STH Consultant CPD Updates: Transfusion Medicine

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

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

This was covered by Dr Phil Dobson and Dr Stelios Michael (Consultant Anaesthetists, Sheffield Teaching Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust). The aim was to give an update on transfusion practice and transfusion triggers. Please click the link for a copy of the presentations.

 

RCoA Winter Symposium: Controversies in Peri-operative Practice – Collars in the Coffin?

This is a copy of the slides I used during a talk I gave at the Royal College of Anaesthetists Winter Symposium which was entitled “Controversies in Peri-operative Practice”. (RCoA, November, 2016). The full programme of the meeting can be found here.

The talk topic I asked to deliver was “Collars in the Coffin?” and was designed to look at the evidence for spinal immobilisation in the trauma patient.

NACCS Update: Immediate Management of Cervical Spine Injuries

This is a copy of the slides I used during a talk I gave at the NACCS Neuroanaesthesia and Critical Care Update Day (AAGBI November, 2016). The full programme of the meeting can be found here.

The talk was designed to look at the evidence for spinal immobilisation and the optimal technique for tracheal intubation.

2016 TBI Update

This is a summary document designed to supplement a talk I gave as part of an RCOA update day in Hull (4/11/2016). The program of the meeting can be found here. Rather than simply duplicate my slide set I have tried to give a different style of talk (based on the recommendations of @ffolliet) and so a summary is available here instead.

The talk was designed to provide an update for non-neuro anaesthetists and intensivists on the management of traumatic brain injury.

The summary document (which covers traumatic brain and cervical spine injury) including all the relevant recent references can be downloaded by clicking the link below:
