US-guided CPR Part 2. TEE & US=New pulse check. Also, Resus Leadership Academy with @emcrit & @CriticalCareNow

Ok, now let’s finish it off.  We’re about to get a little more controversial that the last post.  But seriously, what do you trust more, your finger or the echo probe in an arrest.  It’s time we just admit how badly we suck at palpation for pulse and use a better tool if we have it.  Of course, as soon as your finger gets better than all the evidence would suggest it is, then fine, trust it. Until then, watch this.
If you really want to get nuts and deliver seriously next level care, at least consider the TEE stuff we’re gonna throw at you in the last part of this podcast.
Also, at the very beginning we’re gonna tell you about a new project we’ve created with Scott Weingart and Haney Mallemat.  If you’re interested, sign up at  It’s gonna be incredible.
