SAVEd anaesthesia & ICM

The Self-IsolAting Virtual Education project was set up by trainees who were self-isolating during the Covid-19 pandemic.
These virtual tutorials were created by either a trainee or a consultant in the North West deanery to help study for the IAC, primary, final anaesthesia & FICM exams. 
  • Tutorial videos: Click on each topic link, and it will direct you to the video of the tutorial.
  • Original slides: To gain access to the original slides, just click on the link next to each presentation. 
  • Feedback form: Click on the feedback form link next to each tutorial. Please complete this once you have finished the tutorial and you will be sent a confirmation message of completion for your portfolio.
  • CPD points: Completion of each presentation will be awarded with 0.5 local CPD points, approved by the NW deanery.  
Please follow us on twitter @saved_anaes & join our facebook group SAVEd anaesthesia & ICM
