The 3rd edition of this popular resource is an invaluable study tool for certification and recertification as well as a superb way to ensure mastery of all of the key knowledge in anesthesiology. Nearly 1,000 review questions cover everything from the basic sciences to general anesthesia and subspecialty considerations, with an emphasis on the most important and clinically relevant principles. All of the questions have been pre-tested on residents at the Mayo Clinic to ensure that they are comparable in difficulty and content to those encountered when taking the boards. For every question, readers will not only find the correct answer and an explanation, but also page references to major anesthesia texts―making it easy to find more information on any subject.

  • Offers completely updated questions and references throughout―reflecting the latest discoveries and techniques in physics, biochemistry, and anesthesia equipment · the newest drugs and drug categories · and the most recent information on respiratory physiology and critical care; pediatric physiology and anesthesia; anatomy, regional anesthesia, and pain management; cardiovascular physiology and anesthesia; and more!
  • Includes coverage of new pain management drugs such as Cox-2 inhibitors, gabapentin (Neurontin), tramadol, capsaicin, and additives to spinal anesthetics, plus new drugs used in cardiac anesthesia and critical care medicine, including fenoldopam, ibutilide, dopexamine, and dexmedetomidine.
  • Presents entirely new questions regarding side effects and complications of regional anesthesia · recognition and treatment of dysthymias · anesthetic implications of non-anesthetic drugs · perioperative management of cerebral perfusion pressure, serum glucose concentration, temperature, corticosteroids, and intervenous fluids · outpatient anesthesia and treatment of nausea and vomiting · complications of anesthetic drugs · and many other essential topics.

About the Author:

Brian A Hall, MD, Mayo Clinic, Rochester, Minnesota; and Robert C. Chantigian, MD, Associate Professor of Anesthesiology, Department of Anesthesiology, Mayo Clinic, Rochester, MN

Review:

“At the onset of Anesthesia, A Comprehensive Review, 3rd Ed., Hall and Chantigian state a clear purpose to their text, namely ‘to identify areas of weakness so that the reader can focus on appropriate topics’ (Preface, p. V). Given the breadth of information review, Hall and Chantigian easily meet their goal.
