Next Trauma MedEd Newsletter Released Soon!

I’m going to send out the next edition of the Trauma MedEd newsletter this coming weekend. I’m writing about a number of miscellaneous topics (Potpourri) that have intrigued me. And hopefully they will intrigue you as well.

Here are some of the topics:

  • Aspirin for DVT prophylaxis. A number of my orthopedic colleagues swear that this works, but I’ve been skeptical. What does the literature really say?
  • Outcomes of thoracic endovascular aortic repair (TEVAR). This has become the treatment of choice in blunt traumatic aortic injury. How do these patients really fare over time?
  • Does MRI of the cervical spine assist in clearance? A look at the ReCONECT study.
  • And a few other tidbits…

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 Next Trauma MedEd Newsletter: All Things Prevention

All trauma centers in the US, and many in other parts of the world, are required to have injury prevention programs. Level I centers in the States are also required to have a named Injury Prevention Coordinator with a job description and salary support.

In this newsletter, I’m going to dig into the specifics of injury prevention. Some of the topics I will cover include:

  • Explaining the American College of Surgeons injury prevention requirements
  • A list of the most common types of injury prevention programs around the US
  • Efficacy of specific prevention programs (violence prevention, elderly falls)
  • Making your injury prevention coordinator great
  • Tips on designing an excellent trauma prevention program
  • And more!

This issue will be available sometime in mid-December. As usual, it will be emailed to all subscribers first. About two weeks later, I’ll make it available to all here on the blog.

  • Tips and tricks
  • Predicting outcome
  • Monitoring
  • Safe imaging
  • Perimortem C-section
  • And more!
