Iain and Simon chat about the current Corona pandemic and the blog in Feb 2020.
Iain remains positive, but Simon thinks the glass is half full. Time will tell who is right (though in truth there is a lot of common ground).
Back in late 2018 we gathered in Manchester for the inaugural #stemlynsLIVE conference. Our friend Dr George Wills gave a great talk on Aortic Emergencies.
All emergency physicians know that it's all to easy to miss an aortic catastrophe. Listen to George's wisdom on common pitfalls and top tips to make you a better emergency clinician.
Also check out these excellent #FOAMed resources.
This podcast was recorded at the Intensive Care Society State of the Art meeting in London 2018. Simon Carley interviews Prof Peter Brindley on the interface of technology, humans and humanity in critical care. The audio was recorded live and at the venue so there is a fair bit of background noise, but we hope that this does not distract from a wide ranging and fascinating podcast.
Simon and Iain talk through what the team has been up to in April. All the blogs should be on the website and of course you can subscribe to the podcast via iTunes or via PodBean.

Gosh, when you write it down and think about all the work the rest of the team puts in to teach and learn it makes me kind of proud. Don't forget to join us later this year for the live version at #stemlyneLIVE in Manchester.
It's that time of year again, where we get new colleagues in the Emergency Department (and across lots of other areas of the hospital too).
These are some of the top tips for new starters (and life in the ED in general) gathered from the senior medical and nursing team at Virchester (South).

Oh. And one tip we left out - always wear sunscreen.
With thanks (and apologies) to Baz Luhrmann.
