A short, focused discussion of emergency medicine topics with perspectives from emergency physicians as well as other specialties. Here's the problem: When I listen to a 45 minute lecture that goes through about 15 different studies and has 50 slides, I come out feeling like a genius. An hour later, I have forgotten 95% of it. Here's the solution: ercast. We cover a single issue and try to tease out all the relevant elements without overstuffing your frontal cortex. It's for physicians and anyone interested in a bare bones look at emergency care.
