Single best answer multiple choice questions are considered invaluable in assessing a trainee’s ability to apply knowledge to clinical practice. This book comprises six sets of practice papers, each set containing 30 single best answer questions in basic sciences applicable to the practice of anaesthesia, pain management and intensive care. The single best answer stem is presented as a clinical problem followed by a lead-in question and five possible options. The best possible answer to a given question is substantiated by detailed explanation drawn from recent review articles and textbooks in anaesthesia and basic sciences. At the end of the answer section to each question, a useful list of references are provided to aid further reading. These questions will enable candidates to assess how well they can apply their factual knowledge on basic sciences to their clinical practice. Alongside the authors’ previously published book, Single Best Answer MCQs in Anaesthesia: Volume 1 – Clinical Anaesthesia, this book supplements the essential study material for post-graduate examinations in anaesthesia and intensive care medicine. This book is also a valuable educational resource for all trainees and practicing anaesthetists.

Equipment in Anaesthesia and Critical Care follows the syllabus published by the Royal College of Anaesthetists and is the perfect guide for candidates studying for their FRCA qualifications.
The book is beautifully illustrated and features high quality colour 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 standardised format means that information is easy to access and perfect for revision. Every major piece of equipment is featured alongside colour photos, reproducible line diagrams, and information on its uses, how it works, pros and cons, and safety considerations.
The authors appreciate exactly what candidates need to know to pass the FRCA exam. They 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.

From reviews:

“…The text is well edited, with reassuring technical accuracy… In particular there are excellent summaries related to difficult topics such as ultrasound and ventilators… This book will prove a success amongst exam-fearing FRCA candidates…” Anaesthesia, 2014
“…They have produced a well researched text that has been carefully matched to the FRCA syllabus, covering all the components in a thorough, yet clear and concise manner… To further improve the user friendly nature of this book, there is a suitable balance of text to pictures… In summary, this book provides an easy-to-read, clear and comprehensive guide to the equipment used in anaesthesia and critical care and would be useful for all those revising for postgraduate examinations…” European Journal of Anaesthesiology, 2014
“…The main advantage of this book over other books of this genre is the manner in which the information is provided. The authors are able to break down confusing concepts and equipment design into an explanation that is much easier to understand compared with other such books… This book also excels in providing short and concise explanations, making the search for a particular answer much more efficient. Another advantage to the book is that it is remarkably up to date and appears to feature most of the common brands available in today’s market…” Canadian Journal of Anesthesia, 2014
“…it works not only as a revision tool but also as a useful reference text for anaesthetists and other healthcare professionals, including operating department practitioners, anaesthetic nurses, intensive care nurses, physiotherapists and resuscitation officers alike… I would definitely recommend this book as an essential text for trainees sitting the primary FRCA, particularly novices who will find that this book simplifies the complex world of anaesthetic equipment.” Journal of the Intensive Care Society (JICS), 2014

This definitive resource from the eminent Oxford Textbooks series, the Oxford Textbook of Anaesthesia addresses the fundamental principles, underpinning sciences and the full spectrum of clinical practice. It brings together the most pertinent research from on-going scientific endeavours with practical guidance and a passion to provide the very best clinical care to patients.

This comprehensive work covers all aspects of anaesthesia; volume one addresses the fundamental principles and the basic sciences whose understanding is required for a logical, effective and evidence-based approach to practice. Volume two focuses on the clinical aspects of anaesthesia, including those aspects of intensive care and pain medicine that are required by all general anaesthetists as well as sections dedicated to procedures, surgical specialities, paediatrics, the conduct of anaesthesia outside the theatre, and concurrent disease.

In 91 finely crafted and highly illustrated chapters, experts in anaesthesia review the supporting evidence and key techniques for the clinical management of specific conditions and patient groups. International contributors share their research and extensive experience to provide a wealth of practical advice for use in clinical situations in a global context.

The Oxford Textbook of Anaesthesia will publish both in print and online on Oxford Medicine Online where it can be accessed via smartphone or similar devices and will be updated annually to reflect major changes in clinical practice. The print edition of the Oxford Textbook of Anaesthesia comes with a year’s access to the online version.

This essential reference tool supports all anaesthetists seeking an up-to-date and trustworthy account of all aspects of anaesthesia. It will be an indispensable guide to anaesthetists of all grades and subspecialty interest.

Anesthesia for Non-anesthesiologists (July 2017 Release)

 Anesthesiology  Comments Off on Anesthesia for Non-anesthesiologists (July 2017 Release)
Jul 132018
 

Anesthesiology is one of the least understood medical specialties. The drugs and equipment are specialized to a point where physicians in other fields have little knowledge of how they work. Moreover, the specific techniques and concerns of anesthesiologists regarding patient care are scarcely known outside of the specialty. Most physicians have had a paltry amount of training in anesthesia, if any at all. Within many medical schools, there is no requirement to rotate in anesthesiology; if required, the rotation is seen sometimes as a means to practice intubations and place IVs for a period of two to four weeks, instead of actually learning anesthesia techniques and practices. As their role in patient care has stretched outside of the operating room, anesthesiologists have found that there is often frustration and even conflict in dealing with other specialties that do not understand the concerns and necessities that accompany this practice. Why is NPO important? Why does the patient need to see a cardiologist pre-operatively? Why would the patient benefit from using Drug A vs Drug B? These questions come up not only in the operating room, but on the obstetrical floor, in the endoscopy suite, in the critical care units and elsewhere. It is the authors’ hope that this book, Anesthesia for Non-Anesthesiologists, will help to decrease such problems. With chapters written by a variety of anesthesiologists and subspecialty clinicians at a major teaching hospital, and edited by experienced academic physicians, the target audience for this work includes physicians, medical residents, and students who wish to understand how anesthesiologists think and why they think as they do.

 Anesthesiology, Critical Care  Comments Off on Monitoring Mechanical Ventilation Using Ventilator Waveforms (February 2018 Release)
Jun 242018
 

This book discusses the interpretation of mechanical ventilator waveforms. Each page shows a screenshot from a real patient and explains one or two messages. It starts with basic information about the waveforms and goes on to address passive and spontaneous ventilation, non-invasive ventilation and specific measurements such as pressure-volume curves and esophageal pressure. Step by step, readers learn about advanced monitoring of patient-ventilator synchronisation. This unique teaching approach has been adapted to this topic.

Covering the entire field of mechanical ventilation, it is of particular interest to physicians and respiratory therapist working in emergency departments, anesthesiology, intensive care and respiratory units.
