This revision book in cardiothoracic surgery, cardiac and lung anatomy, physiology and pharmacology suitable for surgical, medical and allied health professionals and trainees contains over 300 questions and answers.
Following on from the success of the first edition, Short Answer Questions and MCQs in Anaesthesia and Intensive Care has been completely rewritten to reflect the changes to the final FRCA exam from a long essay based examination to compulsory short answer questions (SAQs). This guide aims to introduce methods and systems of answering questions succinctly and accurately. Almost all of the questions have been asked in the final FRCA since 1996 and most chapters carry more detail than required to reach a pass standard. The new edition takes a question-orientated approach and provides guidance for the final exam. Given the short time allowed for answering the SAQs, previous practice, prior to sitting the examination, is essential. Each of the twelve sections has a comprehensive set of multiple choice questions (MCQ) to the same standard as those set by the Royal College of Anaesthetists. It is vital that candidates practice MCQs as well as SAQs, and the ninety multiple choice questions that follow the SAQ paper carry just as much weight as the SAQ paper. The book has been structured as topic based sections and chapters, each of which can be followed and used to enable self-testing. This book is an invaluable revision aid during preparation for the final FRCA exam and, due to the breadth of content, also forms a useful ready reference throughout anaesthetic training.

This book established itself in its first edition as the definitive 'one-stop-shop' revision aid; the only one available to encompass all elements of the MRCOG Part 2 examination in a single volume. Now incorporating practice EMQs as well as the standard question types, this second edition will ensure that it retains its place on the 'must-have' list for every candidate preparing for this exam. Concentrating on testing the candidate's theoretical and practical knowledge as recommended in the current MRCOG syllabus, the book tests the trainee with questions in obstetrics and gynaecology and those aspects of medicine, surgery and paediatrics relevant to the practice of both. The book is divided into four key parts, one for each style of question, each of which opens with an introductory section on how to approach the exam and, crucially, how to fail it. # Part 1 provides a series of short answer practice papers. Common mistakes are highlighted as well as a list of key points required to get full marks. A sample answer is given for each question # Part 2 contains a mock paper for the MCQ part of the exam, containing 225 questions with answers and helpful annotations # Part 3 introduces the EMQ, giving the reader 40 questions in the style of the examination, together with answers and explanatory notes # Part 4 is devoted to the OSCE, with descriptions of 20 sample stations assessing different aspects of clinical practice, advice on how to tackle these, and suggested marking schemes. Throughout, questions have been designed to test factual knowledge and understanding, problem-solving ability, and clinical and communication skills.
Recent reforms in medical education have prompted the replacement of subjective examination methods with Multiple Choice Questions (MCQs) and Single Best Answer (SBA) questions at all levels. In fact single best answer questions are fast becoming the sole method of assessment in undergraduate as well as postgraduate examinations. This book provides a comprehensive revision aid for residents/registrars undertaking their Cardiothoracic Surgery Board examinations around the world, including the FRCS Cardiothoracic Surgery examination, the American Board of Thoracic Surgery examination and the Royal Australasian College of Surgeons Board of Cardiothoracic Surgery examination. Although these examinations vary in format in different countries, this book is applicable to all cardiothoracic surgical trainees. The book comprises over 300 single best answer practice questions with each question carefully formulated to cover an important topic in cardiothoracic surgery. A considerable number of these questions have been drawn from past examinations. This book contains a substantial number of patient-based questions or clinical vignettes that will enable prospective candidates to test their ability to integrate key basic science concepts with relevant clinical problems. In addition, factual recall questions have been included that probe for basic recall of facts. Detailed and comprehensive explanations, rather than just brief answers, have been provided so that candidates do not have to consult textbooks for clarification as is the case with many other MCQs books currently available in the market. A list of relevant references is provided at the end of each answer to enable candidates to read the most up-to-date journal articles on the subject.

The Diploma in Otolaryngology - Head & Neck Surgery (DOHNS) is now an intercollegiate examination, and can count towards membership of one of the surgical colleges of Great Britain. The DOHNS has evolved to fit its new role, leaving little up-to-date material available for candidates preparing for the written component. This book by former DOHNS candidates meets that need, focusing on topics that are likely to be examined. Each answer is accompanied by an explanation using current evidence-based research wherever possible. This will be an essential revision text for all DOHNS candidates.
Critical Care MCQs is the perfect companion for anyone sitting exams in intensive care, as a training resource or just wanting to improve their knowledge in this constantly developing area of medical practice. Written by critical care doctors with experience of UK and European examination formats, this book leads the reader through 450 true/false questions with referenced explanations, covering core syllabus topics and key influential papers to date. A detailed list of further resources and recommendations relevant to critical care revision is also provided to enable readers to further their knowledge and understanding. It is hoped that this book will prove invaluable for preparation and success in upcoming intensive care exams for both candidates and trainers. This book would be useful for not only candidates sitting the UK Final Fellowship of Intensive Care Medicine (FFICM) and European Diploma of Intensive Care (EDIC) exams, but also the Indian Diploma in Critical Care Medicine (IDCCM), the Diploma of the Irish Board of Intensive Care Medicine (DIBICM), the Australia and New Zealand Fellowship of the College of Intensive Care Medicine (CICM), American Board and any other country-related intensive care exams.
Intensive care medicine is a dynamic and evolving specialty, requiring its practitioners to be part physician, physiologist and anaesthetist. This requires a firm foundation of knowledge and an ability to apply this to the clinical situation. This book contains 270 multiple-choice questions allowing self-assessment of the breadth of knowledge required of the modern intensivist. The book is divided into three papers each consisting of 60 multiple true false (MTF) and 30 single best answer (SBA) questions covering areas including resuscitation, diagnosis, disease management, organ support, and ethical and legal aspects of practice. The MTF questions test factual knowledge and understanding of the evidence base underpinning intensive care medicine, while the SBA questions test the ability of the candidate to prioritise, compete options and make the best decision for the patient. Each question is peer reviewed and accompanied by concise and detailed explanatory notes with references to guide further reading. All the authors are practising intensive care physicians with firsthand experience of professional examinations in the specialty. This book will appeal to intensive care physicians approaching professional examinations worldwide, including the European Diploma, American Board and Faculty of Intensive Care Medicine examinations. In addition, it will appeal to intensive care nurses and allied healthcare professionals wishing to update their knowledge as part of continuing professional development, and to physicians sitting professional examinations in related specialties requiring knowledge of intensive care medicine such as general medicine, general surgery and anaesthesia. This new book will complement the existing international best-selling title ‘Multiple Choice Questions in Intensive Care Medicine’ (ISBN 978 1 903378 64 9), also written by Dr Steve Benington.
