A Surgeon’s Guide to Anaesthesia and Peri-operative Care 1st Edition
Have you struggled to find information on diathermy, ventilation, types of anaesthetic, what the anaesthetist does, or problems with positioning – the little bits other books leave out? If so, then this is the book for you, anaesthetics tailored specifically to the MRCS syllabus. The book is presented in three sections. The first focuses on applied basic sciences for the surgeon. The second discusses peri-operative care and specific considerations that arise in the surgical specialties from both the surgical and anaesthetic view-point. Each chapter is written by clinical specialists in surgery and anaesthesia, with up-to-date information on topics including damage limitation surgery in trauma, transfusion practice, CPET testing, and enhanced recovery. The third section, “At a Glance”, is written in an easily accessible, brief format for revision or reference. Topics covered include, post-operative cognitive dysfunction, coagulation, fluids and scoring systems. This is an essential text for all surgical trainees.
This book brings together the principles of applied anaesthesia (physiology, pharmacology and physics) for surgical specialties, tailored to the MRCS syllabus. A team of authors, all experts in their fields, concisely discuss all of the peri-operative stages. Hugely beneficial reading for surgeons, especially those in training, junior anaesthetists and ODPs.
