Have you noticed that on “Who Wants To Be A Millionaire”, asking the audience as a lifeline almost always results in the right answer (over 90% of the time)?
Dr. David Thorisson (Lund University, Scandinavia) recently approached me with a novel idea of doing the same for Emergency Medicine questions. These questions are currently posted to a public Google Docs document, which allows anyone to post and answer questions.

Some questions already posted include:
- Can you share your tips for distinguishing between paroxysmal SVT & atrial fibrillation (when the rate is regular)?
- What are the contraindications to low-dose ketamine (0.1-0.5 mg/kg) for sedation or agitation?
- What is an accepted rate of miss for 1) ACS 2) PE 3) SA 4) Aortic dissection 5) C-spine fractures (requiring and not requiring treatment)?
Read about how David got started with this intriguing and innovative new project on his blog site Priceless Electrical Activity. Feel free to post more questions or take a stab at answering a question.
