The next issue of Trauma MedEd will be sent out to subscribers at the end of the week, and will cover a whole bunch of what I call Potpourri. These are some tidbits that I find fascinating and sometimes odd.
Topics will include:
Trauma and the gut microbiome
“Single look trauma laparotomy” (as opposed to damage control laparotomy) and postop complications
Pneumothorax: how big is too big?
The best prehospital stretchers for rapid extraction in MCIs
I’ve pushed the solid organ injury update issue out to next month. There’s a lot of stuff to cover, and quite a few changes have occurred over the years.
Welcome to the current newsletter. This issue is devoted to an uncommon yet somewhat troubling problem, fat embolism. Here are some of the things I cover:
Fat Embolism vs Fat Embolism Syndrome (FES)
Clinical Manifestations Of FES
Diagnosis Of Fat Embolism Syndrome
FES And Orthopedic Surgery
Prevention And Treatment Of Fat Embolism Syndrome
The March issue will be released to subscribers late this month and will cover a potpourri of interesting little tidbits. I’ll release it to everyone via this blog in April, so subscribe now if you want it sooner!
