Those awesome Swedes. Not only do they host an excellent emergency ultrasound conference (SonoSweden), they livestream it free, and then save all the archives for all to see. That’s hours and hours of FREE ultrasound tutorial videos featuring Matt Dawson, Mike Mullin, Vicki Noble, and others. Did I mention everyone’s in a kimono? [SO]

  • The PROPPR study was release this week investigating the use of 1:1:1 resuscitation in major trauma versus 1:1:2 (plasma/platelets/RBCs). HIPPO EM has a nice review of the landmark study and a more in depth review from REBEL EM.. [AS]
  • Justin Mandeville of ICMWK has released his list of 10ish favourite studies of 2014. It’s a great list (even though he clearly can’t count). [SO]
  • If you haven’t subscribed to Josh Farkas’s blog, Pulmcrit, please do. He keeps putting out brilliant posts. His latest discusses a triple-barrel shotgun approach to undifferentiated cardiorespiratory failure. [SO]
  • The Bottom Line this week features the RESTORE study looking at  protocol sedation in mechanically ventilated paediatric patients with acute respiratory failure. A really interesting study excellently summarized. [SO]
  • Matthew Mac Partlin from the Intensive Care Network presents a podcast with Rob Macsweeney of Critical Care Reviewed, discussing his recently completed CCR Meeting 2015. It’s definitely worth a listen. [SO]
  • Portsmouth ICU in the UK has produced a handy list of patient safety notices, and shared them with all online. Check them out here. [SO]
  • Another reminder of the importance of compassion and humanity from the Humanizing Intensive Care Project: “we need to hear and listen” [SO]
