The Primary FRCA Structured Oral Exam Guide 1, Second Edition

by Lara Wijayasiri, Kate McCombe
  • Paperback

The Primary FRCA Structured Oral Examination Study Guide 1 is the definitive revision aid to the Primary FRCA structured oral examination. This second edition is revised and updated in line with the new Royal College of Anaesthetists ‘Guide to the Primary FRCA’, with over 20 new topics to reflect changes to the RCoA’s model questions and major revisions to graphs, diagrams and many of the pre-existing sections.

Packed with new guidelines and current hot topics, this first volume covers physiology and physics. The nearly 50 physiology topics covered include lung function, hypoxia, acid–base balance, pain pathways, oxygen transport, cerebral blood flow and more. Nearly 30 physics topics are covered including gas laws, oxygen measurement, cardiac output monitoring, safety features of the anaesthetic machine, resuscitation bags and valves, depth of anaesthesia monitoring and more. The second edition of this hugely popular book is improved in clarity and content but stays true to the pragmatic approach adopted by the authors in the first edition.
