Practice vignettes, histories and mark schemes for your finals.

With little more than a few days exposure to Anaesthetics and Critical Care at Medical School, many students find this strange world of new drugs, gases, vapours and equipment to be almost impenetrable. When the time comes for exam preparation, this can make it difficult to know where to begin.

This book is designed to cover a broad base of core knowledge and skills that will be useful not only in your exam preparation, but also as you begin your career as a Foundation Doctor.

Presented are a range of fifty scenarios in Anaesthesia, Critical Care and Pain, demonstrating the breadth and variety of clinical experience you could expect from a career in Anaesthetics, from the Operating Theatre to the Labour Ward, ICU and the Emergency Department.

The theme of clear communication runs throughout the book, reflecting its central importance in the clinical environment. In particular there are stations testing your ability to break bad news with clarity and empathy and others requiring you to convey complex technical information in an understandable way.
