Paediatric Retrieval

When I’m not working in the emergency department, playing with my children or doing DFTB ‘stuff’ I work for the state retrieval service.

New requests for old diseases

This post is a written version of a talk by Dr Andrew Weatherall delivered at the South African Society of Anaesthesiologists Congress in 2017.

Kids Prehospital care Here and There

This is the written version of a talk by Dr Andrew Weatherall for the South African Society of Anesthesiologists Congress 2017, just held in Johannesburg. It’s probably just about the shiny things.
