About the author :

Kevin Kiff qualified from the London Hospital Medical School, and following a grounding in medicine started his anaesthetic training in London, completing the final FRCA examination in 1993. Following one year at Great Ormond Steet PICU, he was appointed Senior Registrar in Anaesthesia at St Bartholomew's Hospital, during which time he jointly received the BMA's Elizabeth Wherry prize and published on porcine models of critical illness and predictors of paediatric respiratory failure. Dr Kiff was appointed Consultant in Anaesthesia and Intensive Care Medicine at Broomfield Hospital, Chelmsford in 1997, and since then has been heavily involved in the training of anaesthetists, medics, surgeons and medical students. Dr Kiff teaches regularly on and directs National ATLS courses. His special research and audit interests include the implementation of Early Warning Systems and the provision of in-patient emergency care. Catherine Spoors trained at Downing College, Cambridge, and New College, Oxford. She is currently a Specialist Registrar in the Bart's and the London School of Anaesthesia. She has a special interest in medical education.



Training in Anaesthesia is a curriculum-based guide to the first phase of specialty training in anaesthestics; comprehensively covering the specific techniques, assessments and basic medical and physiological knowledge that trainees are required to learn as part of their basic training.

The book is authored by both trainees and specialists, and has been comprehensively edited and peer-reviewed by both groups in order to create an authoritative yet accessible text, highlighted and augmented by many of the diagrams and key concepts that a trainee may be expected to reproduce during viva examinations. Novel drug tables convey essential information in a new and attractive form, and the majority of images have been created specifically for this book, avoiding the cliched figures and illustrations reproduced in training texts to date. The organization of the material is unique, and the topic-based design ensures easy navigation and structured revision and learning.

From The Critics

Reviewer: Martin H Dauber, MD(University of Chicago Pritzker School of Medicine)
Description: This comprehensive book covers the entire field of anesthesia using an attractive double-page, well-illustrated format.
Purpose: It is designed to be used for review prior to board-equivalent examinations. Though a publication of the U.K., it is appropriate for readers in the U.S. as well.
Audience: Although it is designed for trainees studying for board exams, the book is so comprehensive, easy to read, well illustrated, and orderly that it is an outstanding asset for anyone in practice. It could be the sole resource necessary for one preparing for Maintenance of Certification in Anesthesiology (MOCA) and/or American Board of Anesthesiology (ABA) recertification.
Features: The title seems to imply this book covers the teaching of the subject of anesthesia. However, it is an orderly and comprehensive review of almost the entire field of anesthesia. The double-paged chapters make this extremely easy to use, and the illustrations are outstanding. The charts are well organized and clinically relevant. The intended audience for this book is U.K. trainees. Accordingly there is a British nuance, which I did not find an impediment.
Assessment: This is, by far, one of the most outstanding review books in the field of anesthesiology. It far surpasses the review from the ever-popular Lange series in quality, readability, and completeness (Clinical Anesthesiology, 4th edition. Morgan et al. (McGraw-Hill, 2006). It is all one needs to study to review for the ABA (or FRCA) examination.
