Concise Anatomy for Anaesthesia
A knowledge of anatomy has always played a vital role in medicine, and is especially important in the everyday practice of anaesthesia. This 2002 text presents the core anatomical knowledge required for the Primary and Final FRCA examinations in a simple and straightforward manner. Adopting the philosophy of the examination itself, where candidates are often required to reproduce simple line drawings to illustrate the depth of their knowledge, the many illustrations in the book are clear and easy to understand at a glance. The illustrations are accompanied by explanatory text throughout and for each anatomical region, sample examination questions are included which follow the format of those asked in the examinations. This book will interest anaesthesia Primary and Final candidates, as well as providing a valuable quick reference for busy anaesthetists at all levels of experience.
