Anatomy for Anaesthetists


By (author): Harold Ellis, Andrew Lawson

First published in 1963, Anatomy for Anaesthesists is the definitive anatomy text for anaesthetists in training and remains an invaluable reference for those in practice. The text explores in depth those areas of particular interest to anaesthetists: the respiratory pathway, the heart, the vertebral canal and its contents, the peripheral nerves, the autonomic nervous system, and the cranial nerves, and also includes sections on the anatomy of pain and other zones of anaesthetic interest.

This new 9th edition has been fully revised and updated to incorporate developments in regional techniques and the increased use of ultrasound.

Features: Case Files Anesthesiology
By (author): Lydia A. Conlay, Julia E. Pollock, Mary Ann Vann, Sheela Pai, Eugene C. Toy

Learn the fundamentals of anesthesiology in the context of real patients.

4 STAR DOODY’S REVIEW!
“The book targets medical students, but even junior anesthesia trainees would find it very compelling….Although it has the appearance of a handbook, this book is an overview of clinical anesthesiology. It takes a simulation approach to drive home essential concepts of anesthesia management in different disease conditions. Of all the handy books out there, this is perhaps the only one that teaches anesthesia in the context of real patients rather than merely stating facts. It would be an invaluable aid to medical students doing anesthesia clerkships or junior anesthesia trainees who need a quick review for an emergency case in the middle of the night.”–Doody’s Review Service
