2004, Hot Cases 2

This is the last of the early papers which offered little in terms of feedback.

Apart from the pass rate and a list of pathologies which were encountered, the examiners only made three lines of comments regarding candidate performance. These three lines have been exactly the same lines for several years: "common  problems encountered  related  to  examination  technique,  detection  of  clinical  signs,  interpretation  of  clinical signs, identification of clinically significant issues and factual knowledge". These words of wisdom  were finally abandoned in late 2005-early 2006.

 

Cases encountered as hot cases included patients with:
·  multiple trauma, chest trauma, chronic inflammatory demyelinating polyneuropathy, out-of –hospital  cardiac  arrest,  vasculitis  with  renal  failure,  respiratory  failure,  renal  sepsis, cerebral haemorrhage, hypoxic cerebral injury, cardiogenic shock after cardiac surgery 

Sixteen out of twenty-eight candidates passed this section.

Comments  documented  at  the  time  of  the  clinical  examination  suggested  that  common  problems encountered  related  to  examination  technique,  detection  of  clinical  signs,  interpretation  of  clinical signs, identification of clinically significant issues and factual knowledge.
