The 21st Bubble Wrap – Live


With millions upon millions of journal articles being published every year it is impossible to keep up.  Every month we usually ask some of our friends from PERUKI (Paediatric Emergency Research in UK and Ireland) to point out something that has caught their eye. This time we are doing something different. To coincide with DFTB18 in Melbourne here are the papers chosen by our Bubble Wrap Live! team.
