Things have moved on from the days of Brutaine – holding a child down whilst trying to whip a piece of crumbling blue crayon from their snotty nostril. Now, we have a cornucopia of pharmacological agents to assist us – from ketamine and midazolam to chloral and propofol. But who should we use them with? Or, perhaps more importantly, who should we avoid them with? What precautions do we need to take to make sure that everything is just plain sailing? Listen to Deb Shellshear tell you how to make life just that little bit easier.

You can listen to this talk as you walk to work on any device that supports podcasts.
