I’m traveling to Philadelphia this week to celebrate the 25th anniversary of the trauma program at the University of Pennsylvania. I am one of the three founding surgeons and have been asked to speak at the academic forum portion of the program. I’ll be talking about three papers that should have changed our practice.
For the remainder of the week I’ll be writing about those three papers. They involve the use of an agent that helps control bleeding, radiation exposure in trauma imaging, and the use of technology developed outside the field of medicine to treat trauma patients.
Tune in as I work my way through those important studies. And on Friday, I’ll be tweeting any important or interesting info presented at the academic forum.
