Practical Procedures in Anaesthesia and Critical Care (Oxford Specialty Training: Techniques)

The ability to perform a wide variety of practical procedures safely and competently is essential for any doctor involved in the practice of anaesthesia and intensive care. Junior doctors especially are now called upon to gain competence in many invasive practical procedures in an increasingly short space of time, whilst also understanding the theory behind them.

This highly practical book is the only guide needed to the procedures and techniques commonly used in anaesthesia and critical care medicine. Step-by-step, it clearly explains each technique and procedure, enabling the reader to fully understand how and why they are performed. Full colour photographs illustrate each technique, and every chapter covers the same essential information: definition, indications, contraindications, complications, equipment, sites, and technique, for ease of use.

This book will be used by all junior trainees in anaesthesia, along with junior doctors from other specialities working in intensive care units. It will also be useful to any senior anaesthetist who wishes to update or refresh their knowledge, as well as anyone working in the emergency ward who performs any of these procedures.

Anesthesia Management for Electroconvulsive Therapy: Practical Techniques and Physiological Background

In this book, recognized anesthesiology experts present the latest findings on anesthesia for electro-convulsive therapy (ECT). With the development of modified electroconvulsive therapy (m-ECT) and devices to provide brief-pulse stimulation, ECT is currently being re-evaluated as an important procedure in psychiatric disorder therapy and is increasingly being used worldwide to treat several psychiatric conditions. This trend is due to the social phenomenon of the growing number of patients for whom ECT is applicable. Since the new approach is more safe and effective than the original method without anesthesia, m-ECT is currently applied under general anesthesia in most advanced countries.  This book provides an overview and practice of total anesthesia management in the perioperative period of ECT. It offers an indispensable resource not only for professional anesthesiologists but also healthcare professionals who use this therapy.

Basic Electrocardiography

This handy workbook covers the essential components of electrocardiography (ECG or EKG) and is useful in helping the reader identify a number of conditions, including arrhythmias, conduction blocks and heart attacks. Basic Electrocardiography reviews the fundamentals of this modality, from recognizing the normal tracing to specifics like identifying bundle branch blocks or ventricular fibrillation. This book will teach students not only the skills to interpret the electrocardiogram but also the language of electrocardiograms. Each chapter introduces basic themes, gives examples from actual patient tracings, and provides self-test electrocardiograms that will reinforce key concepts. Designed for the clerkship student, resident, or even the practicing professional who wants to brush up on EKG particulars, Basic Electrocardiography is a user-friendly guide to one of medicine's most useful tools.
