Short Textbook of Anesthesia (6th Edition)
This sixth edition has been fully revised to present students with the latest advances in anaesthesia. Divided into nine sections, the book begins with the basic concepts of anatomy and physiology, then provides discussion on equipment for anaesthesia, preoperative assessment, airway management, and monitoring. The following sections discuss general and regional anaesthesia, anaesthesia for coexisting diseases in various parts of the anatomy, and subspecialty anaesthetic management such as for laparoscopy, ENT surgery, ophthalmic surgery, trauma and burns, and more. The final chapters cover intensive care management and cardiopulmonary and cerebral resuscitation, with the cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR) guidelines based on American Heart Association (AHA) guidelines. The new edition includes the most recent advances in drugs, equipment and techniques, and features clinical photographs, diagrams and tables to assist learning. Each chapter concludes with a summary of key points for quick revision.
