About The Author

Shanmugam, Naresh

Acute management of children with liver disease and liver transplantation has rapidly evolved over the last two decades due to worldwide availability of complex liver surgery and liver transplantation. This book edited by Prof Dhawan and Dr Shanmugam, who have hands on experience in managing children with complex liver disease, its complications and liver transplant recepients, provides to a very practical approach to all the team members involved in paediatric transplantation like ; Hepatologists, anaesthetists, surgeons, intensivists, transplant coordinators, nurses and trainees at all levels and specialities. Topics covered include management of common liver problems, liver based metabolic disorders and peri-operative care protocols in paediatric liver transplantation. It also provides up to date information on drug dosage and infusion calculations for common drugs used in liver disease.
