About the Authors
  • The third edition of Fundamentals of Anaesthesia is the gold standard text, encapsulating the basic principles of modern anesthesia in one easily accessible volume. Written and edited by a team of expert contributors with extensive FRCA examination experience, Fundamentals of Anaesthesia, Third Edition deliberately blends the expertise of invited authors in an unrivalled consistency of style. Deliberate use of authors with a more general anesthesia background ties in well with the education of anesthetists in their early years. The third edition is fully updated with a number of completely new chapters. Presentation of information is clear and concise, with extensive use of tables, colour illustrations, summary boxes of key information and bullet lists. This Highly Commended award winning textbook is a unique revision aid and an essential companion for all exam candidates.

    • Complete coverage of the Primary FRCA exam syllabus
    • The FRCA syllabus is included and cross-referred to the relevant content for quick access when revising
    • New sections of physics

    Reviews & endorsements

    "Although targeted at postgraduate students in anesthesia, the book also would be very helpful for medical students doing an anesthesia clerkship....This excellent review of the basics of clinical anesthesia provides all the necessary basic scientific information needed for a good understanding of general and regional anesthesia. At the same time, it covers all the basic human physiology and pharmacology of anesthesia drugs needed for the conduct of general anesthesia."
