Gasnet discussion review – 19th June 2021

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  • Yet another string of publications withdrawn because of research misconduct including accounts of how these are discovered form one of our long time Gasnet members.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.
