We Don't Talk About Q-Word with MS-2.5 Jen Geller
I think we all dread the Q-word in emergency medicine. Now we have a little research on whether "quiet" impacts ED volumes. Is the superstition supported?
The VL -vs- DL Debate...2022...Pediatric Edition with Dr. Donoghue
Last week we talked to Dr. Hansel about VL versus DL for adults, and this week we shift focus to cover the pediatric perspective. As an attending physician in both the pediatric ICU and the pediatric ED at Children's Hospital of Philadelphia, Dr. Aaron Donoghue discusses his group's recent study on pediatric intubation and the new perspective that it brings to an area of medicine without many well-conducted, rigorously conducted studies.

Dr. Jan Hansel, a registrar in intensive care medicine in Manchester, England, joins us to discuss research and data about the growth of and the shift toward video laryngoscopes, as well as the European side of emergency and critical care medicine.

Not sure when this man sleeps. I can’t keep up with him. But he is right on! He knows how to encourage all of us in health care as we try to provide quality care, despite increasing government regulations and corporate greed from insurance companies.
Compare wearing a mask to jock itch?
I’ve listened to a few episodes of this podcast. It’s professionally made and typically enjoyable.
I listened to a recent episode between Stanton and another doctor talk about masks. I could not believe that the guest, presumably a respected doctor, compared wearing a mask to jock itch and of course we make people wear pants, we should make them wear a mask! That’s really the viewpoint we’re going to go with as it relates to our civil liberties and forced masking? Where’s the research on the dangers of wearing a mask? Of course we should make people wear pants, I really don’t know why that viewpoint could even be considered as apples to apples from two medical professionals. Came off very arrogant, as if your viewpoint is the obvious viewpoint and anyone who thinks otherwise is ignorant/dumb.
That’s just my two sense; the episode echoed the news media, and it’s those ideology’s that could put people into fear, mask shame others, etc. what about grocery store attendants who readjust their mask, touch products, thereby exposing themself and others? As you alluded to in the podcast, it’s almost impossible to prevent exposure, so why are we looking at eradication of the virus rather than building immunity?
Thanks for the opportunity to review and keep up the (otherwise) good content.
Great Interviews in Information
