This is the revised and updated version of the classic text on Neural Therapy available in English. This atlas, with its outstanding color photographs, gives the physician who uses Neural Therapy a clear picture of the different injections and Neural Therapy techniques. The text is succinct and limited to the most essential details in indications, materials and technique. It describes the point of insertion, the direction of the needle and the injection depth. This clear outline lets the physician find the information needed quickly and efficiently.
This is a comprehensive and authoritative presentation of total intravenous anesthesia (TIVA) and target controlled infusion (TCI). The editors’ international reputation has enabled them to recruit leading experts from around the world to write single-author chapters in their area of expertise. Total Intravenous Anesthesia and Target Controlled Infusions is the first multi-disciplinary, globally authored volume on the topic.
Providing a single source of information on all aspects of TIVA and TCI, from pharmacologic modeling and the pharmacology of intravenous anesthetic drugs to practical considerations in the clinical setting and the requirements of special populations, Total Intravenous Anesthesia and Target Controlled Infusions examines the debate about the risks and advantages of TIVA, analyze outcome studies, and provides guidance on creating a curriculum to teach TIVA and TCI.

From reviews: ?This book is excellent. I have read a number of equipment related books and found most of them stale and filled with minutia. Instead this fresh look at equipment really makes it interesting to read and keeps your attention. With sections that give quick answers to how things work, advantages and disadvantages, in an easy to read format you get exactly what you want to know RIGHT away. In addition the full color photos and well done charts really add to the depth of this book. It is my opinion this may be one of the best books on the market for quick review of anesthesia and critical care equipment. Let’s be honest, no one is sitting at home reading equipment books for pleasure so when you NEED the information you likely need it right away. This book does exactly that; easy format, clear and concise information with everything you need to know about a piece of equipment easy to find and within a page or two. I would recommend this to all trainees in anesthesia but also for those providers who like to be prepared in the operating room to deal with any issue that might arise.” www.nurse-anesthesia.org, 8 Feb 2014
Equipment in Anaesthesia and Critical Care is written specifically for anesthesia trainees, including residents and nurse anesthetists in training.
The book is beautifully illustrated and features high quality color photographs throughout. The text is engaging and comprehensive, relating each piece of equipment back to its basic physics, mechanics and clinical context. The clear, concise and standardized format means that information is easy to access and perfect for reference and review. Every major piece of equipment is featured alongside color photos, reproducible line diagrams, and information on its uses, how it works, pros and cons, and safety considerations.
The authors have identified and tackled difficult subjects which are often glossed over or omitted in other resources, to produce a book that is comprehensive, engaging and to the point.
Edited and written by leading educators, this popular book for the anesthesiology rotation has been thoroughly updated and retains its distinctive case-based approach. The Second Edition features a thorough revision of the discussion of ventilator management, improved coverage of extubation criteria, and the latest guidelines and algorithms for preoperative assessment. Considerations for quality improvement and patient safety have been expanded throughout the book. Anesthesia Student Survival Guide provides a complete introduction to the specialty and is aimed at medical and nursing students as well as practitioners in critical care who seek a succinct overview of anesthesiology.
From reviews of the First Edition: “…an excellent resource for the student wanting a deeper understanding of what is essentially a post-graduate subject, for example, an elective student.” –British Journal of Anaesthesia
“This is an excellent introduction to the specialty for third-year medical students, covering a broad range of material at a sufficient depth to be useful, and providing a good structure for a comprehensive course of self-directed study.” –Doody’s Review Service
“The writing style is uniformly strong, which makes the book easy to read.…[It] serves not only as an excellent resource for students and other learners seeking an introduction to anesthesia but also as a platform for teaching the basics. It will be a welcome addition to the libraries of teaching departments.” –Canadian Journal of Anesthesia

Providing the inside track on how the experts approach and deal with real-world clinical scenarios, Challenging Concepts in Anaesthesia selects specific challenging cases that are encountered in everyday clinical practice but do not have simple answers. A case-based guide to challenging areas in anaesthesia and pain management, this book covers the major sub-specialty areas in both fields. Complex cases are comprehensively examined from a multidisciplinary approach with detailed consideration given to management options and the contemporary evidence base behind these decisions.
An effective revision aid and a reference during workplace-based assessments, Challenging Concepts in Anaesthesia highlights critical information through the use of boxed features: ‘Learning points’, ‘Clinical tips’, ‘Evidence-base’. Each chapter has been reviewed by a national or international expert in the field and they have provided an ‘Expert commentary’, giving a unique insight into how today’s opinion leaders confront and deal with the very same management conundrums that all clinicians can potentially face day in, day out.
Mapped to the Royal College of Anaesthetists’ matrix for CME and the FRCA syllabus, this book is ideal for continuing medical education and revalidation as well as for trainees preparing for examinations.
