Finally! The Next MedEd Newsletter Is Coming! Trauma in the Hybrid Room

Well readers, I’ve been promising this for many months. And I’ve finally finished it! The next Trauma MedEd newsletter is ready!

A growing number of hospitals have a “hybrid OR.” This 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?
  • Why use one for trauma?
  • How useful is it, really?
  • What types of trauma cases can it be used for?
  • What do I need to think about before I use it for trauma?

As always, this issue will go to all of my subscribers first, this Saturday. If you are not yet one of them, click this link to sign up now 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!
