Anaesthesiologists regularly administer potent, and potentially toxic, drugs that profoundly interfere with fundamental physiological functions such as breathing, cardiac output, blood pressure, the protective reflexes and the perception of pain. Reviewing all aspects of human ph...ysiology, Physiology for Anaesthesiologists provides a working knowledge of physiological principles and their application to anaesthesia and intensive care. The text covers the various systems of the human body, from the central nervous system to the liver and kidneys. The reader gains an understanding not only of each system discussed, but also of how each of those physiological systems interact with each other. The section on pain, for example, explains how the body warns of dysfunction in one or more systems. In addition to covering the core material for professional examinations, some topics not usually dealt with in textbooks for anaesthetists are also covered, such as the impact of anaesthesia and surgery on the immune system. Written in a clear and concise style, the book supplies up-to-date information to trainees in anaesthesiology and related specialities preparing for professional examinations: both editors have a wealth of experience in these subjects. The book also helps established anaesthesiologists, and those in other related specialities, who want to keep up with recent developments in the field.
