Kevin Burns is back from our last podcast for another discussion, this time specifically on Point of Care Ultrasound (POCUS) and prehospital care. He is assisting with some new research and we review how POCUS could be beneficial in the EMS.
Kevin Burns is one of those PAs who is on the cutting edge of prehospital care. He is the co-director of the Yale New Haven Hospital (YNHH) Emergency Medicine PA Residency program. One of his favorite aspects of emergency medicine is prehospital care and we wanted to talk to him about some of the plans for the future of PAs in emergency medicine.
Clay Smith ofEM Topics joins us today for a first-ever crossover post. His amazingly well-done blog with daily posts on clinically important papers is a must to subscribe. In today's post, we cover a review he is also publishing today regarding ramping in intubations. In this RCT, there is no benefit in the primary outcome (lowest oxygen saturation) when comparing ramping versus sniffing position. However, there is a lot more to the paper as discussed in this blog and podcast.
Brian Lin is back for the second part of our conversation with him from the 2017 SEMPA 360 conference, but this time we are talking about two subjects with a lot of dogma: the Golden Period for wound closure and dog bite closure. This brief review is designed to remind you of some of the key components in order to better care for your patients.
