The Objective Structured Clinical Examination in Anaesthesia

Practice papers for Teachers and Trainees
ISBN: 978 1 903378 56 4
Paperback
Pub date: September 2007
Retail price: GBP £35

Dr Cyprian Mendonca MD, FRCA, Consultant Anaesthetist, University Hospitals Coventry and Warwickshire, Coventry, UK and Dr Shyam Balasubramanian MD, FRCA, Consultant Anaesthetist, University Hospitals Coventry and Warwickshire, Coventry, UK

The Objective Structured Clinical Examination (OSCE) is a highly reliable and valid tool for the evaluation of trainees in anaesthesia. It enables examiners and trainers to assess a number of competencies in an organised way. Performance in the OSCE is considered to be a fair reflection of the level of knowledge and skill attained during anaesthesia training. Apart from having a wide and deep knowledge on the subject, trainees are expected to have the capacity to demonstrate their competency in a short period of time allotted for each station.

The authors of this book have a rich experience in successfully conducting OSCE courses in the United Kingdom. The sample OSCE sets in the book closely simulate the style and content of the Royal College of Anaesthetists' examination format. The book contains 100 OSCE stations with answers based on key practical procedures, clinical skills, communication skills, data interpretation, anaesthetic equipment and the management of critical incidents on a simulator. The answers are presented thoroughly and clearly.
The tutorial on the relevant topic and additional key points at the end of each station, together with more than 100 illustrations throughout the book will complement the reader's overall understanding. The marking system signifies the relevance of each question, enabling objective assessment of knowledge and practical skills. This book will also help candidates all over the world to pass highly competitive postgraduate examinations in anaesthesia. It is an invaluable educational resource for all anaesthetists.

A View from the Head End Medical cartoons to ease the pain

ISBN: 978 1 903378 42 7
Paperback
Pub date: September 2005
Retail price: GBP £14.95

By S Yentis FRCA Consultant Anaesthetist, Magill Dept. of Anaesthesia, Intensive Care & Pain Management, Chelsea & Westminster Hospital, London, UK

Choosing an easy life as an anaesthetist over the cut and thrust of art college, Steve Yentis has been drawing medical cartoons for the last 20 years, whilst waiting for surgeons to turn up or his regional blocks to work. This collection of drawings represents a wry look at life in the operating theatre, wards and clinic, as seen from the Head End, which is, of course, by far the more important end.

Appealing to anyone who has ever worked in a hospital, this book will help pass the time during those long periods of inactivity between audit meetings. Exam candidates in particular will find it contributes absolutely nothing to their chances of success.
