Elsevier Saunders, 2005 - Medical - 532 pages
Ward's Anaesthetic Equipment familiarizes the anesthetic trainee very thoroughly with anesthesia and intensive care equipment and it remains the recommended text for Parts II, III and the final FRCA and FFARCSI exams. The newest edition has been completely updated and revised to ensure the close integration of the physical principles and clinical applications of equipment throughout the text. It is the only comprehensive equipment textbook based on UK equipment and practice. This is a comprehensive and highly practical one-stop source of information on the latest anesthetic and intensive care equipment currently in use.
