ED Podcast Overview

9 Mar

During the 1st PSA-course organized by the NVSHA (Dutch Society for Emergency Medicine) I was very happy to hear that a lot of Dutch Emergency Physicians are following EMDutch.com! Especially “Back to the Future” seems to have made some impact, but what they missed was an overview of the most interesting ED podcast out there. So here is an small overview, but remember that I started using podcast 2 months ago, so there are probably a lot more….

EMCRIT http://emcrit.org/
My absolute #1! The FREE podcast by Scott Weingart, the “ED Cowboy” (which I say with all the respect!!!) and one off my big examples when it comes to ED podcast/websites and education! Most off his podcast are < 30 minutes, which makes it ideal to listen to in the car. The EMCrit Blog & Podcast will help make you a master resuscitationist & practice maximally aggressive care!

EM Basic http://embasic.org/
The FREE podcast by Steve Carroll. EM Basic is made for medical students and emergency medicine interns to review the basics of emergency medicine. Very interesting podcasts for everybody, from residents to physicians.

Emergency Board Review http://www.emergencyboardreview.com/about/
The Emergency Board Review podcast is a collaborative project by a bunch of EM docs that spend way too much time online. There are very few multimedia options for studying for the inservice/board exam that are 100% FREE. This project attempts to fill that void.
This project will try to be a resource guide for material, videos, and question banks available for studying. Its suppose to be a supplement to the review books and question banks that the physician/resident is already doing. Each EM section will have 1-3 episodes approximately 15-20 minutes long that only cover the need-to-know facts. Along with the videos, each section will contain a one-page cheatsheet of quick facts.
* Because these podcasts contain videos they are not ideal to listen to in the car!!!

SMART EM http://www.smartem.org/
This is a great FREE podcast in which David Newman (from theNNT) & Ashley Schreves discuss topics in great detail! Because they do it so thorough and in detail most of their podcasts are >1.30h, but then you know the ins and outs of the topic!

Free Emergency Medicine Talks http://freeemergencytalks.net/
Free Emergency Medicine Talks contains more than 2100 MP3s of lectures recorded at many national and international meetings. Since november 2012 they started to select 1 talk each week to bring as a FREE podcast. Great stuff by different speakers, with different ideas and topics!

ERCAST http://blog.ercast.org/
Each episode of ERCast covers a single issue and tries to tease out all the relevant elements that affect your practice without overstuffing your frontal cortex. It’s for physicians and anyone interested in a bare bones look at emergency care. Each time a different specialist will take you throught the topic! With most off the podcasts <30 min, it is ideal to listen to in your car or while training for the marathon. And….it’s FREE.

PHARM http://prehospitalmed.com/
This is the FREE podcast by Minh le Cong and its for folks working out there, in remote locations, outside a hospital, on aircraft, ambulances, in outposts who have to deal with emergencies and the unexpected. Good podcast, often with guests on the podcast…only drawback is that a lot of titles are unclear, so it’s difficult to search on a certain topic! If you love Airway/Anesthesia this (and EMCrit) blog and podcast is something for you!

Ultrasound Podcast http://www.ultrasoundpodcast.com/
This FREE podcast by Matt and Mike presents educational insight into different ultrasound techniques and possibilities. A great podcast for the Dutch ED physicians who are already doing ultrasound and for those (like myself) who want to start using it in their practice!

Annals of Emergency Medicine http://www.annemergmed.com/
In this FREE monthly podcast important original articles are summarized as well as notable editorials.

EMPEM http://empem.org/
EMPEM is a FREE podcast that focussed on Emergency Medicine and Paediatric Emergency Medicine webucation. Great podcast to improve your pediatrics (within 1 hour).

EMCast http://www.emedhome.com
In this monthly podcast dr. Amal Mattu hosts a 90-minute discussion about recent literature, cases and current hot topics! Before you can listen to this fantastic podcast you need to subscribe to emedhome.

EM:RAP http://www.emrap.org/
EM:RAP is a monthly audio series (podcast) with cutting edge, in-depth reviews of emergency medicine. EM:RAP presents the best speakers from across the USA from many of the most prestigious emergency medicine meetings, all in a tightly edited audio format. Emphasis is added through the lectures by the internationally acclaimed hosts Mel Herbert and Stuart Swadron.
This podcast is not Free…but I have been told it is one of the best out there, so maybe I also need to start paying for my podcasts…

The following podcasts are added by “Kinge”:

Pratical Evidence http://practicalevidence.org
Scott Weingart (from Emcrit) goes through new/important guidelines (these are off course US guidelines but nevertheless useful)

Keeping up with emergency medicine http://keepingup.vanderbiltem.com
review and commentary of recently published articles

The Skeptics guide to emergency medicine http://thesgem.com
critical review of EM subjects.

Emergency Medicine Journal podcast http://podcasts.bmj.com/emj/

    Hi Egon, Great to see such an overview, I reckon that will get a lot of colleagues started on the right track. To add some paediatrics to the mix: empem.org is a free podcast that deals with the most common encountered paeds ED problems and does some myth busting on the side; they recently showed that all the things we do for paediatric UTIs might not be that evidence based. Might be worth adding to the list.
