Here are some websites with excellent resources for anaesthetic trainees

  • Royal College of Anaesthetists - is the definitive resource for careers, training and examinations. 

  • Association of Anaesthetists - Professional association for anaesthetists. 10,000 members. Has a journal, conferences, educational resources, guidelines and wellbeing advice. The Trainee Handbook is very useful for those looking at anaesthesia as a career and its Quick Reference Handbook is a great clinical resource in a crisis.

  • - an exhaustive resource for visual learners who like mind maps for compartmentalising information maintained by Craig Johnstone (twitter)

  • Propofology - a UK based, project created to advance the role of FOAMed 
    (Free Open Access to Medical Education) to everyone involved in anaesthesia, critical care and pain medicine. They love a visual resource/infographic

  • e-Learning Anaesthesia - Written and edited by anaesthetists, e-LA covers the knowledge and key concepts that underpin the anaesthetic curriculum for the FRCA examination. The learning material is presented as a structured series of bite-sized sessions with MCQs. There are 800 modules for the core curriculum alone. It's thorough. You register with a email

  • CountBackwardsFrom10 (CBF10) - website aimed at anaesthesia and critical care education through infographics and short chalkboard lectures

  • Life in the Fast Lane (LITFL) - Critical care clinicians who have created a vast amount and exhaustive online resource primarily aimed at critical care...but there is A LOT of relevance to anaesthetics in here too

  • NYSORA - Educational resource for regional anaesthesia. The content on the site is huge, mobile apps are available for quite pricey subscriptions. There is however a great deal of free information available on regional techniques including try thorough explanations, images, dosages.

Youtube Channels

It's how some of us learned so much. These channels are useful for visual learners

  • University of Kentucky (UK) Dept of Anesthesiology channel - really good resource for didactic learning. Their Keyword lectures are heavily exam focused

  • Practical Anesthesia Techniques - video demonstrations of common anaesthetic procedures. The cannulation one will empower your IV access

  • Strong Medicine - Educational videos on a variety of medical topics, produced by Eric Strong - a clinical associate professor of medicine at Stanford University

  • Armando Hasudungan - the Netter of YouTube. His medical illustration videos are fantastic at distilling information down and explaining concepts.

  • AK lectures - Really good (and in depth) physiology, biochemistry and physics lectures. Typically 5-15 minutes long.

  • Ninja Nerd - longer videos, broader physiology, anatomy and biochemistry topics.

  • Tyler DeWitt - gives great short chemistry lectures using a mixture of pictures/props and paper. It's great for covering the chemistry side of anaesthetic theory

Audio learners may find these podcasters useful

  • ACCRAC - this is great. Developed by Jed Wolpaw and has become a staple on commutes to work. Episode topics range from pharmacology, exams, clinical specialities and professional development. 

  • Depth of Anaesthesia - explores dogmas in anaesthesia and appraises their evidence base. Encourages critical thinking and will make your practice more robust

  • Internet Book of Critical Care - Part of  EMCRIT - a huge project to "bring upstairs care, downstairs". Its more aimed at critical care than anaesthesia but is very useful
