This is a concise, accessible introduction to the essentials of anesthesia, suitable for medical students, junior doctors, nurse anesthetists, and all operating theatre staff. It provides a brief, broad overview of the science and practice of anesthesia without overwhelming the reader with intimidating detail. The first section of the book describes the evaluation of the patient, the different approaches to anesthesia, and the postoperative care of the patient in pain. The next section introduces the essentials of physiology and pharmacology and their role in understanding the principles of anesthesia. The final section presents a step by step description of clinical cases, ranging from the simplest to the most complex. 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.

Review:

'This book is sufficiently brief and succinct to be of interest to its targeted audience. At the same time it is sufficiently comprehensive and lucid to retain the lay person's interest, and impart a meaningful understanding of the practice and scope of anesthesiology. ... very well written and most appropriate for its intended audience. I recommend this book highly to medical students, junior doctors, and medical professionals in other disciplines who wish to acquire a good grasp of the essentials of anesthesiology.' Canadian Journal of Anesthesia

'... 'a very short history of anesthesia' with just the right amount and substance of information to stir the interest of the curious reader, and sets the tone for this useful and concise introduction to the speciality. ... In their Preface, the authors declare that this primer 'is a concise, accessible introduction to the essentials of anesthesia suitable for medical students, junior doctors and all operating theater staff.' In this respect the authors have more than succeeded.' Hong Kong Medical Journal
