The warriors who study the most blessed art of anesthesia, but remain anonymous while ensuring the patient's wellbeing.
Contributors Preface
Do you know what it means to relieve man of his pain and suffering? Anesthesia is the most humane of all of man's accomplishments, and what a merciful accomplishment it was. For this great discovery, we are indebted to Dr WTG Morton.
—Joseph Lewis in the book ‘An Atheist Manifesto’
It gives us great pleasure to bring to you the first edition of MCQs for Anesthesiology Postgraduates for DM Entrance Examinees. Advancement in surgical techniques and super-specialization in various surgical branches, it was a given that a similar trend will emerge in the vast discipline of Anesthesia. Today we have anesthesia super-specialization in various fields such as Solid Organ Transplant Anesthesia, Neuro-Anesthesia, Pediatric Anesthesia, etc., all these “Superspecialists” resulting in many advances and importantly improvement in patient outcomes. Nowadays, you cannot pursue any discipline without clearing the essential hurdle of entrance examinations. When you prepare for this trial by fire, you need help to train the mind in critical and quick thinking, which hopefully this book will help in.
This book therefore, contains multiple choice questions (MCQs) dealing with many disciplines essential for the anesthesia postgraduates who is preparing for leaping this hurdle before entering the rarified environment of superspecialty practice. As always the reader is the best judge of the utility of the book. All answers to the MCQs are supported by references from either a standard textbook or an article published in a PubMed Indexed Journal. We hope you get back to us with suggestions and criticisms, so that we can improve the next edition! We wish all postgraduates a happy reading and success in their examination!
