  Guys helppppppppppppp...Do we need to discharge each and every pt even if he is of tension pneumothorax,aortic dissection,cardiac tamponade,or case may end when the acute emergency is well managed..and probably shifted to ward/icu...need uer inputs

Brother this is the CD provided by the FSMB when u enrol for the test.Everyone taking step-3 recieves tht,so dont worry if u have registered rt now,it must be coming or else go to i guess from there u can download these 5 of luck

  erythro: My exam is also in a few days. I don't think we need to discharge every patient. Just review order, for safe side, I would also advise/educate pt at the end even he is still in hospital.

I'm not sure either, since I have not done my exam yet.

Good luck.

I can't say for sure, but it is reasonable that you have to finish certain amount work to get pay. if 5 mins pop up, I try to understand it as endpoint, which it means at this time and location have you done what you should have done either work up or continue monitor or discharge, and I will not look at it as the end of the case....never end, until the borad tells you so. That is just my opinion, I think people have taken the exam will have more accurate idea.
