The January issue of Anaesthesia and Intensive Care discusses the use of strychnine for the treatment of shock in the cover note, while the editorial Correctly name your poison by L.S. Weber reports on the use of new drug names as decreed by the Therapeutic Goods Administration.

In their Review Left ventricular outflow tract obstruction—be prepared! Evans et al recommends that the presence of dynamic left ventricular outflow tract obstruction in a hypotensive critically ill patient should always be considered.

webAIRS is a web-based de-identified anaesthesia incident reporting system, which was introduced in Australia and New Zealand in September 2009. Gibbs et al emphasises that incident reporting allows anaesthetists to learn from the collective experiences of their colleagues.

Abraham et al has conducted a study over two years at a tertiary hospital, in order to determine the aetiology of preoperative anaemia in a cohort of patients undergoing elective cardiac surgery. The study demonstrated that about one-third of our patients with preoperative anaemia had evidence of iron deficiency and hence, a potentially reversible cause of anaemia.

The Welfare of anaesthesia trainees survey by Downey et al has been designed to investigate levels of stress, anxiety or depression and to identify factors compounding or relieving stress in anaesthesia trainees within the ANZCA training scheme.

Edelman et al’s Case Report details the cases of three patients transferred on veno-arterial extracorporeal membrane oxygenation (VA ECMO) from a tertiary referral hospital to an ECMO centre and highlights the benefits of such a transfer.

Abstracts of the recent Australian Society of Anaesthetists 75th National Scientific Congress held in Melbourne, are also featured in this issue.
