Yes, we're still in the summer of the resuscitationist, and yes, IV placement is a pretty basic skill.  We'll be bringing you one last fluid responsiveness podcast extremely soon (hint - it's about carotid flow).  But you can't resuscitate your patient without access.  And it's been one year since our free ultrasound guided IV course [...]

They think we've been a bit narrow in our discussion of the IVC for fluid responsiveness.  They think we could get a little more sophisticated with our sound waves than looking at the IVC in isolation......and we think they're right. Fair warning:  The first several minutes of this talk are physiology heavy, but it's great [...]

Wow, that’s a packed headline.  Let’s break it down: 1.     The one, the only, Scott Weingart from emcrit.org tells us why IVC ultrasound is useful and why you should never trust Mike Stone (hint….it has to do with kittens). 2.     We mentioned a couple of days ago that we were creating a #FOAMED [...]

We're creating a #FOAMED Innovation Scholarship to facilitate and help you out if you're idea rich, but $$ strapped.  This is really designed for all the brilliant and creative med students and resource limited providers out there.  We know that 99% of the time a great #FOAMED project really just requires sweat equity and the [...]

 If you were at the castle last year for Castlefest you may or may not have recovered from this breathtaking debate. First off, who knew Weingart was a biter?!?!  I certainly never would have guessed Mike Stone was that accurate with throwing stars! Anyway, it was epic.  The most impressive thing, though, was the way [...]

Weingart Most Interesting

We only made it through the H in HIMAP, but that was by design.  You get SOOO much information from the heart part of the RUSH that is deserves its own podcast. The rest of the great RUSH talk that Dr. Weingart gave at Castlefest 2013 is here. If you want to come discuss and [...]

RUSH part 2 with Weingart will be released next week and there's more fluid responsiveness and other critical care ultrasound coming up.  This is just a quick break.  These podcasts have been so INTENSE that we know you need a break.  Consider this a "palette cleanser".  This will allow you to fully appreciate all the [...]

Castlefest 2014 and RUSH Podcast with Weingart.  Get your info and learning here! Well, you couldn't very well have a summer of the resuscitationist without including the master resuscitationist who actually coined the term resuscitationist (YES, we did it.....set the record for the most times using the word resuscitationist in a single sentence).  So here [...]

Everyone knows what the RUSH protocol is. What, you just emerged from your Soviet-era bunker and don't know?  Well, that's fine.  We'll be having Scott Weingart himself teaching it to you on the podcast in a couple weeks. For everyone else, though, like I said, you know the RUSH protocol.  It's an incredible tool for [...]

Yes, you probably guessed it from the opening sentence, this talk is by Cliff Reid……and off the charts. EFAST is probably a pretty standard scan that most of you listening to this already perform.  However, even if you’ve heard a thousand EFAST talks it’s worth listening to this one by Cliff Reid for comments like [...]
