St.Emlyn's - Emergency Medicine #FOAMed

No one likes getting a pulmonary embolism. Or a deep vein thrombosis. And because about 60% of all blood clots are associated with hospitalisation for acute illness​1​, we take the idea of prophylaxis very seriously. Emerging data suggests that this seriousness has reaped reward in the UK​2​. We give information about mobilisation and hydration. We ...

St.Emlyn's - Emergency Medicine #FOAMed

I started thinking and writing this blog about 2 years ago, but I’d not really been happy with understanding how I feel about it. More recently I’ve been asked to prepare a talk for the Don’t Forget the Bubbles conference in June 2019 on the way that we deal with procedures in the ED. It ...

Before you start reading this blog summary, I have a small confession to make: I do not think I have ever treated an adult patient with confirmed Listeria infection. Maybe this is because of the nature of my work (I work as an adult and children’s emergency doc in a busy city centre ED so ...

I was really privileged to give a talk on upper GI/gastrointestinal emergencies last year at St Emlyn’s LIVE. You can read more on the overwhelming impostor syndrome I felt standing there not only with, but also in front of and talking to, such a wealth of experience in emergency medicine and critical care, echoed in ...

A little while ago I reported from the American Association for the Surgery of Trauma’s meeting – specifically covering the management of major – or mass casualty – incidents (MCI). Many similar themes stood out despite these occurring in various locations – in high-income, developed countries. Low- and middle-income countries (LMIC) are unfortunately no strangers ...

For as long as I can remember I’ve been told that it is possible to analyse marrow from an intra-osseous (IO) needle. It’s been taught on lots of APLS courses I’ve attended (Ed – in other words you’ve taught it!), but can it really work? There are many recommendations suggesting good correlation, but those who ...

A few weeks ago we reviewed a paper on the management of traumatic cardiac arrest. That paper specifically looked at the role of closed chest compressions in traumatic cardiac arrest (TCA). I recently managed to catch up with the lead author, an old friend of mine and an expert in the management of this complex ...
