Physics in Anaesthesia, 2nd edition

Autor Ben Middleton, Justin Phillips, Simon Stacey
en Limba Engleză Paperback – 15 sep 2021

Much of anesthetic practice is underpinned by physics, yet many struggle when studying the subject. This book has been written with the aim of helping those who have long since parted company with physics.
This new edition has been comprehensively updated, but the content remains aligned with the UK FRCA syllabus, making Physics in Anaesthesia ideal for trainee anesthetists, as well as for operating department practitioners and anesthetic nurses. In addition, clinical science and engineering students will appreciate the linking of theory and practice. Physics in Anaesthesia gives a complete and structured overview:

  • Explanations start from first principles
  • Simple everyday examples are used to illustrate core concepts
  • Clinical examples highlight the applications of physics in anesthesia
  • Worked examples and helpful diagrams develop understanding
  • Completely revised MCQs/SBAs now available online with hints and tips, plus answers

Five-star reviews of the previous edition
"This is a superb book and helped me greatly during my Primary FRCA. Easy to read and explains basic concepts really well.”
“I'm an anaesthetic trainee and I am finding this book very helpful… Important equations are highlighted and there are "Clinical applications" boxes throughout to put the information into context.”
Essential book for trainee anaesthetists undertaking primary FRCA, Well written and easy to read.”
“Very good, simple terminology compared to other physics FRCA primary texts, and covers the required topics.”
“Currently revising for the FRCA Primary and
have found this book indispensable. Difficult concepts are explained coherently with easy to understand examples, as well as a key clinical applications.”
“I am a newly qualified ODP and l really find this book very helpful.”
This is a brilliant book that I'd recommend to anyone doing the exam!”
“The illustrations presented are easy to understand and the book has a structure that builds up your knowledge gradually.”
excellent book for all grades of anaesthetist, but particularly for those studying for the FRCA. Useful, too, for ODPs and other anaesthetic practitioners.”
excellent, detailed overview of medical physics, not just for anaesthetists, but for anyone working with medical electronics / medical physics equipment.”
