The fundamental challenge—and, conversely, the inherent joy—of anesthesiology flows from its multidisciplinary nature. Every day, we are called upon to synthesize the basic sciences of anatomy, physiology, and pharmacology and apply them to our patients, whose every organ system—yes, even those beyond the immediate focus of our surgical colleagues—will be affected by our decisions. Although we must study and have access to texts dedicated to highly specific components of our practice, it can also be helpful to have a more general guidebook that ties multiple aspects together and provides a sense of the forest for the trees. A welcome addition to the latter group is the recently released Applied Anatomy for Anaesthesia and Intensive Care.
