The Oxford Specialist Handbook of Global Anaesthesia is a key reference for anaesthetists working in environments with scarce resources. Whether due to rural locations, poverty, natural disasters, the outbreak of epidemics, or war and conflict, this handbook supports anaesthetists to practice to a high standard in challenging situations and to problem solve when faced with unusual circumstances.
Practical and concise, this resource outlines how to make the most of minimal resources, from finding alternatives to typical forms of anaesthesia, to the minimum standards for the safe and effective use of equipment. Intuitively laid out, with preoperative and perioperative instructions across a swathe of sub-specialties, including obstetrics, paediatrics, burns, pain, trauma, and critical care.
Written by international experts with a wealth of experience administering anaesthesia in elective and emergency settings across the globe, this essential handbook provides the definitive guide to the provision of consistently safe anaesthesia in unfavourable environments, in a portable and easy-to-read format.
