Trauma MedEd Newsletter: The Best Of EAST!

Last year, a lot of the papers presented at EAST were a bit ho-hum. But I’ve been reviewing the abstracts for the upcoming January 2016 meeting, and there’s a lot of good stuff! Although you do need to take this with a grain of salt, because sometimes the paper does not live up to the hype of the abstract. But many of the abstracts look so good, that I’m going to dedicate both December and January Trauma MedEd newsletters to reviewing them.

There are lots of intriguing ideas coming! Here are a few that I will be writing about:

  • Suction evacuation of hemothorax
  • (F)utility of CPR in hemorrhagic shock
  • (F)utility of blood administration in the helicopter
  • EMS scene time and mortality
  • Does Mucomyst (acetylcysteine) predispose to pneumonia?
  • Distracted driving prevention
  • How long is DVT a potential risk in TBI?
  • Plus I’ll pick apart a number of really crappy abstracts
  • And more…!

Anyone on the subscriber list as of midnight (CST) Sunday night will receive it later that night Everybody else will have to wait for me to release it here on the blog late next week. So sign up for early delivery now by clicking here!
