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.


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:


  • 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


  • 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?


  • 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.
