SASA 2014 – Rough Notes – Full Set

SASA 2014 Synergy Logo

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.
