STH Consultant CPD Updates: Top Anaesthesia/ICM Papers of 2017

This is the summary of the PowerPoint presentations from this Decembers’ consultant CPD teaching programme.

This month’s session provided an update  in line with the Royal College of Anaesthetists Matrix.

The aim of this session was to review the “top” papers published during 2017 in the anaesthesia and intensive care medicine. The papers chosen weren’t necessarily those with the highest-impact, but rather those which would provoke debate amongst the attendees.

The slide summaries can be downloaded from the links below.
