Understanding Anesthesia: A Learner's Guide is a textbook aimed at medical students, first year anesthesia residents, and other residents who require anesthesia experience as part of their training. It is a part of the curriculum for clinical clerks in their anesthesia rotation at the Michael G. DeGroote School of Medicine, McMaster University.
There are several ways to use the textbook. It is available for personal use free of charge. iPhone, iPad, iPad mini and Mac OS X users will likely prefer to download a version available for iBooks, which, in addition to the main text, contains interactive elements and media such as quizzes, videos, diagrams, slideshows, and a glossary. Please read the section titles "Getting the most from iBooks" in the preface of the textbook. Other users can download a PDF version. Students at McMaster University with access to the anatomy lab can find the textbook on the iPads in the lab. Two versions for iBooks have been created: one with and one without video. The latter may be useful for students with space constraints on their iPads.
The download links are available on this website. If you choose to download the iBooks version, instructions are available to help you install it, as it is not presently available on the iBooks store.
Please take the time to provide feedback on this project by filling out a survey.
