Revision Notes in Intensive Care Medicine is a key resource for candidates preparing for postgraduate intensive care examinations. Mapped to the FFICM, EDIC and FCICM syllabuses, this title ensures candidates have all the information needed to prepare for their examinations. Information is presented in concise note form and bullet points with visually memorable tools, such as tables and diagrams, making revising and retaining key facts easier. Chapters are arranged into physiological systems, such as 'Respiratory Intensive Care' and 'Obstetric Intensive Care', and are subdivided into major clinical issues within each chapter so specific areas of further study can be found easily. Drawing from the authors' experiences as successful candidates, and carefully reviewed by consultants, Revision Notes in Intensive Care Medicine provides the foundation for postgraduate intensive care exam revision.
