Anaphylactic Reactions in Anesthesia and Intensive Care presents a critical review of the mechanisms of anaphylaxis. It discusses the effects of anaphylaxis, reactions of allergy, and immunization of allergy. It also addresses the mediators of anaphylactic reactions and the systems that can generate immediate hypersensitivity reactions. Some of the topics covered in the book are the common anaphylactic and anaphylactoid reactions observed by anesthesiologist; preoperative considerations in the patient; treatment to anaphylactic reactions; pharmacologic therapy for anaphylaxis; management of acute anaphylaxis; and managing sequelae in the recovery room and intensive care unit. The properties of an antigen and the synthesis of antibodies are discussed. An in-depth analysis of the classes of immunoglobulin is provided. The classification of immunologic reactions and physiology of cardiovascular collapse is also presented. A chapter is devoted to the description of mast cells and basophils. The book can provide useful information to anesthesiologists, doctors, students, and researchers.
