SMART EM: Thombolytics for Acute Stroke
This is a great topic for a debate between believers and non-believers! In this podcast (which is > 90 minutes) they try (and do a great job!) to discuss all the data! Look and listen at the data and make your own opinion!

Presentations & Videos

MedEDMasters: de Winter T-waves
De Winter you say??? Yes, he is Dutch! Just like Wellens and Eindhoven…We Dutchies know a lot about ECG’s!

(You probably know Wellens, but what about reverse Wellens’ sign: http://ekgumem.tumblr.com/post/50341728003 )

YouTube: Great video about IO access in the humerus

YouTube: Digital Endotracheal Intubation
Another reason to use gloves during intubation! Very cool and effective way to intubate, for example in trauma where you can’t move the neck!

ERCast.org: Chest tubes 101
Multiple videos about different techniques for placing chest tubes.

Dutch Delight (in Dutch)

Maas Casualty: FOAMed voor SEH keuze en oudste co’s
Maas Casualty, “Emergency Medicine in Rotterdam” geeft in deze post duidelijk weer hoe FOAMed ook gebruikt kan worden door co-assistenten. Hoe presenteer je een patiënt? Hoe benader je een acuut zieke patiënt op de SEH? Een ECG, hoe zat dat ook alweer? Allemaal vragen waar co-assistenten mee lopen….en FOAMed kan ze hierbij helpen, met dank aan Maas Casualty!
