We hypothesise that wearables could transform perioperative care, including through facilitating early-discharge, a key tenant of Enhanced Recovery After Surgery (ERAS), by enabling remote patient monitoring of physiological & functional variables.

Imports fitbit data, via the web API and fitbitr package, into R.
Background & aims Subdural haemorrhage after epidural is a rare complication, which can pose diagnostic challenge given the varied differentials for intrapartum headache. We present a 30-year-old fit and well female at 40 weeks and 2 days gestation with an epidural uneventfully sited.
Background eCPR is a complex process requiring multiple team members to conduct technical procedures in a coordinated, time-critical fashion. Simulation has an increasingly well recognised role in medical training, particularly in the field of critical care, allowing non-technical skills to be honed and logistical challenges to be identified and solutions sought in a safe environment.
