The aim of this well–established text is to provide a comprehensive, scientific account of pharmacology and a guide to the use of drugs is it relates to the practice of clinical anaesthesia. It is of considerable value to candidates sitting the FRCA examination, but will also be of use to any practicing anaesthetist wanting to brush up on his or her pharmacology knowledge. The book is now in its fourth edition and all chapters have been thoroughly updated with these aims in mind. A conscious decision has been made to shorten the book by approximately 100 pages so that it remains a concise and useable reference. The first five chapters cover the fundamental principles of pharmacology, including the pharmacokinetics, drug interactions and variability in drug response. The authors successfully cover these potentially dry subjects in a very readable and user–friendly way. The rest of the text is devoted to detailed coverage of the classes of drug used in anaethesia. Each of these latter chapters include a discussion of subjects such as chemical and physical properties, effects on the various systems, pharmacokinetics, mode of action, clinical uses, unwanted effects and treatment of adverse reactions. Relevant physiology is also given where appropriate. The broad coverage of this book means that readers do not need to refer to a basic pharmacology or physiology text, but can use this as a primary resource, whether they are studying for a postgraduate examination or just keeping up to date.

Highly commended in the Anaesthesia category of the 2014 BMA Medical Books awards! From reviews: "Altogether, this textbook offers an excellent detailed overview of basic principles, mechanics, and physics of technical equipment used in anaesthesia and intensive care medicine." Critical Care, Feb 2014 "This book is excellent. I have read a number of equipment related books and found most of them stale and filled with minutia. Instead this fresh look at equipment really makes it interesting to read and keeps your attention. With sections that give quick answers to how things work, advantages and disadvantages, in an easy to read format you get exactly what you want to know RIGHT away. In addition the full color photos and well done charts really add to the depth of this book. It is my opinion this may be one of the best books on the market for quick review of anesthesia and critical care equipment. Let's be honest, no one is sitting at home reading equipment books for pleasure so when you NEED the information you likely need it right away. This book does exactly that; easy format, clear and concise information with everything you need to know about a piece of equipment easy to find and within a page or two. I would recommend this to all trainees in anesthesia but also for those providers who like to be prepared in the operating room to deal with any issue that might arise." www.nurse-anesthesia.org, 8 Feb 2014 Equipmentin Anaesthesia and Critical Care specifically follows thesyllabus published by the Royal College of Anaesthetists and is the perfectguide for candidates studying for their FRCA qualifications. Thebook is beautifully illustrated and features high quality colour photographs throughout.The text is engaging and comprehensive, relating each piece of equipment backto its basic physics, mechanics and clinical context. The clear, concise andstandardised format means that information is easy to access and perfect for revision.Every major piece of equipment is featured alongside colour photos,reproducible line diagrams, and information on its uses, how it works, pros andcons, and safety considerations. Theauthors, all senior registrars in anaesthesia and critical care, appreciateexactly what candidates need to know to pass the FRCA exam. They haveidentified and tackled difficult subjects which are often glossed over oromitted in other resources, to produce a book that is comprehensive, engaging andto the point. In addition to FRCA candidates, the book is also suitable foroperating department practitioners, critical care staff, and physicians with aninterest in anaesthesia or critical care.

Principles of Physiology for the Anaesthetist, now in its Third Edition, continues to provide candidates with a "tailor-made" alternative to more general physiology textbooks and delivers information designed and written specifically with the trainee anaesthetist in mind. The book covers the physiology of all major organ systems, with specific emphasis on the nervous, respiratory, and cardiovascular systems. In addition, special sections on the physiology of pain, the physiology of ageing, and the physiological effects of specific environments—all highly relevant to anaesthetic practice—have been incorporated. The third edition builds upon several new features introduced in the last edition: learning objectives, areas for reflection, and a handy summary of physiological equations and tables. Copious diagrams throughout support the text and aid in the understanding of difficult concepts. The authors integrate their teaching experience in physiology into the content to improve the understanding of the fundamentals of human physiology in relation to the work of the anaesthetist. This book will remain an invaluable reference throughout anaesthetic training and beyond, as well as a useful revision aid.

In recent years our understanding of molecular mechanisms of drug action and interindividual variability in drug response has grown enormously. Meanwhile, the practice of anesthesiology has expanded to the preoperative environment and numerous locations outside the OR. Anesthetic Pharmacology: Basic Principles and Clinical Practice, 2nd edition, is an outstanding therapeutic resource in anesthesia and critical care: Section 1 introduces the principles of drug action, Section 2 presents the molecular, cellular and integrated physiology of the target organ/functional system and Section 3 reviews the pharmacology and toxicology of anesthetic drugs. The new Section 4, Therapeutics of Clinical Practice, provides integrated and comparative pharmacology and the practical application of drugs in daily clinical practice. Edited by three highly acclaimed academic anesthetic pharmacologists, with contributions from an international team of experts, and illustrated in full colour, this is a sophisticated, user-friendly resource for all practitioners providing care in the perioperative period.

Every trainee in anaesthesia requires a thorough understanding of basic physiology and its application to clinical practice. This comprehensively illustrated textbook bridges the gap between medical school and reference scientific texts. It covers the physiology requirements of the Primary FRCA examination syllabus. Chapters are organised by organ system, with particular emphasis given to the respiratory, cardiovascular and nervous systems. The practical question-and-answer format helps the reader prepare for the oral examination, while 'clinical relevance' boxes translate the physiological concepts to clinical practice. The authors include two medical physiologists and a Specialty Registrar in anaesthesia, and thereby bring a unique blend of expertise. This ensures that the book is up-to-date, accessible, and pitched appropriately for the trainee anaesthetist. Packed with easily understood, up-to-date and clinically relevant material, this convenient volume provides an essential 'one-stop' resource in physiology for junior anaesthetists.
