9780198566090: Oxford Handbook of Anaesthesia (Oxford Handbooks Series)

The Oxford Handbook of Anaesthesia has been completely updated for the second edition. All chapters have been rewritten and a number of new expert authors have been brought on board. Additional new material includes anaesthesia for the critically ill, and a comprehensive section on anaesthetic risk including anaesthetic risk tables. The first section deals with preoperative issues affecting the administration of anaesthesia. Practical advice is provided covering the impact of medical disease on anaesthesia. The second section describes practical anaesthetic techniques for surgical specialties, including most subspecialties such as thoracic and neuroanaesthesia. Separate, comprehensive sections on paediatric and obstetric anaesthesia are included. The management of emergencies arising during anaesthesia are fully covered with helpful action plans and algorithms throughout. Uncommon conditions and their management are included, and there is an extensive drug formulary and guide to infusion drugs. As with the first edition, this new edition will be the essential medical handbook for anaesthetists, both junior and experienced, for registrars and those sitting exams, as well as ODPs and nurses involved in theatre area work and pre-assessment. It is the one book for anyone working in anaesthesia to keep to hand at all times!

Review:

`This is a truly remarkable handbook in the practice of anaesthesia. The second edition is even more user-friendly than the first...All in all, this handbook excels...It is especially well-suited for the trainee anaesthetist, but the senior anaesthetist will also find the information useful. If there is one book I carry with me to work daily, it is this one.' British Journal of Hospital Medicine

`Trainees will find this handbook useful for dipping into during their clinical practice, when faced with a procedure or problem they have not come across before. It represents good value for money.' British Journal of Anaesthesia

`This handbook is exceptional value... it is going to be much sought after in many different parts of the world... It should be in every theatre and of course every library and I am sure it will become the personal property of many busy anaesthetists in many parts of the English speaking world.' Update in Anaesthesia

`Being an expert in anaesthesia and having a unique knack of placing people in a deep sleep that they barely can remember, I initially thought there was not much this book could really teach me. Well I was sorely mistaken.' Barts and the London Chronicle

`This book is a must for the novice anaesthetist. It lays out everything, and I mean everything, in a structured format. When you're on call and not sure how to approach a case, this book will tell you how... If you [are] thinking should I buy this book? Then don't think just buy it, you won't be disappointed.' Doctor from Surrey, on Amazon.co.uk

`Whatever the reason, we all have qualms about our anaesthetic abilities being challenged and found wanting. Our first impulse is to seek advice from the local expert. With the Oxford Handbook of Anaesthesia in the change-room locker (it's half-life on a bookshelf would be a matter of hours!) there is expert advice available at any hour.' Anaesthesia and Intensive Care

`This is the most comprehensive handbook I have encountered... This is a book with strong applicability for trainees and experienced clinicians. I expect to continue to use it frequently.' Canadian Journal of Anaesthesia

`This is an exceptional book, which I believe will become the anaesthetists 'Bible'.' Anaesthesia

`As the name suggests, the book is relatively compact, but still packs a punch.' GKT Surgical Society Website
