Gasnet is a community of Anaesthetists worldwide that has been using the internet as a discussion forum since the early 1990s. Yes we are over 20yrs old. Not the largest Anaesthesia (or Anaesthesiology if you prefer) forum out there, but one with some very senior members with (sometimes correct) opinions on most things.
The Gasnet Podcast was introduced in 2014 as a supplement to ongoing discussion on our email mailing list.
Initial content for the Podcast was sourced from a presentation exploring application of Internet based social media in Anaesthesia and generated significant interest. The podcast went on hiatus for a while though as the Anaesthesia community at large wasnt really ready for the move to an Audio format. We are after all conservative by nature!
But in 2018 times have changed. Podcasting is more mainstream and smart phones are more ubiquitous. Of great importance is that Google is finally starting to support Podcast consumption on its mobile operating system – Android. So its time to dust off the pop filters, wind up the gain and relaunch!
