Gasnet has been busy in the last few weeks with posts from all over the world on a multitude of topics. Some academic, some of more personal interest.
So what have we been discussing recently:
- The joys of anaesthetic induction via non-standard routes eg rectal thiopentone and intramuscular ketamine.
Experiences and anecdotes abound especially from some of our more senior members!
- Timing of cancer-related bowel surgery in a patient with a very recent stroke (cerebrovascular accident).
Lots of anecdotal opinions and some useful tips.
- Experiences and opinions regarding the ‘Memsorb CO2 removal technique’.
An interesting technique but seems to use a lot of air and oxygen that then goes to waste.
- Yet another string of publications withdrawn because of research misconduct including accounts of how these are discovered form one of our long time Gasnet members.
- Discussion of the current mouse epidemic in Australia:
Immediately followed by all sorts of shenanigans and comments about various pestilences and plagues from biblical times!
- Access to drugs in the operating room and the love-hate relationship especially in the USA with automatic drug dispensing machines.
