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.

Anaesthesiologists regularly administer potent, and potentially toxic, drugs that profoundly interfere with fundamental physiological functions such as breathing, cardiac output, blood pressure, the protective reflexes and the perception of pain. Reviewing all aspects of human physiology, Physiology for Anaesthesiologists provides a working knowledge of physiological principles and their application to anaesthesia and intensive care. The text covers the various systems of the human body, from the central nervous system to the liver and kidneys. The reader gains an understanding not only of each system discussed, but also of how each of those physiological systems interact with each other. The section on pain, for example, explains how the body warns of dysfunction in one or more systems. In addition to covering the core material for professional examinations, some topics not usually dealt with in textbooks for anaesthetists are also covered, such as the impact of anaesthesia and surgery on the immune system. Written in a clear and concise style, the book supplies up-to-date information to trainees in anaesthesiology and related specialities preparing for professional examinations: both editors have a wealth of experience in these subjects. The book also helps established anaesthesiologists, and those in other related specialities, who want to keep up with recent developments in the field.

Arriving in the anaesthetic room for the first time can be a daunting experience. You will be closely supervised, but everything will seem very new. Surgery is a stressful life-event for the patient and your job as an anaesthetist is to make it as safe and as comfortable as you can whilst ensuring the best outcome possible. Anaesthesia is no longer the preserve of the medical anaesthetist. It increasingly features in undergraduate and postgraduate healthcare education, and many of the competencies required need to be attained quickly, in conjunction with new drugs and equipment. This guide provides practical and clinically relevant advice in easily understandable sections to give you confidence and prepare you for your days in theatre - without the complicated physiology, pharmacology and physics. It allows you to understand the most common drugs and provides a rationale for using them. It's the perfect quick, clinical reference for dealing with common problems and emergencies; ideal for everyday use. This book is invaluable for anaesthetists starting out in their career, but is also highly recommended for Foundation, ACCS, ICM trainees, medical students, operating department trainees and nurses. It also provides an excellent revision basis for Primary FRCA candidates. 'This book provides the basic background and ground rules for how anaesthetists work, how they approach a problem and how one can prepare for it. Some of the initial chapters could be usefully read by all surgeons, especially those in Foundation Training posts, and medical students considering an anaesthetic or intensive placement. The use of lists, key points and limited use of references help make the book easy to read, or dip into between cases, and keep it a manageable size whilst still providing a mine of information for the target audience.'

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.

From reviews: "Its warm and familiar style of writing makes it accessible for all. Throughout each of the 29 chapters, there was a real feel that the authors knew what was needed of you... Many of the questions I spent hours flicking through appendices in other books for were clearly answered here.... There is a nice feel to this book. It is as if someone has sat down and really thought about each chapter. It feels more like your clever friend than a textbook. Current curriculums have been considered, as have common themes and questions... In conclusion, although I have always believed that examination topics, with all randomness and occasional obscurity, can and never will be fully covered by a solo text, this book comes close. It is an excellent core text for anyone needing to learn physics in anaesthesia." European Journal of Anaesthesiology, April 2014 "Overall, Physics in Anaesthesia succeeds in providing a concise and easy to read review text covering what has historically been a dry and difficult to present topic. The book is easy to understand and sufficiently covers most topics one would expect from such a book. It seems well suited for those studying for exams, but it can also serve as a good reference text for all levels of anesthesia providers." Anesthesiology, September 2013 "This is an excellent refreshing and practical text when compared with various older textbooks on physics for anesthesia.... The text is written in a concise, uncomplicated, and easily understood manner, and representative clinical scenarios are often used.... In my view, this is a superb teaching textbook on basic physics.... I would recommend this textbook to our Anesthesia Post-Graduate Program!" Canadian Journal of Anesthesia (2012) 59: 1161–1162 "...a refreshing change from the more traditional textbooks with their pages of derivations and small, bland, obscure figures..." Technic: The Journal of Operating Department Practice, May 2012 Volume Issue 3 "...this text provides a fantastic resource for those wishing to consolidate their learning... A major strength of this book is its clear writing style. The well organised text is supported by excellent diagrams and highlighted key terms. There are clear learning objectives at the beginning of each chapter, with a short summary and a multiple choice question test at the end... Overall, this is an excellent resource and essential revision tool." Nursing Standard, June 2012, 30: vol. 26 no. 41 "This is a book specifically for anesthesia professionals written by Anesthetists, Physicists and Perfusionists. After reading the book cover to cover I can say without reservation, it is most certainly the easiest book on physics I have ever read. The simple and intuitive layout, easy to understand diagrams, relevant objectives and the quizzes at the end of each chapter help me expand my understanding of topics I was already a master of. That is saying something. This book is not just a 'must have' for students of anesthesia and any prospective anesthesia students looking to brush up before training but also for the working Nurse Anesthetists as a quick and easy to use reference." www.nurse-anesthesia.org, June 2012 Physics in Anaesthesia caters especially for those who consider themselves non-physicists. It covers the FRCA syllabus in an informative and accessible way from the very basics, and provides an important link between theory and practice. Worked examples highlight the relevance to clinical practice, and along with graphs and charts, make the basics of physics understandable not only to doctors, but also to operating department practitioners and students. It does not assume that readers will have A level physics. Two different types of self-assessment questions at the end of each chapter will test understanding of the key concepts, while a summary section for each topic is ideal as a rapid refresher, highlighting any problem areas.
