Better late than never, this episode was recorded a few weeks ago but remains nearly as relevant today, as it was then. In somewhat of Tramadol haze, Mark navigates his way through the main medical journals and poses some interesting questions concerning speciality guest appearances in ED and tobacco funded research, and imparts some friendly advice to Bex on her upcoming cycling tour. Frank does a Tomorrow's World spot and and gives us the low down on vehicular based patient monitoring, while Bex finds Anaesthesia News strangely 'uplifting'. For this month's journal paper, Rik looks at the year's biggest critical care news from the PROSEVA trial and learns how patient proning can lead to a relative risk reduction of 50% from ARDS mortality. For the first time ever, Bex is on the quiz master's chair for BorB and Frank gets burned by the unlikely tag team of a recovery nurse and a cardiology SHO.

There's loads in the news this month as we whizz through the big medical journals learning that most research findings are in fact false, and insisting on gown and gloves in ICU reduces the number of room entries, just not the spread of resistant organisms. Bex dodges her rant and instead delivers a new feature 'Rebecca's Rhyme', kicking off our quarterly poetry corner. Mark has an in depth look at the recent Cochrane perioperative fluid meta-analysis and we attempt to make sense of the pretty complex statistical analysis. Links to resources in this month's mega notes. It's Frank's turn to take the reigns of BorB for a fluid themed contest with a shocking result.

We're back after a brief hiatus with the same old presenters, same old theme music but a brand new format. In this episode you can look forward to cheap Nandos, instructions on how to donate your body to medical science, zombie ants and a search engine that makes the internet more palatable. Additionally there is some anaesthesia related content, with education on organ donation, work force planning news and data suggesting that there is in fact a magic number for intraoperative blood pressure, and that number is....

After three months of conferences and guest presenters we're back to our usual format with Frank, Bex, Mark and Rik talking about all things anaesthesia related. This month that includes live pets on ICU, dead pets in resuscitation science, US military agony rays and the brown note. Bex is back cheerleading for NAP while Frank tells us what (if any) difference our fancy CO monitors are making in big anaesthesia cases. Rik gets overexcited about the isolated forearm technique and Mark, as ever, is not impressed by our profession's lackadaisical approach to the adoption of non-leur spinal connectors.

We're back with a GasCast GATcast special. In this podcast we attempt to distil down three days of excellent lectures, workshops and social events into a 90 minute podcast with varying degrees of success. We've got live interviews from the floor and post-match analysis featuring some old favourites and new voices all from this year's fantastic GAT annual scientific meeting in Oxford.

We're back to our usual format this month with Sibs Anwar standing in for a holidaying Frank. Gastric ultrasound once again rears its head to provoke a contrary Dr. Salmon, priming him for this month's rant. We also look at the latest AAGBI post-anaesthesia recovery guidelines and a case report of cardiac arrest on an obstetric unit using a remifentanil PCA. All of this plus our discoveries, Biology or Bunkum and flaming hairdryers.

It's time for plan B as we all get together for the first time in over a year and attempt to record an episode around Frank's kitchen table, with variable results. Amongst quite a few uneditable mistakes, we muddle through the MHRA safety update on post-surgical codeine prescription in children, spontaneous intracranial hypotension, and IT security via the contents of Bex's laptop. All of this plus Mazda Bongos, recycling and a Biology or Bunkum replacement called Physics of Fiction.

You say lignocaine, I say lidocaine. Whatever your persuasion of pronunciation, it's all about this humble local anaesthetic in January as we proclaim it to be the 'Ketamine of 2013'. We look at some fascinating results in prehospital advanced airway management from Japan, and Frank presents some broccoli research on high tidal volumes in Cardiac ITU. Plus our New Year discoveries and a slightly smutty Biology or Bunkum.

For our Christmas special we're delighted to be joined by numbers guru and journal editor John Carlisle. John helps us look at the latest from the Surviving Sepsis Campaign, interpret the recent guidance from NICE regarding depth of anaesthesia monitoring and teaches us all how to make the perfect pancake. We've also got discoveries, rants and a festive themed Biology or Bunkum.

Focused TTE ultrasound improving long term outcomes in NOF patients? Electrically stimulating epidural catheters? It's all here this month's episode, along with achondroplastic epidurals, what to wear in birthing pools and a surprising number of 80s & 90s music references for a podcast on anaesthetics.
