Quick Draw Anatomy for Anaesthetists 2018

“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. Dr. Fox, congratulations on completing your training and thank you for creating and publishing this simple little book that will help those with a bent toward the visual to learn more quickly and effectively.” Anesthesiology 2018; 129:857–8
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
  • 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 – taking some of the stress out of potential viva questions!
