Anaesthesia and Intensive Care is an educational journal for those associated with anaesthesia, intensive care medicine and pain medicine

The Latest 


In the July issue we farewell Dr Neville Gibbs, Chief Editor of Anaesthesia and Intensive Care for the last six years; and welcome A/Prof John Loadsman, as incoming Chief Editor. Dr Gibbs will continue on as an editor for the AIC, and we look forward to working with A/Prof Loadsman in his new position. On behalf of all the production team at Anaesthesia and Intensive Care, we would like to thank Neville for his hard work, diligence and guidance as Chief.

R. Westhorpe and P. Seal remember Dr Noel Cass, who was a long-serving member of the Editorial Board of Anaesthesia and Intensive Care.

You’ll notice this issue’s cover is a change! We have a fascinating covernote on the Introduction of Intravenous Crystalloids, relating back to the depiction of the “appearance after death of a victim to the Indian Cholera”.

Ever wondered if your patient is aware under general anaesthesia? Leslie et al have conducted a study analysing the incidents related to awareness during GA in the first 4000 cases reported to webAIRS. It turns out, there are more memorable surgery experiences than there should be!

We’re also featuring a pilot study by Peyton et al on the effect of a perioperative ketamine infusion on the incidence of chronic postsurgical pain. The authors undertook the study at three hospitals to assess the feasibility of a proposed large multicentre placebo-controlled randomised trial of IV perioperative ketamine to reduce the incidence of CPSP.

Does anyone ever expect to die? Anstey et al have asked this very question when embarking on a prospective single-day observational study across 46 Australian hospitals. They sought to identify how prepared patients entering the ICU were for the possibility that they may not leave. Their findings have prompted recommendations that are a must read.

As always we have a number of Correspondence for those looking for a lighter read; and this issue features the Proceedings of the 12th International Conference on Rapid Response Systems and Medical Emergency Teams.
