This is also a pretty look link for additional questions.

thanks elemenz and boggu, these sights will be more helpful if its more interactive than just discussing regarding about how much portion each one has completed.

There are so many questions that do not have answers, we should be able to put across such questions on sdn and discuss the answers. I am taking my exams on 9th and i am totally running out of time otherwise i would have posted all those questions on sdn.

If you have read by previous posts on emergency medicine, u will find the answers discussed by the sdners, which was really nice with different views by so many of them. But sadly it-stopped right there!!

guys it will be nice if u can post these questions on sdn and work on it a little.

So many of them have given their exams, it will be really useful if people come back and make an entry of those questions. That way we can keep track of new and old questions that are repeated.

best of luck to u both too.

Pinktooth and kajal hope you enjoy answering these q's. Thanks for your help on emergeny med q's.

take care
