Anaesthesia is often intimidating for students. Within the relatively short time allocated to this disciplines on most undergraduate curricula, there seems to be a bewildering array of unfamiliar drugs, equipment, and practical procedures. At the very heart of anaesthesia is the modern concept of perioperative medicine. This Anaesthesia at a Glance 1st edition book gives the fundamentals of anesthesia, such as assessment and management of the airway, respiration, circulation, and analgesia, apply to all hospital staff involved in the care of the surgical patient.
Both authors are practicing clinical anesthetists and also actively involved in undergraduate teaching. Moreover, as anesthetists are the most significant single group of doctors within hospital medicine, it seems appropriate that a contemporary undergraduate textbook is available as an introduction to the specialty.
The authors have aimed to cover the practice of anesthesia to a level appropriate for a medical student who is about to embark on the Foundation Programme. Specific specialized subjects that are traditionally taught, such as physics, have therefore been omitted.Each chapter Anaesthesia at a Glance 1st edition has a self-assessment section of both multiple choice questions and case studies. The answers are not exhaustive but should encourage further reading on the subject.
While this Anaesthesia at a Glance 1st edition book is aimed primarily at undergraduate medical students,
it may also prove of value to Foundation Doctors looking after patients in the perioperative period, doctors embarking on a career in anesthesia and theatre staff such as Operating Department Practitioners
