This book comprises ten complete sets of examination papers, each of which includes structured questions in clinical anaesthesia and clinical science. The clinical anaesthesia section is composed of one long case and three short cases. For each long case clear candidate information and relevant clinical material have been presented. The clinical science section is composed of four key topics, one each from applied anatomy, physiology, pharmacology and clinical measurement. Within the basic science component there is an emphasis on application to clinical practice.
Clinical scenarios are included as an introduction to questions in all sections, enabling the candidates to assess their problem-solving ability. In both sections the answers are presented clearly and thoroughly, and explained with simple illustrations and many tables.
This book is essential study material for candidates sitting senior anaesthetic postgraduate examinations, and enables them to understand their strengths and weaknesses in areas of clinical knowledge, clinical skills, technical skills, problem solving, organisation and planning. With thorough revision of this book, candidates can enter these exams with confidence. It is an invaluable educational resource for all anaesthetists, and especially so for those involved with training.
