Kudos to ANZCA for publishing this excellent open access resource on acute pain management . It has a prehospital analgesia chapter that is a must read!

Capturing the Perfect Pose

Andrew Weatherall shares a bit on considerations when helping people take pictures right the first time.  Anaesthetists spend a lot of time thinking about tweaking the perfect anaesthetic.

Animal Wrangling

Synchrony or adicction, by Carles Calaf

It was a summer morning. Those where the heat and humidity of the Mediterranean fall you by your back the first thing in the morning.I had an appoinment with him.

This is the blog post version of a talk given by Andrew Weatherall (@AndyDW_) at the Paediatric Anaesthesia Congress of South Africa, 2015 held in jacaranda-bedazzled Johannesburg. There were no financial disclosures or conflicts of interest to put out there. When I was first given this topic for it read like this: “Anaesthesia for the Patient […]

The Podcast Ep 1 – TIVA in Kids

OK. So we would like there to be more than one way this site interacts with the big wide world of people providing perioperative care (and sometimes just critical care) for kids.
