Building off of our last post withHarrison Reed talking about communication, we are moving to a very similar and related topic this time talking about cognitive stop points with paramedic Tyler Christifulli. He also has his own blog and podcast called FOAMfrat and one we have actually featured on our website. Our next post will also have Tyler back discussing acronyms and how they tie in with these cognitive stop points so make sure to check that, as well.
Critical care PA Harrison Reed joins us to discuss communication in critical care resuscitation by breaking it down into phases along with talking about the pearls and pitfalls when it comes to these challenging situations.
Fever can be scary. It brings in many parents and even adults no matter the time of day. However, there is a lot of misinformation regarding fevers which brings about this important discussion. Using available evidence, we are going to talk about fevers and some of the main myths versus the actual evidence. As always, with topics like these, it is worth remembering that this does not replace clinical judgment and is meant to be informational. Any time there is concern, it should be appropriately evaluated and managed.
Every time we transfer the care of a patient, we are performing in many ways a high risk maneuver. It is so second nature to many that we do not think about the risks. However, according to the Joint Commission up to 80% of serious preventable medical errors are attributed to poorly communicated handoffs. It begs the question, how do we better transition the care of patients within the emergency department (ED).
