NovPod, a beginner’s guide to anaesthetics, Episode 8: Maintenance and emergence
In episode 8, Eoin and Duncan discuss maintenance of anaesthesia and emergence from anaesthesia. We talk about the challenges and potential pitfalls of both, reflecting on lessons learned from our own novice periods along the way.
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 presented by Anaesthesia on Air, in association with the Royal College of Anaesthesia.
