Excellent presentation
By Alamin B. on 30. July 2021 for Anesthesia in Special Situations

Excellent presentations…I learned a lot from Dr. Brian Warriner. This is my first complete course on Anesthesia and i liked a lot. The pain management, palliative care and ICU aspect have a clinical relevance to any clinical practitioner or would be clinical practitioner. I used to think Internist usually go ICU residence but as I learned from Dr. Warriner that in Canada it is ICU program is available primarily for Anesthesiologist. Dr. Warriner will be remembered for this extraordinary Anesthesia course and I wish him peace and serenity.
