Description

This book covers the anatomical knowledge that trainee anaesthetists who are revising for the Primary and Final FRCA exams will need. The topics covered are derived from the FRCA curriculum and include the most up to date version of past exam questions, in order to ensure targeted and successful exam revision.

The content, illustrations and overall layout of this book ensure that common gaps in anatomical knowledge encountered by FRCA trainees are included. The book is divided into sections pertaining to anatomical regions; head and neck, thorax, abdomen, spine, upper and lower limbs. The topics of importance to anaesthetists are presented under ‘structures’, ‘circulation’ and ‘nervous system’ (with relevance to regional anaesthesia). Each topic is extensively researched and presented in a simple format for maximum retention. This book makes learning and remembering applied anatomy as straightforward as possible.

It also supplements the knowledge required by trainee anaesthetists appearing for the FRCA exams. Clinical educators will also find it useful in teaching. It serves as a practical reference for anatomical knowledge at any point in an anaesthetist’s career.
