The BAPO podcast

Mike Saunders presents a series of educational webinars with discussions around paediatric topics that will inform trainees , speciality doctors and consultants  alike. The national and international faculty will give us perspectives from around the world. Enjoy Saunders sparring with the experts whilst doing battle with the tech and zoom.com.

Laryngomalacia and vocal cord palsy

Mike Kuo and Mike Saunders host a fascinating discussion about two of the most common challenges in paediatric airway. They are joined by Hasnaa Ismail-Koch, Neil Bateman and Ben Hartley. Don't miss Mike's laryngomalacia impression at 11.50 = worth the admission fee alone! Mr Saunders pretending that he knew what an aerophagia bottle was, another highlight! Actually a really interesting, informative and spirited discussion.

Congenital Neck Abnormalities   

A discussion about Branchial anomalies and thyroglossal duct cysts. Mike Saunders and Mike Kuo are delighted to have our friends John Russell , Haytham Kubba and Kara Prickett (all the way from Atlanta!) to discuss this very challenging area adding Scottish, Irish and US perspectives! Extra points if you can identify the non muted breach of zoom etiquette culprit -c'mon people we aren't animals!
