Audit of anesthetic trainees’ ‘hands‐on’ operating room experience in an Australian tertiary children's hospital
ConclusionsExperience gained at our hospital easily meets the new College requirements. Experience of fiber‐optic intubation and regional blocks would appear insufficient to develop sufficient skills or confidence. The study provides other institutions with information to benchmark against their own trainee experience.
Hi there, I'm finalizing my rank list - I want to end up in NYC, and really liked both NYU and Sinai, trying to figure out which one to put #1. Any thoughts? They both seem pretty well supported by the administration and have pretty strong rotations (Columbia wins on peds, I know I know). Sinai definitely has a great PD, better moonlighting/scheduling/focus on resident wellness. NYU has a more fun location, better hours (as confirmed by some conversations with current residents), more... 2020 Rank List: NYU vs Sinai
Studying for OSCE. Focusing on QI. Do I have to know anything else besides PDSA or Lean six sigma. Is there anything else I need to know? Do I need to know root cause analysis? Has anyone that has taken the OSCE been asked on this?
Have any of you Democrats/Liberals/Bernie Bros considered the implication of electing Sanders as President? Do you know what he will do to this specialty? Before any of you post ridiculous comments about how the world comes first or "greater good" theory the vast majority of unions and Democrats decide to vote for candidates that help their cause, keep their jobs and pass laws helping them. This is true for auto workers, culinary workers in Vegas, coal miners, fishermen, etc. This... President Bernie Sanders
ConclusionGiven our findings, conservative treatment should be compared to surgical treatment for displaced fractures and the anterior approach should be compared to the posterior one for surgical cases.Level of evidenceIV.
ConclusionsThe absence of FUS-related histologic findings suggests that the neuromodulation and MR-ARFI protocols evaluated do not cause tissue damage.
ConclusionsFor the first time in humans, the present data show direct evidence in favour of a distributed system of connections from the posterior parietal cortex to the ipsilateral primary motor cortex. In addition, we show that dual cortical stimulation is a novel and efficient technique to investigate intraoperative brain connectivity in the anaesthetized patient.

CONCLUSION: This study shows a large proportion of post-operative oesophagectomy patients do not require ICU level support, however in the absence of a reliable pre-operative predictive tool, post-operative ICU care is still required in our setting. An individualised post-operative approach could be explored to help divert stable patients, potentially up to half of the group, away from ICU. PMID: 32078601 [PubMed - in process]
New treatments involving anaesthesia drugs and neurofeedback could soon be used for getting over a breakupNothing is quite as shattering as a broken heart. A bad breakup has been known to trigger a range of psychological and physical symptoms, from nausea and insomnia to clinical depression. In more extreme scenarios,broken heart syndrome– when a person’s heart stops pumping blood properly after an emotional shock – can lead to death.Fortunately, recent breakthroughs suggest we may soon be able to beat it. In March, aSpanish study found propofol, a sedative used for anaesthesia, may also be able to mute t...
