Product description

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.

Review quote

Nothing beats practice and experienced guidance, but this text is an aide memoire I am glad to have found. British Journal of Hospital Medicine I can thoroughly recommend this book. It should be available in all departments of anaesthesia and critical care as a handy and rapid reference for anaesthetists beginning their training or before carrying out an invasive procedure. Anaesthesia I enjoyed reading through this handbook size, soft cover book...I believe amny anaesthetic and critical care trainess will purchase a copy of the book and it will be a popular choice for departmental libraries. It should also be of interest to other acute medical and surgical trainees, plus other critical care and theatre staff. The writing style and clear illustrations make this book very easy to read. The organisation of the chapters and the size of the book make it an excellent reference text which can be taken to work... It is also a valuable resource for the FRCA examinations.
