RUH Consultants top BMA's best books list

Five consultants from Bath's Royal United Hospital (RUH) made it onto the shortlist of the highly prestigious BMA Medical Book Awards.

The awards, held annually by the British Medical Association (BMA), celebrate outstanding contributions to medical literature.

LOLS10在线直播下注 RUH Consultant Anaesthetist, Professor Tim Cook was awarded the top prize in the Anaesthesia and Critical Care category as co-author of a research report into accidental anaesthetic awareness.

Professor Cook said: "This was the culmination of a three year project exploring the rare subject of awareness during general anaesthesia. It was the largest ever project of its kind – covering three million general anaesthetics from every public hospital in the UK and Ireland and drawing upon patients' experiences of this rare event. It is rather unusual for a report of this nature to be nominated for such an award, and we were delighted both to be shortlisted and to be announced as winners."

The report – entitled Accidental Awareness during General Anaesthesia in the United Kingdom and Ireland: Report and Findings – was described by one reviewer as 'certain to change practice around the world' and by the awards' judges as a 'game-changer'.

Consultant in Anaesthesia and Intensive Care, Professor Jerry Nolan was shortlisted for co-authoring Key Topics in Critical CareLOLS10在线直播下注 – a comprehensive reference handbook for clinical practice in intensive care medicine. The book received praise from the award judges for being 'well made, well structured, and well referenced.'

Consultant in Anaesthesia and Intensive Care, Andy Georgiou was also highly commended in this category for the text he co-authored entitled Applied Anatomy for Anaesthesia and Intensive Care. The text was described by judges as 'an essential resource for anyone studying towards postgraduate examinations in anaesthesia and intensive care medicine'.

Consultant Cardiologists Daniel Augustine and Ali Khavandi were shortlisted in the Cardiology category for their Oxford LOLS10在线直播下注 Press title MCQs for the Cardiology Knowledge Based AssessmentLOLS10在线直播下注 – an essential revision companion for cardiologists embarking upon their Knowledge Based Assessment (KBA). It was described as being 'the insider's guide to the KBA, to ensure [examinees] gain both the confidence and knowledge to pass.'

The RUH is proud to see its consultants commended for making recognised contributions both to their fields of practice and to the literature that informs others practicing within the health profession.
