About the Authors
  • Competency in resuscitation is a necessity for most clinical staff, with many attending Advanced Life Support (ALS) courses. Adult and Paediatric ALS: Self-assessment in Resuscitation uses an innovative question-and-answer structure and Resuscitation Council (UK) 2010 Guidelines to provide a complete overview of all aspects of advanced life support and resuscitation in adults and children. Comprising ten chapters of multiple choice questions, diagnostic questions, colour photo questions and comprehensive answers, this resource aids revision of the adult and paediatric ALS syllabus and assists readers in gaining a thorough understanding of all aspects of resuscitation science and practice. Written by a leading resuscitation expert, Adult and Paediatric ALS: Self-assessment in Resuscitation is essential reading for anyone undertaking resuscitation training, beginning training in acute resuscitation specialities or wishing to update their knowledge of advanced life support.

    • Contains the most current recommendations in ALS - the 2010 Resuscitation Council (UK) Guidelines
    • Colour photos aid learning and enable quick association with the actual practice of ALS
    • Questions are based on real-life scenarios, making them highly relevant learning tools

    Reviews & endorsements

    'This book would be a useful quick revision guide for the resuscitation sections of the Primary and Final FRCA examination. In addition, life support instructors or candidates could revise the syllabus in an alternative fashion to life support manuals. It would be particularly helpful for life support candidates who require more practice at multiple-choice questions prior to their written assessment on the course.' Dr Caroline Wilson, Anaesthesia News
