Last year we were honoured to bring Kat Evans to Manchester to talk at the #stemlynsLIVE conference. We've covered emergency medicine in South Africa before on the blog, but there is no substitute to hearing about it from someone who actually works there.
Five strategies to improve your resuscitations.
1. Zero point survey
2. Peer review
3. 10 in 10
4. Hot debriefs
5. Fly the patient
You can read about these strategies, watch the video and learn about the background on the St Emlyn's blog here https://www.stemlynsblog.org/stemlynslive-five-free-strategies-to-improve-your-resuscitation-practice-st-emlyns/
In this podcast Simon talks to Dan Harvey (ITU) and Mark Wilson (Neurosurgeon) on the management of complex patients with a perceived devastating brain injury.
This podcast is linked to the blog on the St.Emlyn's website.
Iain and Simon chat through our top ten trauma papers for 2016. Lots here for anyone who is interested in trauma including whole body CT, traumatic cardiac arrest, neurosurgery in severe head injury and much more. As ever we'd suggest you read the original papers, references for which along with a blogpost can all be found here http://stemlynsblog.org/top-10-trauma-papers-2016-st-emlyns/
Robert Lloyd aka @ponderingEM from the Pondering EM blog joins Simon to talk about his experiences in a South African ED. This is an amazing tribute to the work our South African colleagues and how an Englishman found a way to adapt to the challenges (and there are many) of SA EM practice.
Ross Fisher, consultant paediatric surgeon and lead for TARNlet joins Simon Carley at the London Trauma Conference to discuss the challenges in managing paediatric trauma in the UK.
Iain Beardsell joins Tim Coats, chair of the UK Trauma Audit Network, to discuss the role of trauma units within major trauma networks.
Simon and Ross Fisher from Sheffield discuss the emerging role of paediatric surgeons in trauma. This podcast was recorded at the London Trauma Conference (so sorry for a bit of background noise at times).
Greetings from the London Trauma Conference!
As has become our pre-Christmas custom, Iain and I have been hanging out at the fabulous London Trauma Conference, hearing about advances and controversies in trauma care and tracking down some of the speakers to find out exactly what they really think (and recording it, for podcasts we'll release in due course).
The conference extends over four days, incorporating the Air Ambulance and Prehospital Day and the Cardiac Arrest Symposium; unfortunately we can't stick around for those but our colleagues over at the RCEM FOAM network will be podcasting from those days too, so keep an eye on their site and podcast feed too.
We are truly honored to listen and learn from Dr Youri Yordanov from Paris. Youri was the senior emergency physician on duty on the 13/11/15 during the brutal and terrifying terrorist attacks in Paris. Here he joins St.Emlyn's to discuss how they managed a mass casualty incident with lessons for us all.
There is no doubt that without the skills, preparation and response of Youri, his ED team, the wider hospital and the emergency service in general the death rate would have been much worse.
Thanks Youri for your wisdom and reflections.
A first podcast with Simon Laing from the RCEMFOAMed team. We look back at influential trauma related papers from 2014-2015.
A short podcast updating the UK Advanced Paediatric Life Support (APLS) course guidelines for the management of trauma in children.
Don't forget to read the blog post here. APLS Updates: New kids on the block,
Karim Brohi joins the St.Emlyn's team at the London Trauma Conference to talk on vascular injury and arterial dissection. A whole range of diagnoses that you should not miss, but which is easy to miss.
First of our podcasts from the London Trauma Conference.
A fantastic episode with Iain talking to Gareth Davies (from London HEMS) talking about Impact Brain Apnoea.
Whilst I remain in Virchester healing the sick and injured, Nat and Iain are sharing the #FOAMed love at the London Trauma Conference. This is the first round up from day 1 with many highlights and a few tasters for some more podcasts to come.
Next week Iain and Nat will be in London for the best trauma conference in the world. Join them in person, online, on the podcast and on twitter.
Check out the program here, it's amazing.
