I listen to ~90 #Podcasts on a (semi) regular basis. Let me give you a rundown of ALL of them and why you should listen to some amazing #FOAMed, especially for all the new #EmergencyMedicine interns. #FOAMed #MedEd #medtwitter
First of all, you need a good podcast app. I absolutely love Downcast. Great app, gives you more control over playback, downloading, and allows you to categorize your podcasts into playlists (picture 2). This is where you get to customize your #FOAMed experience! #medtwitter
In no particular order,

- Anesthesia and Critical Care Reviews and Commentary (ACCRAC). Great insight into Crit Care from an anesthesia perspective. Coming from EM, this is great to listen to- much different from my day-to-day! #FOAMed #FOAMcc #CriticalCare

Daremos un repaso discreto de CAD y analizaremos el texto de la NICE Pathway

Comentaremos con relación a las guías @ispad_org, una de las más utilizadas a nivel mundial

En pocas palabras, el diagrama con relevante información
#CAD puede presentarse en #T1D y #T2Diabetes. Debido a obesidad, han aumentado los casos en esta última, presentándose también como debút.

#T1D es resultado de destrucción autoinmune progresiva de células beta. Ocurre a una tasa de 6-8%/año en aquellos con Dx establecido.

Theres such an important topic that I think we spend far too little time on in #EmergencyMedicine +in the regular press: pediatric #concussions. They're amazingly common-and show up in our EDs nearly 200,000 times/year-but despite thousands of studies, we still know very little.
At the most basic level, we've typically assumed there's no structural damage in concussion. We've called it a functional derangement, with transient loss of neurologic function following brain trauma. Loss of consciousness is not required.
With the advent of more advanced neuroimaging techniques+the development of lab tests like the Banyan Brain Trauma Indicator(a combination of proteins found mildly reliably to be released in head injury), we continue to find structural correlates in what we once called concussion

I need to talk about some shit that just went down.

Thread/13
Ambulance toned out for an infant in cardiopulmonary arrest.

Not known when they were last seen normal.

A fucking infant.
There’s snow on the roads. No helicopters are flying. I don’t have an ICU.

Right now it’s on us.

We got ready:

ET tube
Pads
Defibrillator
IO
Pharmacy
Respiratory
Broselow Tape
BVM
Suction
All the trimmings

Happy Friday! This is @TarakTrivedi. I'm an Emergency Physician and research fellow at @NCSP_UCLA. For #NCSPScholarFriday, I want to share research and perspectives on systems of care for psychiatric emergencies.
2/ While training @HGHED in @AlamedaCounty, I cared for hundreds of patients in psychiatric crisis, and I learned about the roles of #EMS , #Police , and #EmergencyMedicine. For Psych Emergencies, many cities have 911 systems that look something like this:
3/ Most places, Police are the de-facto response to 911 calls for psych-emergencies. As a result, Crisis-Intervention-Training (CIT) programs for police have proliferated, and even led to reduced arrests @NAMICommunicate #NCSPScholarFriday
