Anesthesia Crash Course is uniquely positioned to address the needs of new trainees in anesthesia. This book is written in a conversational tone, avoiding unnecessary jargon and distilling the key concepts of anesthesia into easy-to-remember tidbits - an approach in increasing demand by medical students and junior physicians. The audience for this book is chiefly new anesthesia residents, interns, medical students who rotate through anesthesia services, and nurse anesthetists. By demystifying the world of anesthesia, it provides a welcome resource to medical students and RNs who are considering additional training in this popular but poorly understood specialty. Surgical residents who feel they're not up to speed with what's happening on the other side of the "ether screen" would certainly also benefit from reading Anesthesia Crash Course. New anesthesia trainees face an extremely daunting learning curve. As they progress through training, they will read longer and more detailed treatises on every aspect of modern anesthesia. It is not realistic to imagine that someone might finish such a book in the first week of his or her training! Anesthesia Crash Course wil serve as a bridge between a trainee's pre-anesthesia experience and more formal training. It can be read in the last month of internship, or in evenings while completing the first few weeks of anesthesia training. It can also serve as a medical student's accompaniment for a two-week anesthesia elective.

Inside the Assassination Records Review Board, Volume III (3 Of 5)

VOLUME 3 of 5: Douglas Horne served on the staff of the Assassination Records Review Board (ARRB) during the final 3 years of its 4-year lifespan, from 1995 to 1998, and is the first U.S. government official involved with the medical evidence to allege a coverup in President Kennedy's autopsy, and in the creation of the autopsy photos and x-rays. This book, the product of over 13 years of writing and research, provides the best explanation yet offered of the true nature of the medical coverup in the assassination of JFK, and does so in meticulous detail, with scrupulous use of primary source material. It incorporates the latest information---much of it new evidence not revealed elsewhere---gleaned from the ARRB's depositions and interviews of medical witnesses. With precise accuracy, and with a relentless focus on the massive fraud uncovered in the official records of the 35th President's assassination, Horne presents a persuasive case that the assassination of JFK was an "inside job," a true coup d'etat in America, that was ruthlessly and brazenly covered up by those who 'broke the back of the American century' in Dallas on November 22, 1963. IN VOLUME THREE, THE AUTHOR RELATES THE IMPORTANCE OF THE OBSERVATIONS OF THE TWO FBI AGENTS WHO WERE PRESENT AT JFK'S AUTOPSY; REVISITS THE CRUCIAL OBSERVATIONS OF THE DALLAS TREATING PHYSICIANS WHO SAW PRESIDENT KENNEDY'S WOUNDS AT PARKLAND HOSPITAL (BEFORE THEY WERE LATER SURGICALLY ALTERED, AT BETHESDA NAVAL HOSPITAL, IN AN ATTEMPT TO CHANGE HISTORY); AND EXPLAINS IN DETAIL HOW INDIVIDUALS WITHIN THE U.S. GOVERNMENT CORRUPTED THE CASE BY PLACING FRAUD IN THE EVIDENCE. THE MEDICAL EVIDENCE IN THE CASE WAS HOPELESSLY TAINTED BY THE INSERTION OF DECEPTIVE PHOTOGRAPHS OF A SUBSTITUTE BRAIN INTO THE OFFICIAL RECORD; BY REWRITING THE AUTOPSY REPORT; AND THROUGH THE CREATION OF AN INTENTIONALLY DISHONEST AND MISLEADING COLLECTION OF AUTOPSY PHOTOGRAPHS AND X-RAYS.
