I was recently at the Trauma Care UK conference in Telford. As ever, it’s a great bunch of people working hard to improve trauma management in the UK. My talk this year was on the top 10 trauma papers published in the last 12 months. It’s a nice talk to give, largely because it involves […]

JC: K is Good For You – Subdissociative Ketamine vs Morphine in the ED http://stemlynsblog.org/jc-ketamine/ http://stemlynsblog.org/jc-ketamine/#comments Sat, 18 Apr 2015 09:56:47 +0000 http://stemlynsblog.org/?p=9784 St Emlyns - Meducation in Virchester #FOAMed

It’s no secret that I’m a fan of ketamine and its clinical applications. So when I spotted this paper in my daily PubMed notification email (see here for tips from the St Emlyn’s team on how to set these up) I was immediately interested. Even before I was an EM trainee I worked in an […]

The Art of War http://stemlynsblog.org/the-art-of-war/ http://stemlynsblog.org/the-art-of-war/#comments Sat, 11 Apr 2015 20:47:40 +0000 http://stemlynsblog.org/?p=9669 St Emlyns - Meducation in Virchester #FOAMed

Emergency medicine in the UK is frequently cited by the British media as being like a warzone, and with that in mind I delved back into one my favourite books. It certainly isn’t a modern book and I very much doubt it was written with EM in mind, but there are lessons we can learn […]

Sepsis 2015: EGDT without the “G”? http://stemlynsblog.org/surviving-sepsis-update/ http://stemlynsblog.org/surviving-sepsis-update/#respond Wed, 08 Apr 2015 07:00:19 +0000 http://stemlynsblog.org/?p=9748 St Emlyns - Meducation in Virchester #FOAMed

  Sepsis has been a big topic of research over the years (understatement), and the last 18 months have seen the publication of data that has made us, once again, rethink how we approach these critically ill patients.  If you are reading this blog then it is highly likely that you are aware of the […]

Good times part 1: DIDO-30 for STEMI http://stemlynsblog.org/good-times-1-dido-30-for-stemi/ http://stemlynsblog.org/good-times-1-dido-30-for-stemi/#comments Fri, 03 Apr 2015 16:43:07 +0000 http://stemlynsblog.org/?p=9269 St Emlyns - Meducation in Virchester #FOAMed

STEMI is one of the true medical emergencies.  We all know that the sooner our patient gets revascularisation, the better they do.  We’ve known this for years.  In a very nice meta-analysis, Eric Boersma showed how the survival benefit from thrombolysis decayed exponentially with time from symptom onset.  That relationship’s so marked that if we […]

Guess or Gestalt in Major Trauma at St.Emlyn’s http://stemlynsblog.org/guess-or-gestalt-in-major-trauma-at-st-emlyns/ http://stemlynsblog.org/guess-or-gestalt-in-major-trauma-at-st-emlyns/#comments Mon, 30 Mar 2015 09:00:26 +0000 http://stemlynsblog.org/?p=9716 St Emlyns - Meducation in Virchester #FOAMed

I was recently fortunate enough to speak at the the Emergency Medicine Educators Conference in Coventry on a subject that continues to interest me, that of gestalt, judgement and clinical decision making. As I get older I increasingly realise that simply acquiring more knowledge and skills is not enough. What’s really important is how we […]

  In March 2015 I invited myself to the Swedish Emergency Medicine conference SWEETs in Stockholm. It was a huge privilege to learn about EM in Sweden and to work alongside some of my favourite people. I had an absolutely amazing and exhausting time – as well as presenting on presentation skills for the Teaching […]

Trials and Tribulations: Ross Fisher on Paediatric Trauma at the London Trauma Conference http://stemlynsblog.org/trials-and-tribulations-paediatric-trauma/ http://stemlynsblog.org/trials-and-tribulations-paediatric-trauma/#comments Mon, 23 Mar 2015 07:18:35 +0000 http://stemlynsblog.org/?p=9697 St Emlyns - Meducation in Virchester #FOAMed

  You’ve probably worked out by now that the London Trauma conference was full of awesomeness and controversy. Obviously I’m biased, but I found the paediatric stream particularly engaging and I was lucky enough to be able to grab some post-talk discussion time with Ross Fisher, friend of St Emlyns and Consultant Paediatric Surgeon at […]
