Journal Club is back!
The use of anaesthesia is common among all surgical specialties and involves the maintenance of normal physiology and avoidance of complications both during surgery and post-operatively.
This month we will look at two trials researching the avoidance of post-operative nausea and vomiting; and residual neuromuscular block followed by a discussion of a student’s research into the same topic.
Anyone who is interested is welcome. Come along and join us!
Date: Wednesday, August 23rd 2017
Time: 6:00 – 7:00 pm
Venue: RPAH Institute of Academic Surgery
Topic: Anaesthetics and Post Operative Complications
