Product Description

Review

"This is a book specifically for anesthesia professionals written by Anesthetists, Physicists and Perfusionists. After reading the book cover to cover I can say without reservation, it is most certainly the easiest book on physics I have ever read. The simple and intuitive layout, easy to understand diagrams, relevant objectives and the quizzes at the end of each chapter help me expand my understanding of topics I was already a master of. That is saying something. This book is not just a 'must have' for students of anesthesia and any prospective anesthesia students looking to brush up before training but also for the working Nurse Anesthetists as a quick and easy to use reference." --www.nurse-anesthesia.org, June 2012

"With its sole focus on the laws of physics needed for a better understanding and working knowledge of anesthesia techniques, this is a unique book. The topics are covered concisely and simply. The book is extremely easy to read, making going through a topic a fun exercise." --Doody, May 2013

"Its warm and familiar style of writing makes it accessible for all. Throughout each of the 29 chapters, there was a real feel that the authors knew what was needed of you... Many of the questions I spent hours flicking through appendices in other books for were clearly answered here.... There is a nice feel to this book. It is as if someone has sat down and really thought about each chapter. It feels more like your clever friend than a textbook. Current curriculums have been considered, as have common themes and questions... In conclusion, although I have always believed that examination topics, with all randomness and occasional obscurity, can and never will be fully covered by a solo text, this book comes close. It is an excellent core text for anyone needing to learn physics in anaesthesia." --European Journal of Anaesthesiology, April 2014

Format: Paperback
Revising for fellowship exams i always felt there was lack of single source that covered the whole course. I think this book fills the vacuum that existed. Statistics is easily the best chapter i have come across for anaesthetic exams. This book can prove to be a wonderful source for anybody associated with anaesthetics who wants to read, revise or simply brush up on forgotten facts from years gone by.

I'm an anaesthetic trainee and I am finding this book very helpful. Explains everything in a very easy way to understand without being too wordy. Important equations are highlighted and there are "Clinical applications" boxes throughout to put the information into context. Very pleased with this book. Nice size for my handbag too so I can read it on long journeys etc

Format: Paperback
Firstly let me state that this review is based on a sample copy I received from the publisher for review purposes but that this review will be unbiased and honest. I am a senior lecturer for a DipHE ODP course and I also run the post registration anaesthetic modules for our degree students. I regularly teach physics to ODP's and theatre nurses. I was therefore asked to review this book.

This is without a doubt the most understandable anaesthetic physics book I have come accross and I have read and own most of them. The book is clearly laid out and written in an easy to understand language and style. Diagrams, charts and figures are used apprpriately to help explain many key concepts. I do like the authors' use of analogies for some of the topics. For example, they explain viscosity by comparing pouring treacle to pouring milk etc and then discuss why there are differences (I wont spoil it for you but it does go a little deeper). They then take this further to explain how these concepts affect blood flow for example(amongst other things).

I dont think we will ever see the ideal phsyics book for anaesthesia and this book also requires the reader to at least have a very basic understanding of science to around average GCSE level in order to get the most out of it in my opinion. Having said that it is the simplest and easiest to understand book on this topic I have read but thats not to say that it is light on information. It covers subjects to a fairly deep level. Certainly deep enough for any ODP or theatre nurse as well as FRCA primary level so good for all you FY2's out there.

My only criticism would be that the maths chapter is a little light and only briefly skims topics but then what would you expect! Maths can fill whole books by itself.

Useful questions at the end of each section that are clearly geared towards FRCA MCQ/SBA. The layout can be a bit busy but the content is clearly written and it is as exhaustive as any book gets in this field. overall, worth buying.

Great for the part 1 FRCA, really practical and relevant info, well worth the money! MCQs and SBA at the end of each chapter, perfect. Was dreading reading about physics, but in the end it was a pleasure to read.

This is an excellent textbook for anaesthetists studying for the FRCA. Covers everything in the syllabus. Clear and concise diagrams and explainations. I will be recommending this book to my trainees.

Good revision, and a good start for physics novices. (I need 11 more words otherwise I can't submit this review)

Very good, simple terminology compared to other physics FRCA primary texts, and covers the required topics.
