This book has been written to help candidates sitting their professional examination in anaesthesia in order that they may have at their disposal the detailed anatomical knowledge necessary for the day to day practice of anaesthesia. Unlike a textbook of anatomy, which must cover all parts of the body with equally exhaustive thoroughness, this book concentrates particularly on areas of special relevance to anaesthesia and points out features of practical importance to anaesthetic technique. The text is divided into nine sections; the respiratory pathway, the heart, the vertebral canal, the peripheral nerves; The Autonomic Nervous System; The Cranial Nerves; The Orbit and its contents; The Anatomy of Pain and Zones of Anaesthetic Interest. The eighth edition has fully expanded and updated text; and includes new and improved illustrations.

This book makes learning and remembering applied anatomy as straightforward as possible. Applied Anatomy for the FRCA supplements the knowledge required by trainee anaesthetists appearing for the FRCA exams.
Author: Bobby Krishnachetty
This book covers the anatomical knowledge that trainee anaesthetists who are revising for the Primary and Final FRCA exams will need. The topics covered are derived from the FRCA curriculum and include the most up to date version of past exam questions, in order to ensure targeted and successful exam revision. The content, illustrations and overall layout of this book ensure that common gaps in anatomical knowledge encountered by FRCA trainees are included. The book is divided into sections pertaining to anatomical regions; head and neck, thorax, abdomen, spine, upper and lower limbs. The topics of importance to anaesthetists are presented under 'structures', 'circulation' and 'nervous system' (with relevance to regional anaesthesia). Each topic is extensively researched and presented in a simple format for maximum retention. This book makes learning and remembering applied anatomy as straightforward as possible. It also supplements the knowledge required by trainee anaesthetists appearing for the FRCA exams. Clinical educators will also find it useful in teaching. It serves as a practical reference for anatomical knowledge at any point in an anaesthetist's career.

The fourth edition of this highly successful textbook discusses the practical applications of the various methods of regional anaesthesia, including ultrasound, as well as giving an account of their theoretical aspects. The well-established author team use their experience to provide a practical and stimulating book which reflects everyday clinical activity, supplemented by high definition ultrasound images and schematic diagrams. The book will also discuss the place of regional anaesthesia in current medical practice, particularly with regard to pain processes, ultrasound imaging, and patient outcomes. Regional anaesthesia is a rapidly expanding sub-speciality of anaesthesia: routine provision of long-lasting pain relief and the introduction of real-time ultrasound block has fuelled a demand for cadaver and ultrasound-based anatomy training courses. Thus, it is more important than ever to have a thorough grounding in this exciting subspecialty.

This handbook provides an easily accessible, informative, and palatable guide to this often complex subject. The text is sub-divided into basic sciences, pre-operative assessment, diagnostic procedures, and an anaesthetist's walk-through of key thoracic surgical procedures. It concludes with an emergency section covering thoracic anaesthesia emergencies, critical care, and the thoracic surgical patient, and ends with essential guidance on the relevant practical procedures necessary to manage cases. The text provides an essential reference for the core curriculum of the Fellowship of the Royal College of Anaesthetists and for the day-to-day practice of post fellowship anaesthetists alike. The discussions of the surgical procedures are simple, highlighting the poignant stages that can affect the anaesthetic management of the patient. The authors use the very latest evidence in order to keep the reader up to speed with developments in the field. Whether on-call, running day-to-day lists or working within critical care, this indispensable guidebook will optimise the preparedness of all staff in dealing with any case, whether simple or complex.
