Anaesthesia, Intensive Care and Perioperative Medicine A-Z 6th Edition PDF Free Download: An Encyclopaedia of Principles and Practice (FRCA Study Guides)
This change acknowledges the enormous breadth of information needed to satisfy the vast range of activities performed by our anaesthetic, intensive care, nursing and other colleagues, and also reflects the ever-changing field in which we work. With current consolidation of the role of anaesthetists as ‘perioperative physicians’, we have also developed and/or introduced entries that are particularly relevant to this aspect of our work, and emphasise this in the altered title of the book. The publication of a textbook requires the support of a multitude of people. We are indebted to our colleagues, both junior and senior, who have gently criticised previous editions; their suggestions have been invaluable and have directly resulted in changes found in each new edition over the years. We are particularly grateful to Drs Helen Laycock and Harriet Wordsworth, Chelsea and Westminster Hospital/Imperial College, for advising on entries related to pain and pain management for this edition. We also thank the staff of Elsevier and their predecessors for their support during the life of this project. Finally, this is the second edition of the A–Z on which two of the original authors, SMY and NPH, have worked without the third, Gary Smith, though his contributions exist throughout the book in both the format and content of entries from previous editions. We are both delighted to continue to work with James Ip on this edition, having successfully done so on the previous one.
