Textbook of Anaesthesia Summary

Textbook of Anaesthesia by David Rowbotham

This is a new edition of a very successful textbook aimed at residents taking the Fellowship examination of the Royal College of Anaesthetists and/or similar type exams. The examination has changed since the current edition was published moving from a three part exam to a two part one, with Part 1 now having a much greater basic science content. The new edition should consolidate the book's position as the dominant text for Part 1 of the FRCA. It is also highly suitable for exams such as the Diploma of Anaesthesiology of the European Academy of Aneaesthesiology.
