Sinopse

SRU (pronounced "shrew") = Shock Resuscitation Unit. Training in, and managing, the SRU is one of the crown jewels of our residency. It is a crucible, a test of knowledge and strength, and a true manifestation of the tripartite mission of our Emergency Medicine Department - Leadership, Opportunity, and Excellence. This podcast is produced by the faculty and residents of the Department with the goal of sharing our education freely with one another and our professional community.

    In this rundown of our most recent Journal Club, Drs Soria, Murphy, and Whitford cover 3 articles looking into how best to manage a patient's airway in cardiac arrest. Should we just bag all these patients or should we move to intubating quickly? How good are EGDs? Are they better than intubation? The discussion also turns to the results of an abstract presented at the most recent SAEM Academic Assembly which outlines the first randomized control trial looking into airway management in out of hospital cardiac arrest.

    Whole Blood: More than the Sum of Its Components

    30/05/2018 Duração: 26min

    The choice of resuscitative fluid for bleeding trauma patients is clear: blood is your go to. But what kind of blood product is best. Recently literature has suggested that the transfusion of blood components in a 1:1:1 ratio portended better outcomes. Most recently, based on some emerging military literature, it has been suggested that the transfusion of whole blood may result in improved outcomes and reduce overall transfusions. In this podcast, we will take a look at three articles that look into the feasibility of and benefits from the transfusion of whole blood.
