Every day you may make progress. Every step may be fruitful. Yet there will stretch out before you an ever-lengthening, ever-ascending, ever-improving path. You know you will never get to the end of the journey. But this, so far from discouraging, only adds to the joy and glory of the climb.
Sir Winston Churchill British politician (1874–1965)
As well as being the 24th edition of Recent Advances in Anaesthesia this will also be the 75th Anniversary edition. The series was first published as Recent Advances in Anaesthesia and Analgesia (Including Oxygen Therapy) in 1932. Since then there have been 23 editions. The title has been slightly changed over the years to reflect the changes in our practice, culminating in this the 24th edition of Recent Advances in Anaesthesia and Intensive Care. As in the past we have tried to ensure a range of topics encompassing basic science, clinical practice, new drugs and devices used in anaesthesia and intensive care, and in this edition the evaluation of training of the future generation of anaesthetists. We have chosen topics that we hope will be of interest to general anaesthetists as well as topics that may appeal more to the specialist anaesthetist and to the intensivist.
The first chapter by Drs Paul Older and Adrian Hall addresses a problem that many anaesthetists face: how to assess a patient with limited cardiopulmonary physiological reserve who needs a major operation.
Recent Advances in Anaesthesia and Intensive Care, volume 24 is the latest book in this very successful and long-established series (originally entitled Recent Advances in Anaesthesia and Analgesia) to present a collection of cutting-edge topics for anaesthetists. It has been compiled by some of the world's leading authorities in their subjects and builds on the successful formula of the previous volumes. As the title suggests, these latest volumes have increased input from the field of intensive care, including a particularly topical chapter on intensive care outreach. Other chapters include deaths under anaesthesia, use of simulators in anaesthesia, and transoesophageal echocardiography. Trainee and practising anaesthetists and intensivists at all levels will find this book extremely relevant in their daily clinical practice.
