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. Concise Anatomy for Anaesthesia 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 designed to be 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 actually asked in the examinations. This book is essential reading for all anaesthesia Primary and Final candidates, as well as providing a valuable quick reference for busy anaesthetists at all levels of experience. Nurses, operating theatre practitioners and other healthcare professionals will also find this book useful in gaining a practical understanding of applied anatomy.
