Here’s a nostalgia evoking clip showing the old resus room in Auckland Public (now Auckland City) Hospital (hands up who remembers them!) Note the absence of gloves, the presence of MAST trousers and the extremely liberal use of various fluids. A highlight must the the RN opening a bag of blood with her teeth. Note also the very young Stephen Streat (Now A/Prof in the Auckland Dept. of Critical Care Medicine) and Ian Civil (recent past President of the Royal Australasian College of Surgeons). Fabulous. I think it’s great looking at the way things were, it helps us to better understand where we are now and where we are going.
