I would like to invite everyone to attend the SPANZA Paediatric Anaesthetic Update meeting to be held at GCUH on February 29th next year. This meeting is a fantastic opportunity to hear local and interstate speakers give practical updates on a variety of paediatric anaesthetic topics. We are also running three workshops to get some hands on experience but numbers are limited so get in quick! It is open to all anaesthetists, anaesthetic registrars, nurses and anaesthetic technicians so please invite your colleagues and assistants. Registrations are open at;
Looking forward to seeing you there!
Dates for this year’s Grand Rounds are;
Don’t forget you can claim 2 hours (4 credits) under “Practice Evaluation – Case Discussions/Conferencing”, attendance certificates are issued on the night.

Due to conflicts with every other date we could come up with, Stuart Greenway from Admedus has offered to hold a nerve block workshop in the evening on Friday, 28th July and it’s at GCPH! There will be a couple of presenters, an u/s machine and the usual food and drink. The company felt that for a workshop with small numbers and a short time, it would be difficult applying to ANZCA for higher points.
Still, it is an opportunity for those who do blocks in particular to network with others and discuss any problems they be having with equipment, assistants or their working environment. GCPH is close to GCUH and I would hope that the change of venue may attract some anaesthetists who work at both hospitals and find the trip to Pindara for other meetings a little difficult. It is a Friday but it should be over by 7.30!
I am trying the occasional Wednesday and here is a new venue. Please make every effort to support these local meetings!

The topic is a case presentation and review of the literature by me on ‘myasthenia gravis and anaesthesia – is it all now just a non-event?’ I would hope that others might also have contributions to the discussion. The venue is the boardroom, Pindara Hospital. Note that this is located in the main hospital at the end of the corridor leading from the main entrance in Allchurch St. 5.30 for 6. Food and drink supplied. Sponsored by Stephen Shields from MSD, the distributers of sugammadex, who will give a short presentation from 5.45. Surgeons interested in the topic are welcome to attend.

Although I distributed notices of these dates earlier, I apologise for this late reminder. This Friday, Helen Crilly will present several cases of anaphylaxis that profile the presentation and management of this gut-tightening anaesthetic emergency. The venue is the boardroom of Pindara Hospital, situated at the end of the main entrance corridor. 5.30 for 6. Food and drink supplied. Please RSVP for catering purposes.
The sponsor will be Nicole Marr from Teleflex, who are the current marketing agents in Australia for the LMA range of products. LMA have recently released a couple of new and exciting (well, for me, anyway) products.
