Anaesthesia for Emergency Care (Oxford Specialist Handbooks in Anaesthesia)

Features: Used Book in Good Condition
By (author): Jerry Nolan, Jasmeet Soar

Covering a key area for anaesthetists, Anaesthesia for Emergencies gives essential support for anaesthetic trainees. All anaesthetists cover emergencies in their on-call work, and emergency surgery coming in through the emergency department. This book covers all cases that trainees would expect to anaesthetize while being on call, both during the day and out of hours. It uniquely deals with the provision of anaesthesia in emergencies (on-call anaesthesia, trauma etc) rather than covering emergencies that occur during anaesthesia.

The book also ties into the curriculum for the CCT in Anaesthetics and it is covered in all three parts of the college’s CPD matrix, which in turn is linked to the revalidation curriculum.

Clinical Pediatric Anesthesia: A Case-Based Handbook

Features: Clinical Pediatric Anesthesia

Through 71 case presentations, Clinical Pediatric Anesthesia covers the field of pediatric anesthesiology with a practical, point-of-care approach. Each concisely written case is organized by introduction, learning objectives, case presentation, discussion, summary, annotated references, and further reading. In a style akin to the oral board examinations, discussions are framed as questions and answers to encourage thorough analysis and understanding by the reader. Key words are highlighted to emphasize important points, and annotated references allow for further exploration of topics. Multiple approaches often exist for the care of children in any given situation, so various options are discussed when appropriate with advantages and disadvantages closely examined. Since questions posed by real-life clinical situations call for active thinking, this case-based book promotes the same evaluation and decision-making skills required of the pediatric anesthesia clinician.

Essential Anesthesia is a concise, accessible introduction to anesthetic practice. Now in its second edition, it provides a thorough overview of the science and practice of anesthesia.

Part II introduces the essentials of physiology and pharmacology and their role in understanding the principles of anesthesia. The final part presents a step-by-step description of 14 clinical cases. These clinical vignettes give a very real introduction to the practicalities of anesthesia and will give the non-anesthetist physician an idea of how to prepare a patient for a surgical procedure. All chapters have been expanded and updated and an entirely new chapter on safety in healthcare has been added. This is the perfect introductory text for medical students, junior doctors and all operating theatre and critical care staff.
