Learn the fundamentals of anesthesiology in the context of real patients by Case Files.
4 STAR DOODY’S REVIEW!
“The Case files Anesthesiology targets medical students, but even junior anesthesia trainees would find it very compelling….Although it has the appearance of a handbook, this book is an overview of clinical anesthesiology. It takes a simulation approach to drive home the essential concepts of anesthesia management in different disease conditions. Of all the handy books out there, this is perhaps the only one that teaches anesthesia in the context of real patients rather than merely stating facts. It would be an invaluable aid to medical students doing anesthesia clerkships or junior anesthesia trainees who need a quick review for an emergency case in the middle of the night.”–Doody’s Review Service
