Oxford Case Histories in Anaesthesia by , Summary

Based around the core curriculum for specialist trainees, Oxford Case Histories in Anaesthesia contains over 60 clinical cases compiled by expert consultants. The cases comprehensively cover all sub-specialties and a broad range of variations that occur in normal and abnormal physiology, pharmacology and pathology, as well as patient age. The cases have been selected with reference to the revised Curriculum for a Certificate of Completion of Training in Anaesthesia set by the Royal College of Anaesthetists. Each case begins with clear learning outcomes and is mapped to the CCT matrix, greatly aiding those revising for the Final FRCA examination. The cases are presented with a background to the subject area, and a summary of the history and examination findings with relevant investigation results. This is followed by several questions on clinically important aspects of the case with answers and detailed discussion, particularly of the differential management options. Further reading at the end of each case aids future study. As well as those preparing for the Final FRCA, this book will also be of interest for post-fellowship trainees on specialty attachments and those who occasionally have to anaesthetize out with their normal field of practice, for example in subspecialty emergencies or whilst awaiting retrieval teams to arrive for transfer to tertiary care centres.

The Complete Recovery Room Book by Anthea Hatfield,Michael Tronson Summary

The care that a patient receives in the first hours after surgery is crucial to minimizing the risk of complications such as heart attacks, pneumonia, and blood clots. As the patient awakes from their drug-induced coma, it takes time for them to metabolize and excrete these drugs, during which period they remain unable to care for themselves, and at increased risk of harm. The body undergoes extreme physiological assault from pain, hypothermia, hypoxia, acid-base disturbance and shifts in blood volume. The recovery room staff must manage these symptoms in both comatose and physiologically unstable patients, and deal with the immediate post-operative care of surgical patients by attending to drips, drains and dressings. It is an environment where many skills and equipment are brought together, and successful development of these units has significantly reduced the number of deaths from preventable conditions. In helping the patient from the high pressure operating theatre to the wards, nurses, surgeons and anaesthetists will be required to manage day-to-day problems, but also make difficult decisions. Previous editions of this book have established it as the definitive guide to setting-up, equipping, staffing, and administering this acute care unit. It includes basic science such as physiology and pharmacology, specific symptoms including pain and vomiting, and has chapters devoted to the unique post-operative needs of individual types of surgery. This new edition brings this important text up to date, including new material on risk management, administration and quality control; expanded sections on anaesthetic practice and infection prevention; and incorporating the recent developments in pain control, nausea and vomiting, care of children, pregnancy, and care of the cardiac patient.

Anesthesiology: A Problem-Based Learning Approach by Tracey Straker,Shobana Rajan Summary

Linking existing knowledge to new knowledge by presenting it in the form of a case or a problem is a popular and effective educational approach resulting in better retention of the knowledge and improved ability to apply that knowledge to solve real problems. This problem-based learning (PBL) method was introduced into medical education at McMaster University in Ontario, Canada, in 1969. Since then it has been widely incorporated into secondary, undergraduate, and graduate education in a variety of disciplines worldwide. This new volume for the Anesthesiology Problem-Based Learning series reviews topics in general anesthesiology utilizing the PBL approach. Each chapter deals with conditions and problems in anesthesia practice presented as a case stem with questions to encourage critical thinking, followed by an evidence-based discussion and multiple-choice questions for self-assessment. Current in its knowledge of organ systems and management, the text keeps pace with new technology, new drugs, and new surgical techniques coupled with current guidelines for anesthetic management. Cases highlight the practical issues that arise in the operating room and offers solutions for them. The book can be used to review an upcoming clinical case or as a PBL tool. The Stem Case and Key Questions and Discussion sections can serve as the basis for interactive learning experiences for study groups or as a broad yet in-depth clinical review of the specialty for the individual learner. Self-assessment questions can be used as a measure of knowledge acquisition or simply as a question bank to prepare for examinations.
