The section contains notes focused around Anaesthetic core topic area’s. They are useful for both MCQ, SAQ revision and Anaesthetic Viva revision.

These notes are authored from numerous sourced. These include work by myself, or in collaboration with previous notes from Dr Jeremy Fernando’s and Dr J Pigou. Extra material has come from various sources including the Oxford Anaesthetic Handbook, as many relevant CEACCP articles that I could find (there were a lot), ANZCA documents, NZ Blood Modules, ACCAHA Guidelines and local department published documents & group teaching. They have also been supplemented by learning and information from the Auckland Revision Course.

Many thanks to all the contributors.

All notes are in downloadable .pdf format:
