What are the indications for necrosectomy? How you perform an EUA for acute peri-anal sepsis? What do you understand by the term Early Goal-Directed Therapy (EGDT)? Remember: this is a consultant's exam, and giving a range of options is not good enough. You must tell the examiner what you as a consultant are going to do. The FRCS is a uniquely challenging prospect; highly detailed, wide-ranging and encompassing both theory and practice. Preparation for this exam can be very difficult, and resources tailored to it are scarce. As the consolidated notes of a recent successful candidate, this book is an essential resource when preparing for the viva. The wide variety of questions require you to define, diagnose or choose between treatment options, while MCQs and SBAs help you to objectively evaluate your progress - a unique supplement to your study plan. Answers provided are comprised of an invaluable combination of detailed written answers and lists that will remind you of key points and help you structure your preparation.

Designed for candidates sitting the primary FRCA examination, this book brings together exam questions from recent years and structures them into six practice papers. The format of 90 questions per paper echoes the exam itself. Following each paper a scoring chart and detailed explanations of answers are provided. The questions cover physiology, pharmacology, physics, clinical measurement and statistics as they appear in the primary FRCA. There are questions on all recently added exam topics, and those that now carry stronger emphasis and more weight such as resuscitation, sepsis and trauma. The latest drugs, equipment, monitoring techniques and safety procedures are referenced. Trainees will find this an invaluable tool for exam preparation, whether sitting the FRCA in the UK, through the London College external examiners in many Asian and African countries, or similar exams for anaesthetists in Australasia and North America.
