We recently had tutorial sessions to discuss and describe the anaesthetic equipments that we use everyday. It is an important yet vital part of our Part 2 exams and OMG!! I feel so incomplete and blur.. hahaha the main reason maybe because i never sat down and read properly dedicated literature or book on this topic. I thought my knowledge was fine but how wrong can i be !!!
As anaesthetist, we have to be really confident with the equipments that we use day in day out; I remember Dr Hashim my consultant in Selayang who's very good at it.. He knows everything ; fingertips wooo... The good thing about being comfortable with your equipment is, if something goes wrong you can identify it and rectify it ASAP! Instead , i too depend on the MA in charge or the nursing staff !! hahahaha Anaes Gen X lah ni..
HAd a look at Basir's book( Shaikh and Baha). He actually bought it which cost a bomb!! Usually we'll be cheapskate and get a photocopy version of it but for this book; i reckon the original book make things crystal clear. I kinda like this book which is concise and full of colour pictures! However, when i tried to search it in our library; i'm dissappointed that we don't have it
I only managed to get WARD's from the department's library which is thicker and more detailed. I kinda like it too ..hahaha ( janji ada gambar kaler2 banyak..oklah tu) but it is a bit too bulky to bring around for short reads.
At least , i'm starting to be a bit serious with my reading.. I hope that it is a good sign! :)
