The essential handbook for anaesthetists, both junior and experienced, for trainees sitting exams, as well as ODPs and nurses involved in theatre area work and pre-assessment.

The bestselling Oxford Handbook of Anaesthesia has been completely updated for this new third edition. All chapters have been rewritten and a number of new authors have been brought on board to add their expertise and knowledge. Additional new material includes regional anaesthesia, and a comprehensive section on anaesthesia for interventional radiology, a rapidly expanding field of medical practice with particular implications for anaesthesia.

Key sections cover preoperative issues affecting the administration of anaesthesia and techniques employed in the individual surgical specialties. The book provides practical advice covering the impact of medical disease on anaesthesia, and separate comprehensive sections on paediatric and obstetric anaesthesia are also included.

The management of emergencies arising during anaesthesia is fully covered with helpful action plans and algorithms throughout. Uncommon conditions and their management are included, and there is an extensive drug formulary and guide to infusion drugs.
