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? Check out and see what we have to offer. Praise for Anesthesia Made Easy “A concise review of the basic fundamentals of 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

Jeff Steiner
Edition 1 (2017)
From the author of Anesthesia Made Easy comes the next step in your training to become an anesthesiologist. When you became an anesthesiology resident, no one told you that you would have a full time job as an anesthesiology resident learning your craft and be a full time student getting ready for more exams. Since these exams will cost you both time and money, you will want to only have to take them once. Trying to balance these two roles is difficult when there is so much to learn and only so much time. It is not enough that you have the knowledge, you have to know how to use it. You have worked too hard to get into anesthesiology residency training to blow it on not being able to become Board Certified. With such a high stakes game, where do you begin? Anesthesiology Boards Made Easy is the insider’s strategy guide for residents to show you how to successfully play the game and become Board Certified. After all, if you were going to play a challenging game, you would try to figure out the objectives, rules, knowledge, strategy, tactics, and skills (plus a little luck) to win … right? In this book, I will give you a roadmap to explain how the boards work, how to make your studying more efficient and less painful, and how to prepare for the most challenging exam of your career: The dreaded Applied Exam. (It is a 70 minute oral exam void of multiple choice questions given to you by experts in the field of anesthesiology. Some of the oral board examiners wrote the very books you will study to take the exam.) Section One - The Game: You will learn the broad overview of how to become board certified. Section Two - Doing Well on Your Written Exams: This is where we get into the strategies, tactics, and skills to pass your written exams. You will have several written exams to master including your USMLE/COMLEX Step 3, the Anesthesiology In Training Exam (ITE), the ABA Basic Exam, and the ABA Advanced Exam. Section Three - Graduating From Residency: Most residents think they just have to show and get through. Not so. There are some residents who sail through residency and others who struggle. Learn how to efficiently maneuver through your training program. Section Four - Passing Your Applied Exam: This is the largest section of the book, because you will be taking the Applied Exam as an oral exam. Starting in March 2018, you will also have an OSCE integrated to it as well. Learn how to prepare and take your first professional oral examination. Section Five - Year by Year Checklists: With so much information in Anesthesiology Boards Made Easy where do you begin? This group of year by year checklists will meet you where you are in your training. It does not matter if you are an Intern or graduated from residency, this book will help you get ready for your exams. What are you waiting for?

Key Notes: for Anesthesia Oral Board
Z. Guan
Edition 1 (2009)
Key Notes for Anesthesia Oral Board is a book for board eligible anesthesiologists to prepare for anesthesia oral board. Unlike the written board in which the examinees can have vague knowledge to be able to pick up the right answers, in the oral board the examinees must have well organized and clear-cut knowledge to be able to speak it out. In addition, the answers in oral board need to be short and right to the point. As a result, the knowledge base for oral board has to be concise and precise. To fulfill this goal, the Key Notes contains only key facts of all major clinical anesthesia scenarios, and it is organized in clinically related categories or systems in such ways that it is easy to remember and easy to speak out. It also contains ASA guidelines and the most important results from the recent major studies. In addition to oral board preparation, this book can also be used as a quick clinical reference book for daily anesthesia practice.

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

The Practice of Perioperative Transesophageal Echocardiography provides over 100 teaching cases ranging from the most common to the most challenging. Each case is succinctly presented in an easy-to-read question-answer, self-test format comprised of three printed pages of text and echo images. Echocardiography technique, interpretation, and case management are emphasized by internationally recognized experts in the field. The cases are organized to cover the gamut of clinical challenges faced by perioperative echocardiographers, including disorders of the aorta, left ventricle, and right ventricle, valvular heart disease, congenital heart lesions, catheter and device placement, and unsuspected masses and thrombi. Case challenges related to technical issues such as image optimization and artifacts are also addressed. The versatility of TEE is represented by 2-D, 3-D, color flow and spectral Doppler, tissue Doppler imaging, and quantitative assessments of volumes, pressures, and the severity of valvular pathologies. A companion website contains the fully searchable text plus echocardiographic video clips for each case presented in the book.
