DESCRIPTION

Anesthesia Review, Second Edition is the ideal study aid for both the written and the oral board examinations in anesthesiology. The first section presents board-format questions in all the major areas of anesthesiology, including physiology, pharmacology, regional anesthesia, pain management, and major organ systems. The second section provides bulleted, outline-format answers that review the knowledge needed to answer the question correctly. The third section contains cases to further prepare readers for oral boards.

This edition includes thoroughly updated information, particularly on airway management, pharmacology, patient safety, and quality assurance. Questions and answers include references to the latest editions of standard anesthesiology textbooks.
