This concise revision guide provides the essential information for trainees with an interest in regional anaesthesia, taking any MCQ-based exam in the specialty. Divided into nine clear chapters, it serves both as an overview and as examination practice. Each topic is approached systematically to explain relevant concepts, including anatomy and physiology, and techniques of nerve blockage and their indications, contraindications and complications. It also includes notoriously difficult and often avoided topics such as pain therapy and statistics. The book is fully referenced, has over 120 tables and 90 illustrations to aid comprehension and an appendix that includes vital information for rapid and effective revision.
