This is a major revision, updating, and expansion of the leading single-source volume on pediatric sedation outside of the operating room. Edited and written by an international roster of outstanding experts, it is the only book aimed at the broad range of specialists who deliver pediatric sedation in the non-OR setting.
The Second Edition features a significant expansion of contributions from international leaders and individual new chapters on pre-sedation assessment; sedatives' short- and long-term effects on neurocognition; non-pharmacologic distractions; Michael Jackson's death and medical ethics; the role of simulation in safety and training; and palliative sedation in terminally ill children.The specialty-specific chapters continue to be geared toward all sedation providers, regardless of where they practice and patient safety is again emphasized.Â Fundamental chapters provide in-depth reviews of topics which include, among others, physiology and pharmacology.Â The book presents the latest guidelines across the specialties, both in the United States and abroad and noteworthy, ongoing research endeavors.
From reviews of the First Edition:"This meritorious volume is a splendid collection of materials from highly experienced authorsI will make extensive use of this reference as the academic medical center in which I work continues to build sedation practices and assess credentialing/privileging aspects for professionals of all fields." -Joseph R. Tobin, MD in Journal of the American Medical Association.

Against this background, the second edition of 'Pediatric Sedation Outside the Operating Room' is a very timely addition to the anaesthesia literature."-British Journal of AnesthesiaÂ
The Berne Symposium invited leading scientists of risk assessment research with transgenic crops on an international level in order to enhance the discussion regulators and members of the biotech industry. The goal was to determine the status quo and also to make progress in times of a first global spread of transgenes in agrosystems about risk assessment. The dialogue between scientists, regulators and industry representatives also revealed some lacunes of risk assessment research, which will have to be filled in the future: We still lack longterm experience, for which we will have to collect data with scientific precision. The symposium concluded asking for a risk-oriented longterm monitoring system based on critical science and hard data. This volume presents the discussion sessions as well as the scientific contributions and thus mirrors the risk assessment debate, based not on exaggerated negative scenarios but on critical science and hard data.
