Product Description:
 
Essential Anesthesia is a concise, accessible introduction to anesthetic practice. Now in its second edition, it provides a thorough overview of the science and practice of anesthesia. Part I describes the evaluation of the patient, the different approaches to anesthesia, and the post-operative care of the patient in pain. Part II introduces the essentials of physiology and pharmacology and their role in understanding the principles of anesthesia. The final part presents a step-by-step description of 14 clinical cases.

These clinical vignettes give a very real introduction to the practicalities of anesthesia and will give the non-anesthetist physician an idea of how to prepare a patient for a surgical procedure. All chapters have been expanded and updated and an entirely new chapter on safety in healthcare has been added. This is the perfect introductory text for medical students, junior doctors and all operating theatre and critical care staff.

4.0 out of 5 stars.  Great little reference, July 16, 2013
By lnb1029
Great, quick, detailed reference to have in your bag. Not a main go-to book for anesthesia, but definitely has a place as a reference when you need to look up something quick.

5.0 out of 5 stars.  Excellent introductory book with surprising depth, February 22, 2013
By A Customer
I have read both the paperback and Kindle version of this book. I found it to be excellent pre-reading prior to my first stint in anaesthesia (as an ICU trainee), and have referred back to it quite often. It is easy to read, and gives an excellent broad overview of how to give a good anaesthetic. The depth was just right - i learnt more than I expected regarding areas such as the circle system from this book, which made life much easier on my first day on the job. Highly recommended.

3.0 out of 5 stars.  Could help you teach medical students in theatre, November 20, 2012
By W. Reid
I thought it was an introductory text, but it reads more like the transcript of an in theatre medical student tutorial. Very verbose and not organized like a handbook or textbook.

2.0 out of 5 stars.  Medical Student Text, November 01, 2009
By Devin Branstetter
After reading two favorable reviews I purchased this book for my Kindle (Please Amazon publish more Anesthesia texts on Kindle). I quickly read through this book realizing early that the depth of the text was on par with medical student level education. If the "Baby Miller" (Miller and Soelting's Basics of anesthesia) is held as the the basic text for CA1 (Clinical Anesthesia year 1) residents, then this book falls far far short. Any CA1 or even intern depending on this book to get them introduced to anesthesia is behind the power curve and needs to reconsider their chosen profession. On the other hand medical students who would like an introduction to the basics of anesthesia may want borrow this book from the library.
