This new edition presents practising and trainee anaesthesiologists with the latest advances and guidelines in their field.

Beginning with an introduction to the history of anaesthesia, basic physics, and medical gases, the following sections cover the anaesthesia machine, airway and monitoring equipment, and apparatus for central neuraxial and regional blocks.

The final chapters discuss interpretation of radiological images, simulators in anaesthesia, maintenance, safety and cleaning; and more.

The second edition has been fully revised to provide up to date information and a clear understanding of practices and techniques for anaesthesia.

The book features clinical photographs and diagrams and includes two interactive DVD ROMs demonstrating and explain day to day anaesthetic procedures.
