2014 BMA Medical Book Awards 1st Prize Award Winner in Anaesthesia category!

Smith and Aitkenhead's Textbook of Anaesthesia has become the book of choice for the trainee anaesthetist and is essential reading for candidates for the Fellowship of the Royal College of Anaesthetists and similar examinations.
