Clinical Examination Resources

SCE Resources

How to Be A Doctor              A document summarising the Clinical Examination handbook, which is a guide to Short and Long Cases.

Short Cases Template          A vital document that you must learn from front to back. Be able to perform each examination smoothly and quickly – this is a performance, not real medicine. Practice on your cat / significant other. Take it with you as you trawl around the wards pestering those poor patients unfortunate enough to have been listed as “good for examination”.

Heart Murmurs                    A fantastic document to support the “Short Cases Template”.

ABG Resources

How To Interpret ABG’s         How to read an ABG. Make your own proforma and follow it for every ABG. Do ABG’s again, and again, and again, and again. Learn your formulae and practice the arithmetic. You do get it in the end.

ABG VAQ’s                Every ABG VAQ known to man. You should have done each one at least once. You should have done each ACEM ABG at least three times.
