The third edition of Fundamentals of Anaesthesia is the gold standard text for the Primary FRCA, encapsulating the basic principles of modern anaesthesia in one easily accessible volume. Written and edited by a team of expert contributors with extensive FRCA examination experience, Fundamentals of Anaesthesia, Third Edition deliberately blends the expertise of invited authors in an unrivalled consistency of style more akin to that of a single author text. Deliberate use of authors with a more general anaesthesia background ties in well with the education of anaesthetists in their early years. The third edition is fully updated, with a number of completely new chapters. Presentation of information is clear and concise, with extensive use of tables, colour illustrations, summary boxes of key information and bullet lists. This Highly Commended award winning textbook is a unique revision aid for the Primary FRCA and an essential companion for all exam candidates.
'There is no doubt that this textbook serves its purpose and is value for money. I read it for the Primary and also the Final FRCA examination and found it extremely helpful. Its improved format is pleasing to the eye. The book gives only the facts, avoiding the controversies of clinical anaesthesia. This prevents confusion for the candidate at a crucial time. … a welcome addition to all anaesthetic libraries for trainees preparing for examinations.' British Journal of Anaesthesia
