This study guide includes in-depth coverage of past FFICM exam material, and is an invaluable resource for trainees preparing for the OSCE examination in intensive care medicine. A structured layout gives the reader clear and convenient access to a wealth of model questions and answers that can be used for quick-fire practice or more detailed study. The book is divided into four sections covering data interpretation, equipment, ethics and communication, and resuscitation and simulation. Questions have been matched to the curriculum, ensuring accurate and comprehensive revision guidance, and a sample marking scheme is provided to assist with exam preparation. Incorporating recommendations from the FFICM Court of Examiners, additional data analysis, images and ECGs are included to build on common areas of potential improvement.
