The LITFL Review 125

The LITFL Review is your regular and reliable source for the highest highlights, sneakiest sneak peaks and loudest shout-outs from the webbed world of emergency medicine and critical care. Each week the LITFL team casts the spotlight on the best and brightest from the blogosphere, the podcast video/audiosphere and the rest of the Web 2.0 social media jungle to find the most fantastic EM/CC FOAM (Free Open Access Meducation) around.

Welcome to the 125th edition, brought to you by:

The Most Fair Dinkum Ripper Beaut of the Week

The Ripper spot this week is taken out by Mak Moayedi who really knows how to teach procedures. Teaching procedures in the cadavar lab is his education subspecialty and his passion. A few years back, listening to him describe the microskills approach to procedures fundamentally changed my practice. iTeachEM highlights Mak’s approach to teaching complex procedures more efficiently in Teaching Procedures-the Moayedi Way. This is a must listen for anyone who teaches others to put pointy things in patients. [CN]

    Thanks Chris, Kane, & everyone on the LITFL Review team for all your support. It’s an honor to be included in such an illustrious #FOAMcc list. Because of you all I can now tell my mom she can quit logging on to our site just to bump our hit count and make us all feel better :)
