The Most Fair Dinkum Ripper Beauts of the Week

Nick Cummins Fair Dinkum Ripper Beauts of the Week

The Australia and New Zealand Intensive Care Society (ANZICS) have a superb YouTube page with lots of great lectures from their 2014 ASM being uploaded. Why not get started with the oration lecture from the legendary Simon Finfer? [SO]

The Best of #FOAMed Emergency Medicine

  • New must=check-out FOAM site: Sketchy EBM from Anthony Crocco. Showcases short (5 min) videos discussing different aspects of EBM and on how to understand the literature. [AS]
  • More great content from CORE EM on aortic dissection and syncope, with some great dogma addressed. [SL]
  • Ever wish you could cardiovert a patient in SVT with a more effective Valsalva manoeuvre? At St Emlyus, Rick Body runs through a recent paper in the Lancet which might help. [SL]
  • The latest FOAMcast is all about appendicitis. [MG]

The Best of #FOAMcc Critical Care

  • In a traumatic arrest, can we use the absence of cardiac motion and pericardial effusion to determine whether an ED thoracotomy should be performed? Read the Pro from Rob Orman and EMRAP, and the rebuttal from Simon Laing and HEMTEMCast
  • Josh Farkas from Pulmcrit discusses the use of high flow nasal cannulae in weaning from hypoxic respiratory failure. An interesting area without much data at present. Worth trying in your unit, perhaps? [SO]

The Best of #FOAMus Ultrasound

The Best of #FOAMped Pediatrics

The Best of #FOAMim Internal Medicine

The Best of #MedEd FOAM and #FOAMsim

  • Ed Snelson guest posts on Rolobotrambles encourages trainers and learners to embrace the idea that using simulated failures can be a more valuable learning experience than a success. [CC]
