The anaesthetist plays an essential role in many areas of medical care, being involved in preoperative assessment of the patient as well as throughout the surgical procedures themselves, and then afterwards in post-operative recovery, in critical and high-dependency care and also in the arena of emergency medicine and pain management. The anaesthetist’s contribution to the larger medical care team is founded on a detailed knowledge of the uses of a variety of anaesthetic and analgesic agents, and the means by which they may be adminstered, and their effects in different circumstances. As our understanding of these techniques continues to increase and expand, so too does the knowledge base that clinicians must have at their command. In this volume an international team of experts present informed commentaries on the latest developments, drawing upon the recent published literature to highlight those of special relevance to the busy clinician.
Specialists in anaesthesia, surgery, critical and intensive care, emergency medicine and pain management
