This piece is a conversation with friends of ours at Medtronic. Now is an interesting and resource-scarce time for everyone in medicine; Medtronic made huge waves here with their support of the Ventilator Training App, today we ask them about where it's at and how things are changing in the world of medical technology. How does product development actually work these days? How important have standards of proof become? Should we celebrate the fact hardware appears to be being pushed toward a similar evidence standard needed to take a new drug to market? How are research and development...

"Just having more staff doesn't always equate to better care, especially when the staff do not have the skills required." Perioperative medicine has the opportunity to lead the way in advanced practice; the extended role of the practitioner within the perioperative pathway can be done with nurses, allied health professionals or physician associates. As we evolve these roles, we must be mindful and recognise not all services will be the same. How can you tailor your service to your specific needs? How do you construct a business case which provides a better quality of value based care within...

How reliable and well understood is the data behind it? Also, what are the current thoughts on perioperative steroids? How do we refocus and move back to enhanced recovery after surgery rather than "enhanced discharge" after surgery. Presented by Monty Mythen and Desiree Chappell with Sol Aronson, tenured Professor at Duke University, and their guests Henrik Kehlet, a gastrointestinal surgeon and former professor of surgery,...

"My first thought was - why can't we do this here?" What is ketamine, what sort of drug is it and how is it used? How was it first synthesized? Was it intentionally found or another of science's happy accidents? This piece is a fascinating look into the history and future of ketamine with a focus on outpatient infusion centers. Could this unusual and "dirty" drug - meaning it acts on many parts of the body and is not fully understood - have incredibly useful consequences for people who face the grueling task of handling depression or a post traumatic stress disorder?
