Just me today.  Ironically I have to postpone an interview with a paediatrician due to my son being sick.  

So instead I am covering some of the topics people have asked me about including acne management and because I love a bit of medical history, I am talking about the interesting history of anaesthesia. Finally I was stimulated by a recent RACGP AFP article to talk about the importance of assessing lifestyle history in detail to personalise and optimise lifestyle therapy.
