I recently discovered a little gem of a website, which houses video and podcast recordings of joint conferences by the Los Angeles EM residency programs since 2007.

http://AllLAconference.com/

The conferences feature some real star lecturers on the EM circuit including Dr. Diane Birmbaumer (Harbor-UCLA), Dr. Stu Swadron (USC), and Dr. Jerry Hoffman (Olive View-UCLA), amongst others. They cover quite a few pediatric subjects. Topics include:

2009

  • CNS Infections
  • Pediatric Trauma Panel
  • Neonatal Emergencies
  • Sickle Cell Disease in Children
  • Swine Flu Update
  • Pediatric Panel on Seizures, C-Spine Injuries, ALTE
  • Head Trauma Therapy
  • Revising the NINDS Trial
  • Pediatric C-Spine Injuries
  • Trauma Panel

2008

  • Pediatric Panel
  • Lethargic Child
  • Overcrowding in the Emergency Department
  • Bedside Teaching
  • CT in ACS
  • Senior Faculty Panel
  • Cyanosis Cases
  • MRSA – Are We All Gonna Die?

2007

  • Brain Natriuretic Peptide
  • Congenital Heart Defects
  • A Case of Meningitis
  • Faculty Panel Discussion
  • Hypothermia in Cardiac Arrest
  • Hyperkalemia


The website also allows you to download the videos in Quicktime format and in audio podcast format. The conference lectures seem to be uploading about three times yearly. I applaud the LA group in letting others share in their collaborative, joint-conference efforts.
