Basic Physiology for Anaesthetists, Paperback / softback Book



Every trainee in anaesthesia requires a thorough understanding of basic physiology and its application to clinical practice.

Now in its second edition, this comprehensively illustrated textbook bridges the gap between medical school and reference scientific texts.

It covers the physiology requirements of the Primary FRCA examination syllabus.

Chapters are organised by organ system, with particular emphasis given to the respiratory, cardiovascular and nervous systems.

The practical question-and-answer format helps the reader prepare for oral examinations, while 'clinical relevance' boxes translate the physiological concepts to clinical practice.

This new edition has been thoroughly updated and revised throughout, and includes six new chapters, including the physiology of the eye, upper airway and exercise testing.

It provides junior anaesthetists with an essential 'one stop' physiology resource.
