Even when you do read these books, how will you translate the information into something you can use in the operating room when you are first starting out? Welcome to Anesthesia Made Easy.I wrote this book to introduce you to anesthesiology.

It includes the basics of anesthesia without getting too far into the weeds and also gives you a practical approach that will get you started moving in the right direction.New anesthesiology students struggle with which book to read and where to start.

At under 200 pages, it is the one basic anesthesia book that you can reasonable read cover to cover quickly. If you are doing anesthesia observations or shadowing to see if anesthesia is a good fit for you, you should start with chapter 1, “How to Get the Most from Your Anesthesiology Observation.” Then read chapter 4, “Anesthesiology Basic Concepts,” and chapter 5, “Getting Around in the OR,” to learn the culture of the OR—they will bring you a long way.

Praise for Anesthesia Made Easy“A concise review of the basic fundamentals of anesthesiology. Written in outline form, this book provides the essentials for anyone interested in anesthesiology. I would highly recommend for medical students, beginning anesthesia residents, AAs and CRNAs.” Eugene Chung, D.O. - CA-1 Resident “Providing an introductory approach on a topic as broad and in depth as anesthesia is nearly impossible, and therefore many novices find themselves up to their elbows in thousand page textbooks not knowing where to start. Dr Steiner has successfully compiled a basic guide that provides a starting point for providers just beginning their journey into the world of anesthesia."Ryan A Sexton, RN, MSN, CRNA - Practicing CRNA "A great book for medical students and residents looking to get the most out of their anesthesia rotation! It provides useful information on airways, common anesthetic medications, and basic anesthesia theory. It also gives a small glimpse into the OR from the unique perspective of the anesthesiologist.”Amy P. Woods, M.D. - Faculty AnesthesiologistLooking for more information about anesthesiology?Check out AnesthesiaMadeEasy.com/AMZ and see what we have to offer.
