A Potpourri of Papers to Improve your Practice

Hello, and happy new year!  I apologize that this latest post has taken so long to come out; between technical difficulties with new recording hardware and a family illness, it took longer than expected to get this one edited and published.  But I hope you enjoy this month’s video as much as I enjoyed producing it for you.

Rather than doing a deep dive into one topic, I thought it would be fun to change things up a bit and make this post a bit more of a mix of topics; hence the “potpourri” of papers.  There are some really important papers included in here, like the PATCH trial reviewing the evidence for platelet transfusion for intracranial hemorrhage, and the recent ALPS trial: a NEJM paper on antiarrhythmics in cardiac arrest.

If you’d like to go into greater depth on any of these topics, here are some great links to get you started:

As always, there is a CME quiz that you can get to by following the link above.  And please leave me feedback so I can continue to bring you the clinical knowledge you need!
