The Best of #FOAMed Emergency Medicine

  • CanadiEM has an excellent systematic approach to interpreting the ECG in a pacemaker patientand identifying issues. [AS]
  • AEM Rounds is an exciting new FOAM site created by my colleagues in the Emergency & Trauma Centre at the Alfred Hospital in Melbourne. Trainees will like this brief, high impact vodcasts on Pelvic Trauma Minireview. There is also a Spine Trauma Review, detailing the Alfred approach to spine trauma clearance–a controversial area! [CN]
  • Our own Anand Swaminathan does a Critical Appraisal of the ENCHANTED trial evaluating low dose vs standard dose tPA in acute ischemic stroke–as does Adrian Wong, writing for the Bottom Line. Points to anyone who can explain what non-non-inferior means. [SR/SO]
  • Another great review from the guys at FOAMcast, this time on the management of seizures. [SL]
  • A thought provoking post on Overconfidence in the ED by Chris Gray at St Emlyns. [SL]
  • First 10 in EM has a great review of the early management of massive GI bleeding in the ED. [AS]
