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.

“ is both easy to read and concentrate upon. Importantly, one only needs to read a small section at a time to gain relevant information, and interruptions do not disturb one’s flow of thought and learning unduly.

“ anaesthetists, we need to develop our thoughts and reasoning logically. We are very fortunate to have this undertaken for us in such a readable and understandable way... [this book represents] an ideal opportunity to enhance one’s education in anaesthesia and critical care. The breadth of subjects covered will, I am sure, have widespread appeal.”
From the foreword by Peter J Simpson, Frenchay Hospital, Bristol, UK.
