    The FICM doesn't produce a logbook for ICM trainees, or for anaesthesia trainees undertaking their ICM blocks. It does, howver, expect trainees to keep one and complete a logbook summary to their specification. I have produced a logbook that meets the requirements of the FICM. As far as I am aware, it is the only logbook available that gathers all the required information. The 2 versions of the logbook (one for anaesthetists and one for ICM trainees) can be downloaded, free of charge, from our departmental website
