Continuing my resolution to listen to 50 EM podcasts in 2014.
Free Emergency Medicine Talks is usually a great resource for EM doctors. Joe Lex puts up EM talks and presentations from around the world that would otherwise be lost as soon as they’re given. Last week I listened to Ricardo Hamilton: Life-saving Procedures in Emergency Medicine. To be honest, it wasn’t that great. 85% of the talk was about chest drains and thoracotomies, which is all well and good, but nothing revelatory really. Sound quality wasn’t good and there was some visual content in the lecture which obviously didn’t translate to the audio podcast. Ah well, you can’t win ’em all. Free Emergency Medicine Talks is always worth checking out, but I’d give this one a miss.
Today I listened to another of Rob Orman’s ERCASTs , this time it was Pulmonary Nodule: The incidentaloma. Timely for me as I recently had a pulmonary finding to deal with. I’ve only recently started on ERCAST, it’s all killer, no filler. I liked the admission up front “What do lung nodules have to do with emergency medicine?” but the reality is it’s not all trauma calls and cardiac arrests – there’s all the little details we need to keep an eye on too. Recommended.
