Site content reflects the diverse interests of the authors (perioperative medicine, pain medicine, anaesthesia, intensive care, general medicine and computer programming). We have tried to stimulate interest and controversy, in keeping with a focus on education, rather than extensive documentation or medical stereotyping. This is basically an educational site, sponsored only by the Google ads we've placed strategically!
This page is an overview of a complex site which sometimes verges on the chaotic! The arbitrary categories which follow aren't meant to represent some sort of rigid ontology --- they are simply navigational aids. Many topics fit into more than one 'category'. Enjoy the diversity!
