There are a few announcements I wanted to make including:
Check out pedsanesthesia.net. Dr. Robert Greenberg, a pediatric anesthesiologist here at Johns Hopkins runs it and it has lots of great information and topics in pediatric anesthesiology.
If you have suggestions for a better website than this one please let me know!
If you know a good way to set up an email list serve for these kinds of announcements please let me know that as well.
And, finally, I address a surgeon’s comment to one of our residents that you should always use 100% fio2 when ventilating one lung during a thoracic case. Listen to the podcast for details but the bottom line is you should NOT use 100% oxygen unless you have to in order to prevent hypoxia.
Here is a link to a great review on this topics published last year in Critical Care: https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/26278383
