The LITFL Review 127

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 127th edition, brought to you by:

The Most Fair Dinkum Ripper Beaut of the Week

What happens when something we ‘know’ turns out to be wrong? Lauren Westafer of ‘the short coat’ discusses The (Un)Learning process. As FOAM and other innovations begin to do a better and better job of knowledge translation I think unlearning is going to be something that practitioners increasingly grapple with. [BT, CN]

#FOAMTox Toxicology

  • The Poison Review continues its deluge of all things good and #FOAMTox, and it’s not #FOAMTox without talking about intralipid. Leon Gussow discusses a case series (n=2) where intralipid was associated with asystole- causation or coincidence? What do you think? [JAR]
