The Pediatric Cardiac Surgery Inquest Report



The August 10 committee meeting

At the August 10, 1994 meeting of the committee, four matters dominated the agenda. The first was the case of a young patient with tricuspid atresia. The second was the question of where post-operative care of the pediatric cardiac patients was to occur. The third was a discussion over whether or not to proceed with a specific patient. The fourth was a proposed interim report prepared by Wiseman. Perhaps the most significant recommendation in that report was a recommendation to move to doing cases of medium risk.

Present at this meeting were Wiseman, Giddins, McNeill, Odim, Ullyot, Youngson and Seshia.
