Yes, we have a meeting next Friday. I’ve been trying to encourage others to share their clinical experience in their respective areas of expertise but finding no great enthusiasm. I would like to lead discussion on :
- multimodal and pre-emptive management of PONV. What are your favourite mixtures?
- intrathecal morphine – damned if you do and damned if you don’t?
insertion of LMAs in the prone position – is it cowboy anaesthesia?
- If any of these topics are of interest, please come along.
The catering is by Donna Clark of Covidien. She will be demonstrating an endoscopy bite block / oral airway that looks as though someone was watching ‘Silence of the Lambs’ just before they designed it!
The format is the same as usual; 5.30 for 6 in the board room at Pindara Hospital. Food and drink supplied. Please RSVP for catering purposes.
I do know it is the depths of a rugged Gold Coast winter but if the attendance isn’t a little bit up on last month’s airway workshop, these meetings may not continue. There will be a further M&M, a medicolegal and a presentation on evidence-based perioperative antibiotic therapy later this year.
