Intensive Care Medicine MCQs – Multiple Choice Questions with Explanatory Answers
Intensive Care Medicine MCQs – Multiple Choice Questions with Explanatory Answers This book contains three 90-question multiple choice papers designed to test the candidate’s knowledge of intensive care medicine (ICM) and their ability to apply it. Each paper begins with 60 multiple true false (MTF) questions consisting of a stem and five statements, each requiring a true or false answer. These are followed by 30 single best answer (SBA) questions where a clinical vignette is presented with five possible solutions. The candidate should select the one that best addresses the problem, mirroring clinical practice where a case usually has several possible approaches.
Topics have been chosen to cover the breadth of knowledge required of the modern intensivist, including resuscitation, diagnosis, disease management, organ support, applied anatomy, end-of-life care and applied basic sciences. There is a strong focus on the evidence base underpinning the specialty, making this book particularly useful for physicians and others approaching professional examinations in ICM and related acute medical and surgical specialties.
There is no ‘pass mark’, although a score of less than four out of five in an MTF question or an incorrect response to an SBA question should help the candidate identify areas where they would benefit from further reading. Each question is accompanied by a detailed and fully referenced answer; the majority of references are freely accessible online or through institutional subscriptions.
