Michelle Johnston manages to capture, in her superbly eloquent style, the heartbreak of the Wrong type of Swiss Cheese. Errors must be prevented, yes. But not at the cost of our humanity. [SO]

The Best of #FOAMed Emergency Medicine

The Best of #FOAMcc Critical Care

The Best of #FOAMus Ultrasound

  • Mike Stone discusses the tibial nerve block for regional anesthesia to the sole of the foot. Great technique to repair lacerations and remove foreign bodies. [AS]
  • Echo.guru has some great advice on the uncommonly used right parasternal window for echocardiography. [SO]

The Best of #FOAMped Pediatrics

The Best of #FOAMim Internal Medicine

  • Steeping up for those who can’t is a video lecture summarizing published research, and presenting University of Louisville’s own findings, on Disability in the Clinic. The audio’s second half is much improved, and reviews what is technically needed according to the ADA to improve accessibility for all patients. A important, consciousness-raising video for physicians of all specialties, indeed for everyone. How might your ER, clinic, hospital or office perform on the survey? [ML]
