This textbook covers the basic sciences of physics and pharmacology, as well as anaesthesia for all the specialized fields of surgery. Although the practice of anaesthesia can only be perfected by administering anaesthesia to patients, this publication covers the theoretical knowledge that determines to a large extent the quality of practical skill. In addition, it includes in-theatre instruction vital to safe anaestheticpractice. Twenty one chapters contain a stand-alone account of specific anaesthesia of each particular physical system. Material is structured to include clinical features, pathophysiology, diagnostic tests and preoperative assessment, anaesthetic implications and complication, techniques, monitoring,management and post-operative care. Covering ideal, complex and emergency conditions, the advantages and disadvantages of various terchniques are set out to enable the practitioner to come to an informed decision.
