Need a quick refresher course on how to do an ultrasound-guided ear block or ankle arthrocentesis? I recently found out about Drs. Andrew Herring and Arun Nagdev’s Highland Emergency Ultrasound website and thought it was a great resource to share with others in the EM world. The website has easy-to-follow pictorial instructions of anatomic landmarks, probe placement, and ultrasound images of the most common blocks and other procedures.
With the overwhelming poll response on helping Annals of Emergency Medicine choose their two open-access articles for April 2014, this will now be an ongoing monthly event! Take a look at the article abstracts accepted for publication in May’s issue. Vote on your top two choices over the next 2 days, and they’ll be made open after the May issue of Annals of Emergency Medicine goes online.
For many years, Annals of Emergency Medicine has selected two articles every month to make open access to non-subscribers, based on their perceived interest and/or importance. Problem is, we make those choices blind to what our readers really want. You can help us improve this selection if you would review the list of articles that will be in the April 2014 issue, and vote for any articles you’d like to see free full-text. Please vote on your top two choices over the next 2 days and we’ll make them full text open access shortly thereafter. The in-press titles and abstracts are listed below. Thank you for your support!
This past week, we’ve hosted a discussion for our book club on “Five Days at Memorial”. First off, thank-you to everyone who has contributed! But now we have a special surprise.
Two months ago we had Shawn Achor tweeting with us… and now we have a Google Hangout On Air with Sheri Fink MD PhD (@SheriFink), the author of the ALiEM Book Club selection this month! Not only is Sheri an award winning journalist, who has written an amazing book – she’s also a really nice lady who was happy to chat with us for 40 minutes about her latest work (technical glitches and all)!
Residency provides clinical training to new physicians. Many programs have started offering online educational content to their residents. These are great resources to learn from some of the leading educators in EM from the comfort of your home. Below is a list of some of my favorites.
