About this book

Anesthesia Student Survival Guide: A Case-Based Approach is an indispensable introduction to the specialty. This concise, easy-to-read, affordable handbook is ideal for medical students, nursing students, and others during the anesthesia rotation. Written in a structured prose format and supplemented with many diagrams, tables, and algorithms, this pocket-sized guide contains essential material covered on the USMLE II-III and other licensing exams. The editors, who are academic faculty at Harvard Medical School, summarize the essential content with 32 informative and compelling case studies designed to help students apply new concepts to real situations. Pharmacology, basic skills, common procedures and anesthesia subspecialties are covered, too, with just the right amount of detail for an introductory text. The unique book also offers a section containing career advice and insider tips on how to receive good evaluations from supervising physicians. With its combination of astute clinical instruction, basic science explanation, and practical tips from physicians that have been there before, this handbook is your one-stop guide to a successful anesthesia rotation.

Reviews

From the reviews:

“Provide an appropriate introduction to the foundations and clinical practice of anesthesia … . The authors review material … appropriate for their target audience of third-year medical students and make good use of clinical cases to reinforce key concepts and demonstrate the clinical relevance of material. … This is an excellent introduction to the specialty for third-year medical students, covering a broad range of material at a sufficient depth to be useful, and providing a good structure for a comprehensive course of self-directed study … .” (Martin D. Chen, Doody’s Review Service, August, 2010)

“The book is aimed at medical students, who frequently spend a brief period within the speciality, and comprises seven sections subdivided into 32 chapters. … There are a good number of photographs, illustrations, and tables. … this book would be an excellent resource for the student wanting a deeper understanding of what is essentially a post-graduate subject, for example, an elective student. … the book is predominantly aimed at a readership training within a very different health-care environment.” (S. Webber, British Journal of Anaesthesia, Vol. 106 (3), March, 2011)

“An introductory text and basic reference source for students who are new to the specialty of anesthesia. … The writing style is uniformly strong, which makes the book easy to read. … serves not only as an excellent resource for students and other learners seeking an introduction to anesthesia but also as a platform for teaching the basics. It will be a welcome addition to the libraries of teaching departments, and it is best approached as a book to be read as complete chapters.”­­­ (John Fuller, Canadian Journal of Anesthesia, Vol. 57, 2010)
