MCQs

All MCQs were sourced from the black bank. There is also a past paper, sourced from where I know not.

I went through them all and tried to give the correct or best answers where able (highlighted in yellow). I also made some brief notes where relevant.

I’ve split up the answered MCQs into different sub-sections:

New MCQs

Old Pharmacology MCQs

Old Physiology MCQs

Respiratory Physiology

The notes follow roughly the chapters in West. But in a format where every nuance of a sentence isn’t important. And furthermore, it’s not written like a novel.

All notes are in .pdf format

1.Airway Anatomy

2.Lung Anatomy & Function

3.Ventilation

4.Diffusion

5.Blood Flow & Other Functions

6.V-Q Relationships

7.Gas Transport

8.Mechanics of Breathing

9.Control of Ventilation

10.Functional Respiratory Responses

11.Respiratory Misc

Old Physiology MCQs

Sections mirror old MCQs as categorised in the black bank as of approx Jan 2014.

I would caution spending too much time on these old MCQs. The money might be in the new section on this site.

Remember: 25% of questions are lifted word for word from the last paper.  25% are from ‘previous papers’, and 50% should be new.

Respiratory

Renal

Neurophysiology

Muscle & NMJ

Measurement

Maternal & Neonatal

GIT

Fluid & Electrolyte

Endocrine

CVS

Blood & Immunology

Basic Physiology

Acid Base

Definitions (especially important for the viva)

Definitions extended (new for 2018). Thanks to Melvin Chong & Brian Chen for this very comprehensive document!

Diagram or Die (large file). The tutors at the CHCH revision course recommended a list of diagrams you must know and be able to draw. It’s frigin long, but generally spot on. I collated them all together, with some salient points on the side.

Respiratory Equations (summary of various Resp equations)

Physiology Cheat Sheet (handwritten notes of important graphs/key points for SAQs)

Pharmacology Cheat Sheet (handwritten notes of important data for SAQs)
