Once upon a time delta brought to mind the calm of meandering rivers …
can’t think of anything further from this at the moment.
Instead, I’m keeping myself distracted by ultrasound news. A particularly good animation on a new piece of research released today on ‘Why catheter-to-vein ratio matters’ – check it out and the research done by Dr Rebecca Sharp from the University of South Australia.

Nothing else to report here other than the expanding waistline so I’ll sign off.
See you next week.
