Ward's Anaesthetic Equipment familiarizes the anesthetic trainee very thoroughly with anesthesia and intensive care equipment and it remains the recommended text for Parts II, III and the final FRCA and FFARCSI exams. The newest edition has been completely updated and revised to ensure the close integration of the physical principles and clinical applications of equipment throughout the text. It is the only comprehensive equipment textbook based on UK equipment and practice. This is a comprehensive and highly practical one-stop source of information on the latest anesthetic and intensive care equipment currently in use. Key points and key references are included in every chapter and the text has been rewritten to be very clear and concise. Provides the trainee with a very accessible source of information to aid in the understanding of the basic and more advanced key principles behind equipment and design. Extensively and painstakingly cross-referenced by an experienced author that ensures easy access to consistent, related information. Ward's has been expanded to include intensive care and advanced monitoring equipment in greater detail as well as an expansion of the growing practice of TIVA (total intravenous anesthesia) written with the new syllabus of the FRCA and FFARCSI (Fellowship of the Royal College of Anesthetists and Fellowship of the Irish College of Anesthetists) in mind. Four color photographs throughout Manufacturer's diagrams and schematics simplified and carefully explained to the reader. With 10 additional contributors.
First prize winner, Anesthesia Book Category, British Medical Association 2012 Medical Book Competition Provides a simple and comprehensive explanation of the function of anaesthetic equipment, ensuring its safe use in clinical practice Covers the relevant syllabus required by the FRCA and similar exams taken by trainee anaesthetists Clear line diagrams explain the working principles of each piece of equipment Chapter on local anaesthesia totally rewritten Chapter on error and man-machine interaction will be much more in depth New chapter on patient warming
The newest edition of this practical and comprehensive guide to the working principles of modern anesthetic equipment. The 4th Edition has been completely updated and revised to ensure the close integration of the physical principles and clinical applications of equipment throughout the text. Also features numerous new or redrawn figures and illustrations.
This work offers guidance on the principles behind the working of anaesthetic equipment. In particular, it aims to help anaesthetists and trainees, nurses and theatre technicians to understand the limitations of anaesthetic equipment and to use it safely.
The MGH Textbook of Anesthetic Equipment by Warren Sandberg, MD, Richard Urman, MD, and Jesse Ehrenfeld, MD, provides expert coverage on the latest and best anesthetic equipment. Technology-driven changes, together with the high risks associated with anesthesia delivery, require that you understand everything from physics fundamentals to special situations to troubleshooting so you can safely and effectively use all the equipment and instrumentation in today’s operating rooms. This one-stop, full-color reference, edited by an expert team from Massachusetts General Hospital, skillfully brings you up to speed. Ensure your patients receive the best care possible with excellent coverage of all monitoring techniques including transesophageal echocardiography. Improve patient safety with information on temperature monitoring and control. Update your knowledge of emergency room airway equipment to ensure the best results. Decide which equipment is best suited for anesthesia delivery both inside and outside the hospital.
This text covers all equipment and details of usage at the level of the FRCAnaes exam, Part 1. Each piece of equipment is supported by a short description and brief comments on its applications. All illustrations are accompanied by explanatory line drawings.
Essentials of Anaesthetic Equipment gives a concise, easy to understand description of equipment and its use in anaesthesia, intensive care and pain relief. Written to provide the trainee anaesthetist with an attractive and modern introductory textbook of the equipment which is in current usage, it is superbly illustrated with colour photographs and simple diagrams. A glossary is included to define the large vocabulary of technical terminology. Anaesthetic and intensive care nurses and operating theatre practitioners will also find the book of value.
The Handbook of Clinical Anaesthesia has been completely updated for this new edition, providing trainee anaesthetists with a concise but comprehensive source of clinical information, and qualified anaesthetists with an indispensable aide. Written and edited by experts in the field, this compact but detailed text provides all the essential practical knowledge required by anaesthetists on co-existing medical conditions, operative procedures, and techniques. The handbook is presented in Parts 1 to 3. The first part covers Patient Conditions; the second part Surgical Procedures; and the third part Anaesthetic Factors. Each part is subdivided into sections on each organ system, and each section is divided into chapters. These chapters are in alphabetical order, and cover all common and rare conditions that anaesthetists will encounter within their practice.Trainees will find this book to be an excellent general guide, but in particular a provider of reliable information in preparation for examination as well as teaching clinical technique and practice.
A good knowledge of physics, measurement and equipment is essential for practicing anaesthetists. The subject does, however, present considerable problems for many, few of whom have any background in physics. This book explains the physical principles and applications of physics in anaesthsia, covering the statistical methods that anaesthetists are required to understand. The book includes sections on equipment and safety in anaesthesia, and electrical safety. The book starts with mathematics, statistics and a basic physics background, not only to enhance the understanding for what follows in the book, but also because these basic sciences are fundamental to many other aspects of medical science. Areas which trainees find particularly troublesome, such as electricity and electrical safety, are discussed in detail. The book will also be of interest to trainee anaesthetics, operating department assistants, hospital based biomedical engineers and medical physicists, manufacturers' representatives and those involved in the manufacture, marketing and use of anaesthetic equipment.
