In recent years the basic science viva of the Final FRCA has evolved a more clinical perspective. The new edition of the highly successful Anaesthesia Science Viva Book incorporates this new clinical emphasis, giving candidates an insight into the way the viva works, offering general guidance on exam technique, and providing readily accessible information relating to a wide range of potential questions. Questions are divided broadly into the four areas covered by the exam: applied anatomy, physiology, pharmacology and clinical measurement. Answers have been constructed to provide candidates with more than enough detail to pass the viva. Covering the full scope of the basic science syllabus, and written by an experienced FRCA examiner, The Anaesthesia Science Viva Book, Second Edition, is an essential purchase for every anesthesia student.

Editorial Reviews

"This is one of the most readable review books for a certification exam that I have come across. The information is interesting and the answers are appropriate for an eight-minute discussion during an oral exam. Mastery of the topics in this book will surely leave a candidate well prepared for an oral exam on the clinical science underlying the contemporary practice of anesthesia."
