Essentials Of Anaesthetic Equipment !!LINK!!



Anesthesia equipment is frequently taken for granted by anesthesia trainees. Although we enjoy the use of this technology, many trainees find that learning the details regarding the tools of our trade is a chore; I number myself among them. This is unfortunate, because, arguably, no other specialty requires the practitioner to be adept with such a wide variety of equipment and equipment-related technology. However, my reading of Essentials of Anesthetic Equipment was actually enjoyable! Written with the student of anesthesia in mind, it provides a relatively painless introduction to this sometimes-daunting area.




Essentials of anaesthetic equipment



The book contains 208 high-yield pages, organized into 14 chapters, with information concisely presented. Each chapter contains numerous color pictures, diagrams, and tables that are well chosen to illustrate the salient points. This is especially important in a book describing anesthetic equipment, in which a picture is truly worth a thousand words. The organization of the text is well thought out. Each piece of equipment is introduced in a consistent format that is subdivided by an informative introduction to the equipment, followed by a components section, a mechanism of action section, and, finally, a problems in practice and safety features section. Each chapter then ends with pertinent multiple-choice questions that reinforce important information. Another useful aspect is that the text not only describes but also specifically addresses how to use equipment, such as a commercial retrograde intubation set and a percutaneous tracheostomy kit, in clinical settings. Compared with well-known existing texts dealing with anesthesia equipment, this is not an encyclopedic treatment. Rather, the focus is on the educational presentation of basic principles. Given the sometimes exhaustive, often dry detail presented in other texts with a more referential approach, this is refreshing for the harried trainee.


As a resident nearing the completion of my training, I found that this book helped me gain new insight into the operation of even familiar equipment that I use each day. It also serves as a useful review for examinations, as the book addresses subjects that often find their way into tests, such as electrical safety in the operating room and different types of breathing systems. Although primarily directed toward the trainee, this text would also be of interest to the practicing anesthesiologist who desires a palatable update on this topic.


The long-awaited fourth edition of this popular book has now finally arrived. As anticipated, the book is fully updated to keep up with the rapidly evolving technology of anaesthetic equipment and intensive care. As stated in the title, the book is one of the essential readings for the anaesthetic trainees, as well as their trainers and the operation department practitioners. In addition to the MCQs at the end of each chapter, SBAs are now included which is particularly useful for readers attempting the FRCA examination.


Prepared by authors based in the UK, this highly practical, illustrated guide continues to provide an up-to-date, practical introduction to anaesthetic equipment and its use in clinical practice. An invaluable resource for all those who work with anaesthetic equipment, including anaesthetists studying for the FRCA examinations, nurses and operating department practitioners, this new edition has been completely updated to reflect current equipment and training requirements. Lavishly illustrated throughout with colour photos and clearly-drawn line illustrations plus fully revised self-assessment sections, Essentials of Anaesthetic Equipment, fourth edition, retains the superbly organized and easy-to-read format that has made previous editions such a success.


Easy to read and follow, Essentials of Equipment in Anaesthesia, Critical Care and Perioperative Medicine makes an otherwise dry subject digestible and easy to learn. This practical textbook comprehensively covers all the equipment used in the operating theatre and intensive care unit, including why it is used and any related safety concerns. It has been fully updated in its sixth edition to include new technologies introduced during the Covid-19 pandemic.


This is ideal as the main text for all trainees undertaking the primary FRCA exams and is also suitable anyone who works with anaesthetic equipment, including anaesthetic and intensive care nurses and operating department practitioners. It features concise and consistent text and illustrations, self-assessment features, and exam tips.


Reviews of the previous edition: British Journal of Anaesthesia a valuable source of information for those interested in learning about anaesthetic equipment and how the various types of product operate easy to read, clearly laid out, and well illustrated. Anaesthesia the book covers just about everything you need to know about anaesthetic equipment and there is certainly a need for a book such as this attractive, well written and well laid out, and not hugely expensive I would recommend it as an excellent starting manual for novice anaesthetists, as well as for trainees preparing for their FRCA examinations European Journal of Anaesthesiology well written with excellent illustrations and high production values design is most suitable for those preparing for examinations and for trainers alike authors offer a consistent style that minimizes repetition, while highlighting key points keeps pace with medical innovation in anaesthesiology and should prove a popular text Acta An?sthesiologica Belgica a welcome addition to find its way into the broad and often confusing armamentarium of modern anesthesiologists. warmly welcomed by trainees and teachers alike as it is easy to read, very well illustrated and as a clear and accurate guide to successful techniques.

An anesthetic vaporizer (American English) or anaesthetic vaporiser (British English) is a device generally attached to an anesthetic machine which delivers a given concentration of a volatile anesthetic agent. It works by controlling the vaporization of anesthetic agents from liquid, and then accurately controlling the concentration in which these are added to the fresh gas flow. The design of these devices takes account of varying: ambient temperature, fresh gas flow, and agent vapor pressure.


The monitoring of patients within the perioperative environment has become increasingly sophisticated as technological advances are made within anaesthesia and anaesthetic technique. The contemporary anaesthetic practitioner (AP) is required to prepare an ever mounting array of complex monitoring equipment within their daily routine. For clarification, in this article the abbreviation AP will refer to a nurse or operating department practitioner who is performing the anaesthetic assistant role, not to a physicians' assistant (anaesthesia) (AAGBI 2008). 041b061a72
