Quick And Dirty Shoulder Exam

This is a short, 6 minute video that gives details on how to do a really good, quick exam to detect shoulder pathology. Jessie Nelson MD (Emergency Medicine) and Julie Switzer MD (Othorpedic Surgery) demonstrate. 

I have to put it a disclaimer for the disclaimer at the beginning of this video. It’s ridiculous, but my institution requires it. Sigh!

Trauma Education: The Next Generation Coming Soon!

TE:TNG, version 2.0 is coming next month! Our fast-paced 4 hour program will be available live (but you have to come see me in St. Paul MN), or via LiveStream on Thursday, September 4.

Our guest speaker is Dr. Cliff Reid of the resus.me blog, live from Australia (via Skype), talking about “When ‘scoop and run’ is not an option: emergency medicine and trauma surgery outside the hospital.”

We also have a number of other live presenters, delivering 20 minute fact-packed talks on trauma topics applicable to all trauma professionals. Topics include:

  • Anticoagulation reversal
  • Complex dental trauma
  • Radiation exposure
  • Prehospital spine immobilization

Peppered among all the live presenters will be curbside consults, where we ask the specialists what you also wished you had asked. We’ll also show a variety of focused, 5 minute how-to videos on:

  • Lateral canthotomy
  • New drugs
  • Trauma team activation: the patient perspective
  • Eye emergencies

For more information, or to make arrangements to join us live or electronically, please visit our website at www.tetng.org

I’m looking forward to “seeing” you there!
