The Best of #FOAMed Emergency Medicine

  • FOAMCast delves into the disutility of the urine drug screen as well as exploring management of cocaine intoxication. [AS]
  • Angioedema is a pretty poorly understood topic; this podcast from ERCAST gives a good overview via a great discussion from Rob with Gentry Wilkerson. [SL]
  • Excellent pearl from EM Updates on the blood control valve in IV catheters and how to get around it when needle decompressing a chest (though, I agree, finger thoracostomy simply easier and more effective). [AS]
  • Here’s a great post by Richard Bukata on NG tubes. Do we really need to do so many of them, and are there things to do to make them more comfortable for patients? [SO]

The Best of #FOAMcc Critical Care

The Best of #FOAMres Resuscitation
