It’s been a while since I’ve posted anything to the site, but I wanted to get this up in time to wish you all a very happy holiday season! It’s going up a little later in the month than intended, largely due to a virus that decided to set up shop in my larynx for a week. There are a few comments from the peanut gallery (my 7-month-old kitten) in the audio, so I apologize for the occasional meows.
I just got back from ACEP a few weeks ago, and I wanted to share some of the great stuff that has just come out in the literature regarding the management of the critically ill patient in the ED. So I picked 8 of the papers that I thought you could all apply immediately to your practice, so please enjoy! As always, please feel free to leave thoughts or feedback, and if you’d like to get an hour of CME for watching this, go get the CME quiz from the link above and send it on in.
A few shout outs this month . . . for the great Christmas tune, the group is the very talented Straight no Chaser, a professional men’s a cappella group that started out at my own Indiana University. And for his fantastic ED critical care blog and podcast, Dr Scott Weingart. I highly recommend his podcast, and there is a link to the EMCrit site in the “Useful EM links” below. But here is a link to the podcast on DSI: http://emcrit.org/dsi/
