This month we use science and research to classify a range of everyday anaesthetic items as either good or bad. We review the important and impressive EuSOS study, discuss opioid-induced hyperalgesia and look at what might the nail in the coffin for hetastarches. Mark gets excited about some more helicopter science and we play an Ig Nobel themed game of Biology or Bunkum. Sadly, Bex is absent this episode but her seat is kept warm by Sibs Anwar.

This month we're mythbusting as we try to put to bed some of the more dubious, less evidence based anaesthetic practices. In this episode we take on uncuffed ET tubes in paediatrics, lateralisation for epidurals, CVP for fluid balance and cricoid pressure. We have the second attempt at Mark's Monthly and Question of the Month returns with your chance to win a prize.

It's our second year of podcasting and in this episode, it's business as usual as we review the latest on lung protective ventilation from the BMJ and learn about the UK National Tracheostomy Safety Project. We hold the inaugural meeting of epidurals anonymous and discuss the most recent NCEPOD report on in-hospital cardiac arrests. Emboldened by recent successes, Bex decides we should start a Biology or Bunkum leader board, we are collectively repulsed by the state of Mark's scrubs and introduce our new favourite feature, Mark's Monthly.

It's our one year anniversary and we've recorded a special episode from the GAT Annual Scientific Meeting in Glasgow. Co-hosted by June Rahman and Lucy Evans, we distil down the best lectures and learning points from the conference and interview some of the excellent speakers, organisers and delegates. There's a slightly surreal web based educational meeting when GasCast meets Gasclass and we round it off with a Scottish themed Biology or Bunkum.

We're keeping it clinical this episode as we present novel uses for ultrasound in anaesthesia and intensive care. Discoveries include the thinking behind needle stylets, Mark on TV and why you should run if you meet Rik in an anaesthetic room. We've got the rest of our usual features plus a mystery celebrity anaesthetic guest! What more could you want? Free beer? We've got that too.

Grab your slide rule for this maths, stats and intrigue episode. In addition to probably the most significant anaesthetic research scandal to date, we have gigantic limbs, immensely clever statistics and a correct answer to Mark's question of the month. Bex makes us (and our patients) feel good by telling us how anaesthetic technique can influence long term outcomes and we have a laugh about nitrous oxide.

It's the ANTS episode as we look at the how your brain tries to ruin your anaesthetic. We discover gasclass - the new twitter medical education tool, FFP that takes its inspiration from Smash and find a new forum to troll. Frank reviews the latest research into drugs that might make surgeons operate faster at night and makes a Blue Peter platelet agitator out of an anaesthetic machine and an old loo roll. Be sure to check out the video on the website.

Regular listeners beware - we now have theme music! Plus, we interview Andrew Morley about anaesthesia at the Science Museum, how to get the best out of your labour epidurals and newfangled resuscitation robots. We look at the potential pitfalls of using the landmark technique for TAP blocks, Rik gets excited about Twitter Journal Club and Mark tells us how far last year's ET tubes will stretch.
