Anaesthesia superspeciality exams

Not just that, you need to have a firm grasp on anaesthetic concepts that you utilize routinely as an anesthesiologist.
NEET SS anaesthesia books & resources
To get that coveted DM Anesthesia seat, you need to master a host of resources.
As far as the general principles of anaesthesia are concerned, the go-to book for any PG level exit exam in Anaesthesia is the latest edition of Miller’s Anaesthesia.
Therefore to gain an upper hand in anaesthesia exams, it is crucial to have the concepts in Miller’s Anaesthesia covered and revised before your exams.
If you are pursuing your post-graduation right now, it is always prudent to regularly start devoting your time to reading Miller’s as much as possible.
As far as subspecialties in Anaesthesia are concerned, the most sought after subspecialties are Cardiac anaesthesia, Neuro anaesthesia followed by organ transplant anaesthesia and critical care.
Even if you are preparing for these exams separately, you still have a substantial amount of questions from the General principles of anaesthesia.
This makes it important for aspirants to be aware of the core concepts of the field.
Apart from this, a few questions do pop out from basic sciences and specialities. To tackle them, you need to refer to a few books like:
Chestnut’s Obstetric Anaesthesia: Principles and Practice
By David H Chestnut
Smith’s Anaesthesia for Infants and Children
By Drs. Peter Davis and Franklyn Cladis
