A Primer of Anesthesia

by Rajeshwari Subramaniam

This book has been written with the primary aim of demystifying anesthesiology and presenting the necessary theory related to pharmacology, equipments and skills in an easy-to-understand manner. The present role of anesthesiologists involves a number of functions, unknown to their predecessors. Anesthesiologists have to know and understand the clinical implications of the patient’s disease and its effect on the conduct of anesthesia. In view of this, the knowledge base of an anesthesiologist has widened. This book will fulfil a great need for source material covering a whole lot of different subjects. The subjects covered have been divided into four main sections covering the preoperative period, intraoperative period, postoperative period and critical care which deal with all the major aspects of an anesthesiologist’s day to day work schedule. Each chapter describes briefly, but clearly the essential theoretical details. Addition of a large number of illustrations, both photographs as well as line drawings, ensure that it is easily understandable even to a fresh medical graduate. The MCQs provided can help the reader check his/her grasp of the subject.
