Book Description

The ability to carry out a wide variety of practical procedures safely and capably is vital for any doctor engaged in the practice of intensive and anaesthesia care. Junior doctors particularly are now called upon to achieve competence in many invasive practical procedures in a progressively short space of time; whilst also comprehending the theory behind them.

Practical Procedures in Anaesthesia and Critical Care (PDF) is the only guide needed to the techniques and procedures commonly used in anaesthesia and critical care medicine. Step-by-step; it clearly describes each technique and procedure; allowing the reader to fully understand how and why they are done. Full colour photographs show each technique; and each chapter covers the same essential information: definition; indications; complications; equipment; contraindications; sites; and technique; for ease of use.

This ebook will be used by all junior trainees in anesthesia; alongside junior doctors from other specialties working in intensive care units. It will also be beneficial to any senior anaesthetist who wishes to refresh or update their knowledge; and also anyone working in the emergency ward who executes any of these procedures.

NOTE: The product includes the ebook; Practical Procedures in Anaesthesia and Critical Care in PDF. No access codes are included.
