Smith and Aitkenhead's Textbook of Anaesthesia , 7th Edition

Edited by Jonathan Thompson, Iain Moppett and Matthew Wiles
NT$3,900 NT$3,510

This highly successful textbook is internationally renowned as a core text for trainee anaesthetists and is essential reading for candidates for the Fellowship of Royal College of Anaesthetists and similar examinations. The previous 6th edition was awarded First Prize at the BMA Medical Book awards.

The book provides full coverage of the sciences underpinning practice in anaesthesia, critical care and pain management together with details of clinical anaesthesia and perioperative care. In combining these aspects, a generation of anaesthetists have found the textbook invaluable during the first few years of training as well as when preparing for the FRCA and similar professional examinations.

The goal for this Seventh Edition has remained to equip the reader with the basic knowledge and practical considerations required to administer anaesthesia and perioperative care for a whole range of surgical conditions in patients with all common medical comorbidities. Reflecting the expanding role of anaesthesia beyond the operating theatre it also includes essential material related to safety and quality assurance, consent, resuscitation, intensive care medicine, pre-hospital care and chronic pain management.

  • This book's scope includes the full range of clinical practice, from anaesthetic equipment and pre-operative assessment through to post-operative care, local anaesthesia, anaesthesia for individual specialties and the management of chronic pain.
  • The text covers the principles of pharmacology, anaesthetic agents and physics for the anaesthetist.

"This book has my unreserved recommendation. I would happily use it myself and recommend it to anyone. It is aimed at a doctor in training but useable by any anaesthetist as it is almost like a 'bible of anaesthesia'. This is an outstanding, relevant, comprehensive, expert book. It is very useful for current practice and an excellent source of reference. A must have in every anaesthetic department."
