  1. The development of a scoring tool for the measurement of performance in managing hypotension and intra-operative cardiac arrest during spinal anaesthesia for caesarean section

    The development of a scoring tool for the measurement of performance in managing hypotension and intra-operative cardiac arrest during spinal anaesthesia for caesarean section

    Item type: Journal Article • Journal: Southern African Journal of Anaesthesia and Analgesia
    Background: At level one hospitals in South Africa a high annual number of maternal deaths occur due to the unrecognised/untreated complications of spinal anaesthesia. The authors developed a clinical scenario and scoring system to measure intern performance in managing hypotension...
  2. Case study: lessons from a laryngeal abscess

    Case study: lessons from a laryngeal abscess

    Item type: Journal Article • Journal: Southern African Journal of Anaesthesia and Analgesia
    This case report focuses on a patient who presented with respiratory distress and with a background history of asthma. The underlying pathology is explored, as well as the diagnostic error that could have resulted in serious complications.
  3. Heart rate variability predicts 30-day all-cause mortality in intensive care units

    Heart rate variability predicts 30-day all-cause mortality in intensive care units

    Item type: Journal Article • Journal: Southern African Journal of Anaesthesia and Analgesia
    Background: Autonomic nervous function, as quantified by heart rate variability (HRV), has shown promise in predicting clinically important outcomes in the critical care setting; however, there is debate concerning its utility. HRV analysis was assessed as a practical tool for...
  4. Outcomes 30 days after ICU admission: the 30DOS study

    Outcomes 30 days after ICU admission: the 30DOS study

    Item type: Journal Article • Journal: Southern African Journal of Anaesthesia and Analgesia
    Background: The spectrum of illness and long-term outcome of critically ill patients admitted to intensive care units (ICUs) in South Africa remains largely unknown.
  5. Perioperative ARDS and lung injury: for anaesthesia and beyond

    Perioperative ARDS and lung injury: for anaesthesia and beyond

    Item type: Journal Article • Journal: Southern African Journal of Anaesthesia and Analgesia
    Postoperative pulmonary complications are common and may be associated with significant cost. Acute respiratory distress syndrome (ARDS), a life-threatening respiratory disease process characterised by hypoxaemia and reduced lung compliance, is one of the more serious pulmonary complications. The development of...
  6. A NOTE ON GENERALISED SHIFTS

    A NOTE ON GENERALISED SHIFTS

    Item type: Journal Article • Journal: Quaestiones Mathematicae
    A necessary and sufficient condition for a generalised shift on two symbols to be one-to-one is given. The criterion also holds when applied directly to shifts on more than two symbols. Two examples to illustrate the results are included.
  7. A POINTWISE CONVERGENCE THEOREM FOR SOME ERGODIC MEANS

    A POINTWISE CONVERGENCE THEOREM FOR SOME ERGODIC MEANS

    Item type: Journal Article • Journal: Quaestiones Mathematicae
    A pointwise convergence theorem is proved for automorphisms with quasi-discrete spectrum.
  8. PRE-INDEPENDENCE BEHAVIOUR, MORPHOMETRICS AND TRAPPING OF FLEDGLING REDBREASTED SPARROWHAWKS

    PRE-INDEPENDENCE BEHAVIOUR, MORPHOMETRICS AND TRAPPING OF FLEDGLING REDBREASTED SPARROWHAWKS

    Item type: Journal Article • Journal: Ostrich: Journal of African Ornithology
    Simmons, Robert. 1984. Pre-independence behaviour, morphometrics and trapping of Redbreasted Sparrowhawks. Ostrich 55:158-162.
