Overview

"[A] welcome addition to the reference materials necessary for the study of nurse anesthesia....The textbook is divided into logical, easy to use sections that cover all areas necessary for the practice of nurse anesthesia....This is a text that is easy to read and able to be incorporated into any nurse anesthesia chemistry and physics course. I would recommend this textbook to any program director."

At last. . . a combined chemistry&physics nursing anesthesia text.

This textbook offers combined coverage of chemistry and physics to help students learn the content needed to master the underlying principles of nursing anesthesia. Because many graduate nursing students are uncomfortable with chemistry and physics, this text presents only the specific content in chemistry and physics that relates to anesthesia. Written in a conversational, accessible style, the book teaches at a highly understandable level, so as to bridge the gap between what students recall from their undergraduate biochemistry and physics courses, and what they need to know as nurse anesthetists.

The book contains many illustrations that demonstrate how the scientific concepts relate directly to clinical application in anesthesia. Chapters cover key topics relating to anesthesiology, including the basics of both chemistry and physics, fluids, a concentration on gas laws, states of matter, acids and bases, electrical circuits, radiation, and radioactivity.

With this text, students will benefit from:

  • A review of the math, chemistry, and physics basics that relate to clinical anesthesia
  • A conversational presentation of just what students need to know, enabling a fast and complete mastery of clinically relevant scientific concepts
  • Heavy use of illustrations throughout chapters to complement the text
  • End-of-chapter review questions that help students assess their learning

PowerPoint Slides available to qualified instructors.

Meet the Author

Dr. David Shubert earned a bachelor's degree in chemistry at Fort Hays State University in 1983, and then went on to the University of Colorado to earn a Ph.D. in organic chemistry in 1987 as a National Science Foundation Pre-Doctoral Fellow. He was inducted into the national ARCS Foundation prior to joining Newman University in 1987. Although his area of expertise lies in organometallic chemistry, Dr. Shubert has taught introductory, general, organic, analytical, instrumental analysis, and bio-chemistry, in addition to earth and space science, general physical science and chemistry/physics for nurse anesthesia. In 1995, Dr. Shubert was honored by his students and peers with the Teaching Excellence Award. Although teaching remains his primary interest, Dr. Shubert has worked as a chemical consultant with several local industries, including Vulcan Chemicals and BG Products. Working with colleagues from five independent colleges, and with financial support from the National Science Foundation, the Camille and Henry Dreyfus Foundation and the A.V. Davis Foundation, Dr. Shubert has offered numerous workshops that provide training and access to modern instrumentation to high school chemistry teachers. His research interests have evolved from organometallic chemistry to chemical education. Dr. Shubert now serves as Dean of the College of Arts and Sciences at Newman University.
