About the Authors
  • Applied Anatomy for Anaesthesia and Intensive Care is an invaluable tool for trainee and practised anaesthetists and intensive care physicians seeking to learn, revise and develop their anatomical knowledge and procedural skills. Concise textual descriptions of anatomy are integrated with descriptions of procedures that are frequently performed in anaesthesia and intensive care, such as nerve blocks, focussed echo, lung ultrasound, vascular access procedures, front of neck airway access and chest drainage. The text is supported by over 200 high-quality, colour, anatomical illustrations, which are correlated with ultrasound, fibre optic and radiological images, allowing the reader to easily interpret nerve block sonoanatomy, airway fibre optic images and important features on CT and MRI scans. Useful mnemonics and easily reproducible sketch diagrams make this an essential resource for anyone studying towards postgraduate examinations in anaesthesia and intensive care medicine.

    • A must-have revision guide for anyone preparing to sit postgraduate examinations in anaesthesia or intensive care medicine, such as FRCA, FFICM, European Diploma in Regional Anaesthesia, European Diploma in Anaesthesiology and Intensive Care, and USA Anesthesiology or Critical Care Board Examinations
    • Procedures are described using landmark, nerve stimulator and ultrasound approaches, helping readers to learn new approaches to traditional techniques
    • Anatomical illustrations are directly correlated to clinical images to aid interpretation and assist in identification of key anatomical structures
