Oxford Higher Specialty Training: Advanced Training in Anaesthesia eBook PDF download The principal aim of this book is to assist candidates preparing for final examinations in anaesthesia, both
in the UK and elsewhere.
We very much hope, however, that the book will find a place beyond the requirements of exam prepara￾tion. We have tried to produce a stand-alone account of the essentials of our specialty and its subspecial￾ties that will provide a ready source of reference in most situations.

The Final FRCA (Fellowship of the Royal College of Anaesthetists) examination in the UK is a major  hurdle in anaesthetic training, representing the highest professional qualification in the specialty and the  gateway to specialist training at an advanced level..The book attempts to follow closely the recently revised college syllabus, published in August 200.

The syllabus is extensive, comprising both applied basic sciences, and the clinical practice of anaesthesia,
intensive care, and pain management. Any subject listed in the syllabus may appear in the examination: we
have, therefore, adhered to it closely and attempted to be comprehensive in our presentation of topics.

This book aims to cover the required knowledge in the necessary detail, and is designed as a companion  volume to Training in Anaesthesia: The Essential Curriculum, published by Oxford University Press in 200 and
which is aimed at the Primary FRCA. Knowledge of the Primary syllabus is assumed by the Final examiners
and is often a stumbling block in the Final examination.

It cannot be stressed too highly that pure basic science topics are frequently examined in the Final FRCA,  and candidates would be most unwise not to take account of this during their revision. Together, the two  volumes are intended to be a comprehensive guide to the FRCA examination.

In this volume, topics in applied basic science are presented in a systems-based format as laid out in the
college syllabus. The sections that follow cover all the major clinical subspecialties.

The double-page spread  is intended to provide a succinct format for learning, yet containing all the important detail. References and suggestions for further reading from the recent literature are included for readers who  wish to explore subjects in more depth.

The editors have been fortunate to recruit both distinguished contributors who are leaders in their field,  but also trainees—who have made an important contribution to ensure that the resulting information  meets their needs.

We are hugely grateful to everyone at Oxford University Press, most especially to Christopher Reid  who offered such encouragement after our initial approach, to Fiona Richardson and Geraldine Jeffers who  displayed powers of extreme patience (sorely tested!) whilst awaiting the manuscript, and to Abigail Stanley  and Jane Williams for seeing the project through to publication and beyond.

We hope that this will be the first of many editions and look forward to your feedback such that future
editions can evolve according to the needs and wishes of the readership we seek to serve.
