The September Trauma MedEd Newsletter Is Coming Soon: Trauma in the Hybrid Room

A growing number of hospitals have a “hybrid OR.” My next newsletter will answer all your questions about what it is, and what you can do in it. It can be a handy dandy tool for trauma cases, but there are a number of things you need to think about before you use it for the first time.

In this issue I’ll cover:

  • What exactly is a hybrid OR?
  • What types of trauma cases can it be used for?
  • What are the limitations?
  • What do I need to think about before I use it for trauma?
  • And more!

As always, this issue will go to all of my subscribers first. If you are not yet one of them, click this link to sign up and/or download back issues.

Unfortunately, non-subscribers will have to wait until I release the issue on this blog, about 10 days later. So sign up now!

The August 2017 Trauma MedEd Newsletter Is Here!

Welcome to the current newsletter. In this one, I’ll be presenting and discussing some of the “Laws of Trauma” that I’ve observed over the years. I think you’ll find them interesting and amusing, and hopefully valuable. As a bonus, I’ll also include a copy of Norm McSwain’s Rules of Patient Care. Enjoy!
