Sometimes, especially during a long shift, we want to ask our patients why they thought they needed to come see us suddenly for a complaint that does not seem emergent. It can be challenging to remember that our patients seek our help for a variety of reasons.
Recently, our own Chip Lange was on The Skeptic's Guide to Emergency Medicine (The SGEM) for Podcast #249 covering ultrasound to confirm endotracheal tube placement. This had previously been discussed in detail on our own Podcast #118 along with the technique. However, after some discussions on social media it was decided to expand on this discussion further regarding the ways to confirm beyond ultrasound.
Thanks to the talents of Patrick Bafuma (who also has the EM in Focus blog), we have a new series on the podcast called Emergency Medicine Infectious Disease (EM ID). The first podcast is with Lauren Westafer who also is part of the FOAMcast podcast and a FemInEM Speaker. These two brilliant minds got together to record a podcast on spinal epidural abscess (SEA).
A while back, Podcast #70, we talked about how to perform a neurological exam. We also spoke on FOAMfrat. Since that time, at WEMSA we built on the subject and discussed the exam as well as its caveats. At that time, there was not a name. Now, we have the Brief Repeatable Assessment In Neurology (BRAIN) exam.
