Principles of Physiology for the Anaesthetist, now in its Third Edition, continues to provide candidates with a “tailor-made” alternative to more general physiology textbooks and delivers information designed and written specifically with the trainee anaesthetist in mind.
The book covers the physiology of all major organ systems, with specific emphasis on the nervous, respiratory, and cardiovascular systems. In addition, special sections on the physiology of pain, the physiology of ageing, and the physiological effects of specific environments―all highly relevant to anaesthetic practice―have been incorporated.
The third edition builds upon several new features introduced in the last edition: learning objectives, areas for reflection, and a handy summary of physiological equations and tables. Copious diagrams throughout support the text and aid in the understanding of difficult concepts.
This book is excellent for what it is – an overview of physiology for anaesthetic trainees.
I found it to be an excellent resource in studying for the primary exam. It is to be expected that core topics, such as cardiovascular and respiratory physiology, are not covered to the level of detail required for the exam. For these topics, it’s a decent introduction but you definitely need to use other sources, e.g. West’s Respiratory Physiology: The Essentials. For more peripheral topics with a lesser level of expected knowledge, such as immunology, it has as much detail as you should be required to know. This saves you from either getting a separate physiology book for every body system or from using a weighty tome like Guyton and Hall Textbook of Medical Physiology, 13e (Guyton Physiology), which is a great reference but is awkward to carry around with you and covers many topics in far more detail than you need for the primary exam.
Highly recommended. Read it fairly early in your study to get a good overview of topics. This will prepare you well for more in-depth texts and help you answer questions and understand inter-relations between systems.
