Equipment in Anaesthesia and Critical Care: A Complete Guide for the FRCA

 Anesthesiology, Critical Care  Comments Off on Equipment in Anaesthesia and Critical Care: A Complete Guide for the FRCA
Dec 042018
 

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
