What I learned from yesterday’s feed:
- Everybody wants a photo with Joe Lex (see examples on Storify)
- Hands-on defibrillation can be safe. Be sure to look at the literature though. (references on Storify)
- Benzo’s may increases delirium in critical patients, consider alternate Rx, such a Dexmedetomidine or Propofol
- Should assign staff member to be with family to answer questions when watching resuscitation (I like to assign a clinical member of the care team, when possible)
- Hetastarch = bad
- We can (and should) do something to prevent VAP starting in the ED
- Ultrasound first for infant/child abdominal pain, if must CT use low radiation dose protocol
- Oral 2% lidocaine for hiccups?
- Lots of great ENT tips
- Patients think well-dressed docs are smarter, but prefer EP in scrubs
- A. Fib can be dischargeable
- PE also?
- And so much more it’s ridiculous.
