Here’s what the reviewers said:
“It is so easy to pick up and check things, and the illustrations and drawing instructions have allowed me to do my own drawings and learn how to label them.”

This book provides you with simple instructions on how to draw and interpret the crucial anatomy you need for your anaesthetic training. 

Covers all the relevant anatomy in:

  • Head, neck and neuro – from Circle of Willis to cervical plexus
  • Vertebral column – from the spinal cord to the sacrum
  • Cardiac – coronary arteries and venous drainage of the heart
  • Airway and respiratory – from airway sensation to the diaphragm
  • Abdomen – from the abdominal aorta to the nephron, via a TAP block
  • Limbs – from blood vessels in the arms to the ankle, via the femoral canal

For the majority of sections, in addition to a simple drawing and detailed explanation, there are also step-by-step illustrations to show you how to draw the anatomy yourself – this active learning will deepen your understanding of the subject and improve your recall for potential viva questions!

“Dr. Fox has created a simplified and readily accessible group of anatomic drawings that quickly allow those studying to master the material. The concept itself of using visual mnemonics is useful to all… For visual learners, the concept just can’t be beat.
