The Primary ( ) and Final () FRCA examinations require an extensive knowledge of ultrasound. We have therefore written a new educational resource section on the subject of ultrasound, including the physiology and increasing use of ultrasound in anaesthesia and intensive care medicine. The tutorials have been tailored to the FRCA syllabus.
