    Troponin Update and LoDED Study Review with Rick Body

    Troponin Update and LoDED Study Review with Rick Body

    Over the last few years many of us in the UK have started to incorporate high-sensitivity troponin into the assessment of patients presenting with chest pain.
    We have seen these samples taken at ever shorter intervals, aiming to discharge low risk patients safely, sooner from the Emergency Department (ED). This has been driven in part by the "Four Hour Emergency Access Target"​ as well as increased crowding in overwhelmed EDs.
    In this podcast, internationally renowned researcher Prof Rick Body discusses the latest in troponin research and the recent LoDED study.
     
    The Shownotes
     
    The various organisations mentioned by Rick can be found here:
     
    The Innovation Agency Webinar Series
     
    The NHS Accelerated Access Collaborative
     
    The CQUIN that will be implemented later this year (page 15 for the Troponin section)
     
    The Draft NICE recommendations

    April 2020 podcast round up St Emlyn's

    April 2020 podcast round up St Emlyn's

     
    It's been another busy month at St Emlyn's, with the publication of 15 blog posts and five podcasts, but there does seem to be an awful lot to talk about!
     
    Of course there have been multiple posts and podcasts about COVID-19, and you can fiind all of these on our special St Emlyn's page. Highlights have included the three RCEM/St Emlyn's Webinars which we are delighted to host in podcast form.
     
    It's not just been coronavirus though, we have also dipped out toes into exercise and nutrition, graphic design and horticulture!
     
    Parts of the site have also undergone a bit of a redesign with the curriculum pages now easier to navigate to find that post to fioll an e-portfolio hole.
     
     
    We hope you're finding all of our output useful. Please do subscribe to the website (in the top right hand corner) and rate our podcast on iTunes.
     
    They'll be much more to come in May I am sure.
     
    Take care
     
    Iain
