Great flight for two hours on a beautiful morning today. Took off over mist-shrouded fields and landed 82km and two hours later back at the Altona airstrip to find a large group of PPG and microlight pilots chatting in the sunshine… and offering me a fresh up of coffee. Can it get better?
…at Red Cross Children’s this beautiful evening. Forgive me these gratuitous shots, but Cape Town truly delivered the most beautiful autumn evenings. Having floor-to-ceiling windows in the theatre certainly helps. Now, back to work…
What a whirlwind! The 2014 South African Society of Anaesthesiologist’s national congress has come and gone, and the full 6 days are a barely distinguishable blur in my mind. After presenting 5 talks and workshops, sitting in every lecture I could attend and the nearly daily evening functions I am completely exhausted but still exhilarated. Kudos to the organisers and staff.
As usual, I have made a set of rough notes, which you may download here. Please feel free to share the link if they are useful. Beware that there may be errors or misunderstandings, as I take these down in real time during the talks and often only write what I consider to the be core messages. There are some links in the notes to other web resources and presentations. My presentations are accessible here. Click the link below to open and/or download the full set of my rough notes:
If you are a speaker or have resources you’d like hosted online for open access, I am very happy to facilitate this free of charge (I maintain this site at my own expense, and am dedicated to open science and education). You comments are welcomed – post below or drop me a mail.
Here is a gratuitous photo from Sun City and my rough notes from the 2014 SASA Congress Refresher Course. Please accept with the usual caveats regarding possible errors and being an incomplete impression. Some fascinating talks. Also, I have below a link to Dr Eric Hodgson’s slides on from his talk on Cardiac Failure. Enjoy!
Time flies like an arrow; fruit flies like a banana.
The annual congress of the South African Society of Anaesthesiologists has come around again, so I’ll be trying to post my traditional rough notes in one or two editions a day. Please note the usual disclaimers about this being my own interpretation, not reviewed, etc yada fishpaste.
