Anesthesia Made Easy: The Survival Guide to Make Your First Anesthesia Rotation a Success
Jeff Steiner
Edition 1 (2015)
Why you need this book: Most introductory anesthesia books are too long and too complex. Where do you begin learning about anesthesia when the basic books are over 800 pages long and weigh four pounds? Even when you do read these books, how will you translate the information into something you can use in the operating room when you are first starting out? Welcome to Anesthesia Made Easy. I wrote this book to introduce you to anesthesiology. It is part education guide (to teach you the basics of anesthesia) and part survival guide (to teach you how to apply these basics while in the operating room). It includes the basics of anesthesia without getting too far into the weeds and also gives you a practical approach that will get you started moving in the right direction. New anesthesiology students struggle with which book to read and where to start. This book will give you not only a solid foundation upon which to start your career but also organize the information in such a way that you can actually use it. At under 200 pages, it is the one basic anesthesia book that you can reasonable read cover to cover quickly. If you are doing anesthesia observations or shadowing to see if anesthesia is a good fit for you, you should start with chapter 1, “How to Get the Most from Your Anesthesiology Observation.” Then read chapter 4, “Anesthesiology Basic Concepts,” and chapter 5, “Getting Around in the OR,” to learn the culture of the OR—they will bring you a long way. If you are applying to AA or CRNA school, then read this book cover to cover before you interview. It will give you a working knowledge of the type of training you will receive. It may also help you in your interview process to give you answers to simple questions about anesthesia care. If you are an airway rotator, concentrate on chapter 19, “Airway Exam and Evaluation,” chapter 7, “Basic Anesthesia Pharmacology: Medications,” and chapter 24 “Adult Airway Management,” chapter 25 “Pediatric Airway Management,” and chapter 27 “Rapid Sequence Induction (RSI).” If you are on your first anesthesia rotation, start at the front of Anesthesia Made Easy and work your way through before you start your rotation. This book is meant to be a quick read. Bring the book with you to the operating room and take notes in the notes section. Looking for more information about anesthesiology?

Written in outline form, this book provides the essentials for anyone interested in anesthesiology. I would highly recommend for medical students, beginning anesthesia residents, AAs and CRNAs.” Eugene Chung, D.O. - CA-1 Resident “Providing an introductory approach on a topic as broad and in depth as anesthesia is nearly impossible, and therefore many novices find themselves up to their elbows in thousand page textbooks not knowing where to start. Dr Steiner has successfully compiled a basic guide that provides a starting point for providers just beginning their journey into the world of anesthesia." Ryan A Sexton, RN, MSN, CRNA - Practicing CRNA "A great book for medical students and residents looking to get the most out of their anesthesia rotation! It provides useful information on airways, common anesthetic medications, and basic anesthesia theory. It also gives a small glimpse into the OR from the unique perspective of the anesthesiologist.” Amy P. Woods, M.D. - Faculty Anesthesiologist

Clinical Pediatric Anesthesia: A Case-Based Handbook
Kenneth Goldschneider, Andrew Davidson, Eric Wittkugel, Adam Skinner
Edition 1 (2012)
Through 71 case presentations, Clinical Pediatric Anesthesia covers the field of pediatric anesthesiology with a practical, point-of-care approach. Each concisely written case is organized by introduction, learning objectives, case presentation, discussion, summary, annotated references, and further reading. In a style akin to the oral board examinations, discussions are framed as questions and answers to encourage thorough analysis and understanding by the reader. Key words are highlighted to emphasize important points, and annotated references allow for further exploration of topics. Multiple approaches often exist for the care of children in any given situation, so various options are discussed when appropriate with advantages and disadvantages closely examined. Since questions posed by real-life clinical situations call for active thinking, this case-based book promotes the same evaluation and decision-making skills required of the pediatric anesthesia clinician.

Manual of Pediatric Anesthesia
Jerrold Lerman, David Steward, Charles Cote
Edition 7 (2016)
Authored by three world experts, this is a clinically focused book on pediatric anesthesia. "The Manual", as it is known, has long dominated the market for a succinct and practical resource on administering anesthesia to children and is used by residents, general anesthesiologists, nurse anesthetists, and pediatric anesthesiologists. This new edition retains the basic structure of the book and is updated throughout. Text-heavy in the current edition, the Seventh Edition features the addition of figures to chapters where they are especially helpful (eg, the chapter on cardiovascular surgery and cardiac procedures) and makes greater use of headings to break up the text and guide reading. From reviews of the Sixth Edition:"​This is an extremely well written book that I would recommend highly to anyone involved in anaesthetizing children. It is comprehensive enough to provide an excellent reference for trainees and general anaesthetists who occasionally deal with paediatric cases, while at the same time giving valuable supplemental information for paediatric anaesthetists encountering an unusual procedure or condition. In short, this is a book that would make a welcome addition to any anaesthetist's mobile library." --Anaesthesia
