Overview

Unlike a textbook of anatomy, which must cover all parts of the body with exhaustive thoroughness, Anatomy for Anaesthetists concentrates particularly on! areas of special relevance to anesthesia and points out features of practical importance for the day-to-day practice of anesthesia. The text is divided into sections; the respiratory pathway, the heart, the vertebral canal, the peripheral nerves and zones of anesthetic interest. Throughout the book are detailed lines for producing local anesthetic blocks. Including extensively redrawn illustrations, the seventh edition has been further revised to take into account new material on the epidural space and axilliary nerve blocks.
