The Most Fair Dinkum Ripper Beauts of the Week

Incredible talk on vulnerability from SMACC Chicago given by Tim Leeuwenburg. This is a must watch for any physician. [AS]
Did you miss SMACC Chicago? Great podcasts released by St. Emlyn’s and FOAMCast highlighting pearls from the workshops and lectures.[AS]
Anyone lucky enough to have met John Hinds or hear him speak will have been inspired to provide exceptional Prehospital/EM/ITU care. Plus, he was a thoroughly nice man. Tragically he died this week. John was driven to establish a Northern Ireland HEMS service; In memory of John please sign this petition on the PHARM to help drive John’s goal forward. [SL]
In memory of John Hinds, this is a great time to revisit some of his best talks: Cases from the Races and the great Cricoid debate (both from SMACC Gold), and his presence on the RAGE podcast. [SO]
