Dr Andrew Weatherall was asked to do a talk

Just a little prick

Putting a cannula in kids can be… well, an experience. Dr Andrew Weatherall has a collection of tips and tricks that might just be useful. Cannulas. Little people. Not always a match made in heaven.

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.
