About the Authors
  • Have you struggled to find information on diathermy, ventilation, types of anaesthetic, what the anaesthetist does, or problems with positioning - the little bits other books leave out? If so, then this is the book for you, anaesthetics tailored specifically to the MRCS syllabus. The book is presented in three sections. The first focuses on applied basic sciences for the surgeon. The second discusses perioperative care and specific considerations that arise in the surgical specialties from both the surgical and anaesthetic viewpoint. Each chapter is written by clinical specialists in surgery and anaesthesia, with up-to-date information on topics including damage limitation surgery in trauma, transfusion practice, CPET testing, and enhanced recovery. The third section, 'At a Glance', is written in an easily accessible, brief format for revision or reference. Topics covered include post-operative cognitive dysfunction, coagulation, fluids and scoring systems. This is an essential text for all surgical trainees.

    • Short 'at a glance' chapters are useful for rapid reference and revision, giving readers the information they need about essential topics
    • The Basic Sciences section focuses on important issues for MRCS and FRCS examinations, giving readers a solid grounding in relevant anaesthetic principles
    • Applied chapters have been written by both a consultant surgeon and a consultant anaesthetist, focusing on the surgical specialties as laid-out by the Royal Surgical Colleges, ensuring that the information given is accurate and relevant for surgical trainees
