    Ep 229 - Top Twenty Papers of 2023 - Part 1 - Airway

    In this two part podcast special Iain and Simon go through twenty of the top papers from the last year or so, as presented by Simon at the Big Sick Conference in Zermatt earlier this year. All the details and more discussion can be found on the blog site.
    In Part 1 they discuss all things airway, including where we should be intubating patients needing immediate haemorrhage control. VL vs DL, the effect of blade size on intubation success, whether small adult ventilation bags are better than larger versions, intubating comatose poisoned patients, and more.

    Ep 231 - February and March 2024 Monthly Round Up - Liver disease, mCPR, Global Health and Elderly patients

    After the bumper double paper review episode, we fit two months of blog content into one episode. Iain and Simon discuss the management of the patient with chronic liver disease who has an acute decompensation, global health connections, whether mechanical CPR is more effective than human CPR and the potential effects on elderly patients staying in the ED overnight.

    Lots of chat about St Emlyn’s WILD and just what you can expect if you join us in the Lake District in JUne, as well as discussion about ECMO in cardiac arrest and just how many of our patients with ’minor head injuries’ will actually have ongoing symptoms weeks and even months later.
