About the Authors
  • The second edition of the hugely popular The Clinical Anaesthesia Viva Book builds on the success of the first by providing a thorough review of short and long case questions typically given to Final FRCA viva candidates. An introductory chapter gives invaluable practical advice on preparation for the viva. This is followed by almost 100 short cases and 25 long cases, all based on viva questions posed at recent examinations. Answers have been constructed from a combination of popular textbooks, recent publications and the extensive practical experience of the authors. Short further reading lists are provided for more in-depth preparation. Written by a team of expert consultants and senior trainees with (successful!) experience of the Final FRCA, this second edition of The Clinical Anaesthesia Viva Book, is a must-have for anyone preparing for the Final FRCA viva.

    • Comprises a wide range of specimen questions and answers written by a team of experienced consultants and recent (successful) FRCA candidates
    • Valuable hints and tips on how to prepare for the viva
    • The full gamut of clinical scenarios encountered in the viva are covered - the most comprehensive viva book available
