NovPod, a beginner’s guide to anaesthetics, Episode 6: Drugs, part 1

It's all to play for as Eoin challenges our guest Dr Rahul Bandopadhyay to a "just a minute"-style quiz on anaesthetic drugs that we use every day. Tune in to episode 12 to find out who will be crowned NovPod "champion" and winner of the much-coveted golden ETT.

The Novpod: a beginner's guide to anaesthetics is created, edited, and co-hosted by Dr Eoin Dore and Dr Duncan Kemp. We are two anaesthetic registrars on a mission to help our new anaesthetic colleagues get to know some of the new concepts you will come across in your novice period, hopefully helping to take away any anxiety around starting your time in anaesthetics.

The NovPod is hosted by Anaesthesia on Air, and created in association with the Royal College of Anaesthetists.
