Since the American Board of Anesthesiology (ABA) announced the subspecialty certification exam in pediatrics in 2013, board-eligible attending physicians and trainees have been scrambling to find a comprehensive question–based study aid. While many review courses and study outlines are available, often at a hefty price, few have had accompanying questions to actually test knowledge. Rather, it has been up to individuals to gather together old-practice board review or Anesthesiology Continuing Education questions on their own in order to fill this gap. Finally, the board review book that people have been looking for has arrived!
Pediatric Anesthesiology: A Comprehensive Board Review is a “high-yield study aid” that is composed of over 600 questions and full explanations of their answers. The authors organized the textbook based on the published ABA Pediatric Anesthesiology certification content outline, and each major topic within the outline is covered. This includes sections on basic science, organ-based basic and clinical sciences, clinical subspecialties, clinical sciences of anesthesia, and special problems or issues. Each section of the text is then further subdivided into chapters based on the subheadings of the ABA outline.
