The LITFL Review 106

Welcome to the 106th edition, brought to you by Kane Guthrie and Tessa Davis.

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.

The Most Fair Dinkum Ripper Beaut of the Week

Hyperglycaemia isn’t the sexiest FOAMed topic going around  — however every shift we work, we are confronted with a diabetic patient or even just a high blood glucose level, do we always know the right way to manage them? Have no fear Robbo Orman from ER CAST has a jammed-pack ‘pearls and pitfalls’ podcast on managing the hyperglycaemic patient! This podcast is is a mine of educational gold – you will learn something new from it.

The Best of #FOAMed Emergency Medicine

  • Steve at EM Basic walks us through a recent troublesome/challenging case he had in the Anatomy of a Resuscitation — this is brilliant work by Steve highlighting some really important pearls and pitfalls on getting the best outcomes from yourself, your team, and most of all for your patient in the resus room. 
  • When misdiagnosis of atrial fibrillation hurts! Amal at EKG Videos lets us know – What’s the most over-diagnosed tachydysrhythmia? Know your “money lead” and you won’t make that mistake!


The Best of #FOAMcc Critical Care

The Best of #FOAMPed Paediatrics

In the week that the #FOAMped hashtag was registered with Symplur, here are Tessa Davis’ (@tessardavis) top paediatric gems of this week.

  • Casey Parker (@broomedocs) walks us through an encounter with a teenager and the police in the middle of the night in a trial of a new ‘your next line…’ format. Teenager issues are a difficult management topics for #foamped and usually avoided, so it’s good to see this being dealt with head-on.
  • @ZDoggMD’s fabulous vaccination video is very apt in view of his (and my) outrage at this anti-vax news report. If you don’t laugh I’ll eat my hat.
  • Brad Sobolewski (@pemtweets) released a great podcast summarising the issues around ketamine for procedural sedation in kids. Another good post about this can be seen here

 News from the Fastlane

  • LITFL’s sister site recently featured a one-stop shop for the SMACC ‘Future of Education‘ plenary — all the talks from SMACC are being #FOAMed via the SMACC Podcast — over 30,000 downloads so far!
  • Keep an eye on LITFL’s Critical Care Compendium — there are always additions being added behind the scenes… over 1,500 (!) entries so far. This is a great resource for those studying for critical care fellowship exams and anyone else who doesn’t want to stop learning! (NB. It’s not all glamour and glory — there are even sections on truly life-saving measures like Hand Hygiene)
  • Don’t forget to check out Yosef Leibman’s July edition of Emergency Medicine Update – its packed full of awesomeness and the August edition will be up on LITFL soon.
