Inhalational agents



The Primary () and Final () FRCA examinations require an extensive knowledge of inhalational agents. We have therefore written a new educational resource section on Inhalational Agents. The tutorials have been tailored to the FRCA syllabus and we have also added some past questions relevant to these topics.

 Primary FRCA Syllabus


Systematic Pharmacology


Anaesthetic gases and vapours

Q. Primary viva:

What are the characteristics of an ideal inhalational agent..define oil-gas coefficient and MAC-why are they important?..how do isoflurane, desflurane and sevoflurane stand in these characteristics?

 

 Final FRCA Syllabus


 

Applied Clinical Pharmacology



Inhalational anaesthesia: Control of alveolar tension during induction and recovery…control of anaesthetic depth and prevention of awareness …management of malignant hyperthermia.
