    PSA: Incidental Exposure to Fentanyl is NOT a thing!

    PSA: Incidental Exposure to Fentanyl is NOT a thing!

    Today's episode of the podcast is a myth busting on all the media reports about first responders overdosing by being exposed to fentanyl in the field by incidental contact. This is physically impossible and the misinformation out there has scared a lot of people, cost us lots of money in the form of hazmat responses and shutting down hospitals, and prevented overdose patients from getting the timely care they need in an emergency. This episode will systematically go through every argument why fentanyl is NOT harmful via incidental exposure and debunk these myths to give first responders one less thing to worry about while they do their frequently dangerous yet vital work.

    Neonatal Resuscitation with Drs. Azif Safarulla, Dan McCollum, and Jessica Gancar

    Neonatal Resuscitation with Drs. Azif Safarulla, Dan McCollum, and Jessica Gancar

    EM Basic is finally back with a new episode. Today's episode will discuss neonatal resuscitation with Dr. Azif Safarulla, a neonatologist at Augusta University. Dr. Dan McCollum and Dr. Jessica Gancar interview Dr. Safarulla on the nuts and bolts of running a successful neonatal resuscitation in the ED. These can be one of the scariest populations we have in the ED so it's important to have a rational and logical approach to quickly assess and intervene on our smallest and youngest patient population.

Too deadly

My favourite medical podcast (3rd year medical student, Australia)

Brilliant

Thank you Steve for making my car journeys so much more interesting! It is like having an easy to listen to senior reg sitting next to me, talking me through what could be my next patient, with loads of practical info and clinical pearls. Interesting, to the point, nothing I don't need to know. Sometimes I wish generic drug names would be used to make it easier for your Aussie listeners!
