General tip. Stay confident. Speak with conviction. Use common sense and keep things simple. Remember to be safe, refer on to specialist or admit to hopsital if required and make sure you explain why you are referring and what is likely to be done
Just a question for discussion:
when you examine sensation on a diabetic patient, do you use pin prick to test pain? and why?
Thanks for the recall.
I wonder "Question 14. Adrenal Tumour and elevated urine catecholamines", it's about neuroblastoma or pheochromocytoma?
Just want to ask , why such a small No of Candidate it the exam only 18 ??
and 202 in the waiting list of Series 2 ??
So far I know few candidate appear on 25/08/07. Is it true?
would you plz give more details about the senarios like ovarian cyst in pregnancy and others
Plz don't discourage/ criticise any one for their effort . After all these feed back is very valuable for you to pass until you clear up . If someone contributes something in here it should always be appreciated .
thank you very much
