Anatomy for Anaesthetists, 8th edition

Anatomy for Anaesthesia

This book has been written to help candidates sitting their professional examination in anaesthesia in order that they may have at their disposal the detailed anatomical knowledge necessary for the day to day practice of anaesthesia. Unlike a textbook of anatomy, which must cover all parts of the body with equally exhaustive thoroughness, this book concentrates particularly on areas of special relevance to anaesthesia and points out features of practical importance to anaesthetic technique. The text is divided into nine sections; the respiratory pathway, the heart, the vertebral canal, the peripheral nerves; The Autonomic Nervous System; The Cranial Nerves; The Orbit and its contents; The Anatomy of Pain and Zones of Anaesthetic Interest.The eighth edition has fully expanded and updated text; and includes new and improved illustrations.

Textbook Of Anaesthesia, 4 edition

This is a New Edition of a very successful textbook aimed at trainee anaesthetists taking the Fellowship examination of the Royal College of Anaesthetists and similar exams. The examination has changed since the current edition was published moving from a three part exam to a two part one, with Part 1 now having a much greater basic science content. The New Edition should consolidate the book's position as the dominant teaxt for Part 1 of the FRCA. It is also highly suitable for exams such as the Diploma of Anaesthesiology of the European Academy of Aneaesthesiology.

Radiology for Anaesthesia and Intensive Care

Radiology for anaesthesia and intensive care

As more anaesthetists become involved in critical care and other areas of perioperative management,
they need to be able to request radiological investigations, and interpret the results quickly and accurately.
This concise and fully illustrated book covers the key aspects of imaging that are of relevance to anaesthetists and intensivists, and examines all imaging modalities that are likely to be called upon (plain film, CT, MRI etc.).
The book is organised logically by body system for ease of access to information and is written by a team of radiologists and anaesthetists, providing a dual perspective.

Ultimate Anesthesia Quick Reference Guide
Ultimate Anesthesia Quick Reference Guide

This document provides causes and treatments for perioperative events and is a reference for commonly encountered perioperative issues.
Explanations and instructions have been omitted because it is assumed that the anesthesiologist is experienced with basics of crisis management.
This reference does not replace a definative anesthesia text, but is intended to be a repository of anything the anesthesiologist may need to know RIGHT NOW---either when in a crisis, doing a preoperative eval, or setting up for a case.
Very practical and easy to use. The author anticipates the user’s next question and provides a link to find the answer.

Includes algorithm for pre-op eval before non-cardiac surgery, transfusion guidelines. Very handy indeed even for the non-anesthesiologist. A great addition to the free medical references available on the PDA. Updated frequently.

Ultrasound Guided Nerve Blockade

Ultrasound guided blockade

Recent advances in technology have brought a new generation of portable and affordable 2-D ultrasound devices to patients' bedsides and following the introduction of NICE guidelines recommending the use of ultrasound for the placement of central venous catheters, the availability of these devices in anaesthetic environments is increasing.
One developing area of ultrasound use in anaesthesia is for performing peripheral nerve blockade. Portable 2D ultrasound allows the clinican to place needles with precision, guided by a real-time image of the patient's actual anatomy and not that implied by surface anatomy landmarks. Such a technique offers potential advantages including:

Improved effectiveness with accurate and reliable deposition of local anaesthetic to target.

Improved safety profile with the potential to eliminate traumatic nerve injury from needle placement and intravascular injection.

Eliminates technical difficulties associated with individual anatomical variation and distortion in for example obese patients.In order to benefit from these advantages, clinicians require training in this new technique as well as access to appropriate equipment and consumables. It is hoped that this electronic introductory text will generate interest amongst clinicians and encourage them to undertake training and continue to develop this potentially revolutionary field.
