The purpose of this pre-rotation test is to assess your current knowledge of basic critical care principles. Please answer each question to the best of your ability. After answering each of the questions, you will have the opportunity to grade your test and receive a list of study topics for questions you answered incorrectly. Use this information to determine areas of weakness in your knowledge base and guide your reading during the rotation. The results of this test do not play a role in your final evaluation, but completing this test is required before starting your time in the intensive care unit.
The point of both the pre- and post-test is to guide your studying towards the most important areas of critical care. You will take the same test at the end of your rotation. Study the topics that you miss on this test and the post-test will be a breeze!
