs at a time of great clinical, educational, and research advances," said Barash. "Approximately a third of our contributors are new to this edition, adding a fresh point of view to important clinical content."
In addition to fully updated clinical content, the sixth edition includes new chapters on echocardiography, inflammation, wound healing, and infection and features full-color images and design.
