Basic Physiology for Anaesthetists
Christopher Huang, David Chamberse altri
editore: Cambridge University Press
Every trainee in anaesthesia requires a thorough understanding of basic physiology and its application to clinical practice. This comprehensively illustrated textbook bridges the gap between medical school and reference scientific texts. It covers the physiology requirements of the Primary FRCA examination syllabus. Chapters are organised by organ system, with particular emphasis given to the respiratory, cardiovascular and nervous systems. The practical question-and-answer format helps the reader prepare for the oral examination, while 'clinical relevance' boxes translate the physiological concepts to clinical practice. The authors include two medical physiologists and a Specialty Registrar in anaesthesia, and thereby bring a unique blend of expertise. This ensures that the book is up-to-date, accessible, and pitched appropriately for the trainee anaesthetist. Packed with easily understood, up-to-date and clinically relevant material, this convenient volume provides an essential 'one-stop' resource in physiology for junior anaesthetists.
Applied Anatomy for Anaesthesia and Intensive Care
Andy Georgiou, Chris Thompsone altri
editore: Cambridge University Press
Applied Anatomy for Anaesthesia and Intensive Care is an invaluable tool for trainee and practised anaesthetists and intensive care physicians seeking to learn, revise and develop their anatomical knowledge and procedural skills. Concise textual descriptions of anatomy are integrated with descriptions of procedures that are frequently performed in anaesthesia and intensive care, such as nerve blocks, focussed echo, lung ultrasound, vascular access procedures, front of neck airway access and chest drainage. The text is supported by over 200 high-quality, colour, anatomical illustrations, which are correlated with ultrasound, fibre optic and radiological images, allowing the reader to easily interpret nerve block sonoanatomy, airway fibre optic images and important features on CT and MRI scans. Useful mnemonics and easily reproducible sketch diagrams make this an essential resource for anyone studying towards postgraduate examinations in anaesthesia and intensive care medicine.
Anatomy for anaesthetists
ELLIS H. , LAWSON A.
First published in 1963, "Anatomy for Anaesthesists" is the definitive anatomy text for anaesthetists in training and remains an invaluable reference for those in practice. The text explores in depth those areas of particular interest to anaesthetists: the respiratory pathway, the heart, the vertebral canal and its contents, the peripheral nerves, the autonomic nervous system, and the cranial nerves, and also includes sections on the anatomy of pain and other zones of anaesthetic interest. This new 9th edition has been fully revised and updated to incorporate developments in regional techniques and the increased use of ultrasound.
Sonoanatomy for Anaesthetists
Anil Ahmed, Atul Gaure altri
editore: Cambridge University Press
The accuracy with which clinicians can locate nerves and blood vessels has increased greatly with the development of portable handheld ultrasound scanners, and no specialty has felt the benefit more than anesthesia. This practical atlas of ultrasound anatomy addresses the two main challenges for anyone learning ultrasound-guided techniques: 1. Where do I place the probe? 2. What exactly am I looking at? Each nerve block or vascular access site is illustrated with: * An anatomical line illustration * A clinical photograph showing the correct ultrasound probe position * The ultrasound scan * A line illustration of the scan labelled to indicate the salient anatomical features All relevant anatomic regions are included: upper limb, lower limb, neck, thorax and abdomen. Concise notes for each entry indicate scan landmarks and give useful tips and advice on potential complications. Sonoanatomy for Anesthetists is an essential resource for anesthetists, intensivists and chronic pain specialists.
Clinical Cases in Anesthesia
Expert Consult Online and Print
Allan P. Reed, Francine S. Yudkowitz
editore: Churchill Livingstone
Actual case studies in a Q & A format explore contemporary problems in anesthesia, and provide practical solutions based on a careful examination of all of the important scientific and clinical principles for each case. The 3rd edition offers brand-new coverage of key topics in the cardiovascular, respiratory, central nervous system, abdomen, and post-anesthesia care sections as well as a completely new section on trauma. It also addresses important topics such as hemophilia, infant anesthesia, lower extremity anesthesia, and celiac plexus blocks. All of the existing cases are thoroughly revised to include new treatments and practice guidelines, and new knowledge of the relevant pharmacology. It's an ideal review tool for board preparation, and a handy resource for practice.
Physiology for Anaesthesiologists
J. P. Howard Fee, James G. Bovill
editore: Informa Healthcare
Anaesthesiologists regularly administer potent, and potentially toxic, drugs that profoundly interfere with fundamental physiological functions such as breathing, cardiac output, blood pressure, the protective reflexes and the perception of pain. Reviewing all aspects of human physiology, Physiology for Anaesthesiologists provides a working knowledge of physiological principles and their application to anaesthesia and intensive care. The text covers the various systems of the human body, from the central nervous system to the liver and kidneys. The reader gains an understanding not only of each system discussed, but also of how each of those physiological systems interact with each other. The section on pain, for example, explains how the body warns of dysfunction in one or more systems. In addition to covering the core material for professional examinations, some topics not usually dealt with in textbooks for anaesthetists are also covered, such as the impact of anaesthesia and surgery on the immune system. Written in a clear and concise style, the book supplies up-to-date information to trainees in anaesthesiology and related specialities preparing for professional examinations: both editors have a wealth of experience in these subjects. The book also helps established anaesthesiologists, and those in other related specialities, who want to keep up with recent developments in the field.
