Students in anesthesiology need in-depth knowledge of physiology of the human body as well as pharmacokinetics and pharmacodynamics of drugs in order to give safe anesthesia to the patient. The art of giving anesthesia is in turn dependent on technology of advanced monitoring gadgets as well as in-depth understanding of various subjects. The whole gamut of clinical cases may not be covered in every institute, however, the postgraduates are expected to be familiar with the management of all possible clinical situations they may encounter. Very few books available give students an up-to-date and detailed knowledge as well as being easy to read, comprehend and retain. Thus, we came up with the idea of writing a book having all the cases (short and long) covering entire topics which may be asked in theory as well as practical examinations.
The book is not intended to be definitive text but contains mixture of core knowledge and detailed background information.
The aim was to create several small chapters that could be used as basis for individual reading or group tutorials for further exploration around a topic.

A major part of the practical examination focuses on evaluating the examinee’s knowledge of clinical case management, which comprises of long cases and short cases
