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.

  • Ward's has been expanded to include intensive care and advanced monitoring equipment in greater detail as well as an expansion of the growing practice of TIVA (total intravenous anesthesia)
  • written with the new syllabus of the FRCA and FFARCSI (Fellowship of the Royal College of Anesthetists and Fellowship of the Irish College of Anesthetists) in mind.
