Tomorrows physics tut

Hi guys,

Tomorrows tut will be held at CMJAH, not Bara, at 16:30. Here are a few questions I would like you to have a look at. I apologise for sending them out so late. For the guys writing in March try stick to time limits.

1. Discuss how theatre fires occur and how they can be prevented. (20 marks)

2. Tabulate the different types of LASERs used in clinical practice. Make mention of the application and the specific characteristics of the individual LASERs. (10 marks)

3. Write short notes on the production of LASER light. Use diagrams to explain your answer if necessary. (10 marks)

4. Explain the physiological principles underlying the use of haemodialysis in a patient with CRF. (15 marks)

Kind regards,

Dr Kays tut
