Anatomy for Anaesthetists (9th Edition) by Harold Ellis, Andrew Lawson

By Harold Ellis, Andrew Lawson

Jubilee variation of the vintage textual content first released in 1963

Anaesthetists require a very really good wisdom of anatomy

The anaesthetist needs to be aware of in detail the respiration passages, the most important veins and the peripheral
nerves to carry secure and potent ache control.

As one of many nice academics of anatomy, Professor Harold Ellis is eminently certified to elegantly
provide the anatomical aspect required of anaesthetists. sleek methods to perform, including
the use of imaging to steer anaesthetic perform, upload extra intensity to the high quality full-colour anatomical

Designed for anaesthetists, Anatomy for Anaesthetists covers:

• The respiration Pathway, Lungs, Thoracic Wall and Diaphragm
• the guts and nice Veins of the Neck
• The Peripheral Nerves
• The Autonomic frightened System
• The Cranial Nerves
• The Anatomy of Pain

Clinical Notes all through give you the scientific context for the anatomical element. Designed for trainees, yet of continuous relevance to training anaesthetists, and now in its Golden Jubilee version, Anatomy for Anaesthetists presents a vital pillar of anaesthetic knowledge.

Example text

It accompanies the internal branch of the superior laryngeal nerve and in its company pierces the thyrohyoid membrane to supply the interior of the larynx. The inferior laryngeal artery arises from the inferior thyroid branch of the thyrocervical trunk, which, in turn, arises from the first part of the subclavian artery. It accompanies the recurrent laryngeal nerve into the larynx. The corresponding veins drain into the superior and inferior thyroid veins. Thus, the blood supply of the larynx comes from the superior and inferior laryngeal arteries and veins, which are derived from the superior and inferior thyroid vessels and which accompany the superior and ‘inferior’ (recurrent) laryngeal nerves, respectively.

The larynx The competent anaesthetist should have a level of knowledge of the anatomy of the larynx of which a laryngologist would not be ashamed. Evolutionally, the larynx is essentially a protective valve at the upper end of the respiratory passages to protect against inhalation of food during swallowing; its development into an organ of speech is a much later affair. Structurally, the larynx consists of a framework of articulating cartilages, linked together by ligaments, that move in relation to each other by the action of the laryngeal muscles.

On the left side the palatal muscles have been exposed. inferior nasal concha, lies the pharyngeal opening of the pharyngotympanic (Eustachian) tube. The underlying cartilage of the tube produces a bulge immediately behind its opening, termed the tubal elevation, and behind this, in turn, is a small depression, the pharyngeal recess – fossa of ¨ Rosenmuller (Fig. 7). The nasopharyngeal tonsil (‘adenoids’) lies on the roof and posterior wall of the nasopharynx. It consists of a collection of lymphoid tissue covered by ciliated epithelium and lies directly against the superior constrictor muscle; it has no well-defined fibrous capsule.
