Journal of Perioperative Practice - June 2007

The June 2007 issue of this journal includes articles on:

Safety (an opinion piece);
Clinical pathway in fluid management;
Decontamination and traceability of flexible endoscopes;

There is also a summary of a Cochrane review on drugs to prevent postoperative nausea and vomiting, and a piece by Harold Ellis on the history of the Hopkins rod-lens system, a fibre optic system used in endoscopes. Harold Hopkins, I notice, was born in Leicester, although he worked at the University of Reading. You can read a DNB article about him, and see the results of a PubMed search for articles about him.

This Library has the journal in print. There is no online version, although it is available to the NHS in England through Proquest - go to and search for the word "perioperative". You will need an NHS Athens username and if you are one of "my" ODP students reading this, you can ask me for a reminder about this! The June issue is not in Proquest yet.
