Surgical and Anaesthetic Instruments for OSCEs
This book provides an exam-focused revision guide to both anaesthetic and surgical instruments. This is a comprehensive guide to passing an exam station and includes commonly tested knowledge.
The Anaesthetic section includes airway, breathing, circulation and analgesia equipment. Surgical instruments include those used in cardiothoracic surgery, ENT, general surgery, orthopaedics and urology. Each instrument entry follows a standard format – description, indications for use, contraindications and complications. The standard format ensures that learning about each instrument and when to use it is faster and easier, thus optimising exam recall.
Fully illustrated with all the core anaesthetic and surgical instruments
Concise, easy-to-remember text
Portable and practical
Suitable for a wide range of health professionals
The instrument syllabus is a small yet significant part of many exams, and this concise study guide will benefit a wide range of medical and surgical trainees, including those sitting the FRCA and MRCS examinations. Healthcare professionals, including nurses (ward or theatre), operating department practitioners and physician assistants (PAs), will also find the content useful as an on-the-job aide.
Concepts in Surgical Critical Care
With more surgical patients requiring special perioperative care in an intensive care unit (ICU), there is an increased demand for Advanced Practice Providers (APPs) who are equipped to care for them. However, APPs such as Physician Assistants (PAs) or Nurse Practitioners (NPs) have limited specialized training and exposure to the unique needs of the perioperative critically-ill population. That’s where this book can help. Concepts in Surgical Critical Care is an indispensable resource for the APP, non-surgical intensivist, or non-intensivist surgeon who regularly provides critical care for surgical patients.
It features a user-friendly organization designed for quick reference while at the bedside of patients or in an office. It starts with foundational critical care topics across all surgical specialties and is followed by the specifics, including gastrointestinal surgery, cardiac surgery, neurosurgery, obstetrics, and more. Concepts in Surgical Critical Care is a unique resource written by APPs to help APPs provide superior care for their perioperative critically-ill patients.

Essential Radiological Anatomy for the MRCS

Over recent years the MRCS viva examination has increasingly made use of radiological imaging to facilitate the discussion of anatomy relevant to surgical practice. It is rare for junior doctors to receive adequate exposure to radiology in their day-to-day surgical practice, which makes preparation for this part of the examination difficult. For many, examinations are stressful. The last thing a candidate needs is to be faced with unfamiliar radiological images. This review of surgically relevant radiological imaging aims to prevent initial uncertainties and will allow candidates to discuss relevant anatomy and score valuable points. An invaluable addition to any revision plan, this title also: • highlights typical anatomy viva questions • familiarizes candidates with a range of images of differing modalities (plain film, fluoroscopy, computed tomography and magnetic resonance imaging) • introduces different planes of imaging, enabling candidates to deal with unusual coronal or sagittal views with confidence • gives concise but detailed notes for quick consultation
Focused Clinical Examination for MRCS Finals (OSCE)

that the candidate should cover in each station to accrue sufficient marks to
pass the clinical examination component of the OSCE. In addition, the types
of clinical scenarios and some of the commonly asked questions in the various
stations are also highlighted.
